For more than two decades, Quindlen Krovatin has trained federal law enforcement agents, corporate threat assessment teams, and school security personnel in information elicitation and interview techniques. Using live behavioral simulations to portray potential threats, disgruntled employees and students of concern, Quin provides clients with the most realistic subject interview training available within the artificial confines of the classroom environment.
Quin first got involved in the field of threat assessment in 2002 as part of the Safe School Initiative, a landmark partnership between the National Threat Assessment Center of the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Education in the aftermath of the Columbine High School massacre. Quin played a troubled high school student in trainings across the country.
In 2010, his relationship with the Secret Service through the Safe School Initiative led Quin to begin teaching Special Agents and Uniformed Division Officers at the James J. Rowley Training Center. Since then, Quin has taught hundreds of incoming recruits how to interview subjects suffering from specific mental illnesses as part of their Protective Intelligence curriculum, so that they can gather the information relevant to separating the few who pose threats from the many who make threats.
Training the Secret Service has led to opportunities to teach agents from many other federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, the U.S. Marshals and the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group. Quin continues to work with the U.S. Capitol Police, NCIS and the Secret Service to this day. A reputation for providing cutting edge interactive training for American law enforcement personnel brought Quin to the attention of the corporate sector in 2015.
Quin has received over 500 hours of psychodrama training from an American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama (ASGPP) board-certified Trainer, Educator and Practitioner (TEP).
His attention to detail, dedication to craft and wealth of experience has made Quin a valued partner of clients across the fields of law enforcement, education and industry for 20 years and counting.
