Homegrown Violent Extremism Identification and Prevention
Recent violent incidents in the U.S. involving lone gunmen demonstrate the potential danger, lethality, and effectiveness of an attack by a single individual. Most of these incidents have been committed by U.S. Citizens.
Ideology based violence is on the rise and understanding the threat this poses to local communities is vital to law enforcement. This two-day, three-hours each evening, course will focus on the sources of violent ideology, who consumes this material, indicators of possible violence, and prevention prior to violent acts. How can these offenders be identified prior to an attack? This course will also focus on coordination efforts among state and federal law enforcement, effective policing, and techniques useful to identify and disrupt acts prior to occurrence. Total hours 6.
