The Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques (SPOT) program is a behavior observation and analysis program designed to provide the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Behavior Detection Officers (BDOs) with a means of identifying persons who pose or may pose potential transportation security risks by focusing on behaviors indicative of high levels of stress, fear, or deception. The SPOT program is a derivative of other behavioral analysis programs that have been successfully employed by law enforcement and security personnel both in the U.S. and around the world.
