Tactical Response to Terror Incidents

Hours: 16
Tuition: Tuition Free Training Grant Funded

Program Information:

There is no way to predict when the next terror attack will occur, but we can better prepare ourselves for when it does. Globally, explosives are used in nearly 70% of all terrorist attacks.    Armed assaults have already been proven to be an all too real threat to the security of our Country.  This 16 hour course of instruction is designed to prepare police officers to take immediate action to a terrorist event.  Upon completing this training, students will be able to identify potential terrorist activity and initiate a response to a terror attack in progress.  This course will be comprised of lecture and practical exercises in SLEA’s 4-D immersive “tactical village.” 

Registration for this program is restricted to law enforcement personnel.

Topics Include:

  • Identifying Potential Targets

  • Target Hardening

  • Indicators Associated with Terrorist Attacks

  • Suicide Bombers

  • The Israeli Model

  • Rapid Deployment Tactics

  • Multiple Attack Counter Terror Action Capabilities (MACTAC)

  • Assaulting Mass Transit Vehicles

**Cancellations for this class must be received by SLEA 35 days prior to the start of the program in order to avoid being billed!**
