Behavioral Threat Assessment (BeTA) Unit
The Behavioral Threat Assessment (BeTA) unit was developed by the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation (NC SBI) to take a proactive approach to prevent violence in our communities, 

Staffed by law enforcement officers, intelligence analysts and mental health professionals, the BeTA Unit Mission is to identify, investigate, evaluate and manage person(s) of concern within North Carolina who are recognized as having motive and means to develop, or act on an opportunity to commit a targeted attack. 

The BeTA Unit is intended to serve North Carolina law enforcement by assisting in the evaluation of persons of concern through an evidence-based threat assessment process. This process is intended to determine if a person of concern is exhibiting behaviors consistent with the pathway to violence and identify appropriate management and mitigation recommendations for the individual.
