The National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime’s (NCAVC) primary mission is to provide behavioral-based operational support for law enforcement agencies involved in the investigation of unusual or repetitive violent crimes, communicated threats, terrorism, and other matters of interest to law enforcement and national security agencies. It offers this assistance through four behavioral Analysis Units with distinct responsibilities:
Resources are focused on matters involving terrorism investigations.
This unit addresses threats, arson, bombings, stalking, cyber-related violations, and anticipated or active crisis situations. BAU 2 also provides assistance in potentially non-violent investigations, such as white-collar crime, public corruption, organized crime, and civil rights matters.
Resources are focused on crimes perpetrated against child victims, including abductions, mysterious disappearances of children, homicides, and sexual victimization.
Resources are focused on actual and attempted homicides—especially those that involve an abduction, are apparently random, motiveless, or sexually oriented, or are known or suspected to be part of a series; sexual assaults, especially those committed by a stranger, or those known or suspected to be part of a series; missing persons where the circumstances indicate a strong possibility of foul play; and unidentified human remains where the manner of death is unknown or suspected to be homicide. Resources are primarily focused on serial, spree, mass, and other murders; sexual assaults; kidnappings; missing person cases; and other violent crimes targeting adult victims. BAU-4 also develops and maintains ViCAP Web, the national repository for these criteria cases.
