  • Homegrown Violent Extremism-Mayhem in America
    8 Hours
    A course designed to provide Terrorism Liaison Officers, (TLOs); Law Enforcement in General; and other First Responders an appreciation, as well as a forewarning, pursuant to Homegrown Violent Extremism, (HVE) threats, both religious based and not, that are currently or may become prevalent within the USA. Domestic Terrorism and all it entails will be explored during this course.

    The question is not "IF" it will occur but "WHEN".

    Case studies of past HVE events within the USA and globally will be scrutinized and evaluated for possible pre-incident indicators. As in all courses described herein, "COMMUNICATION" will be a feature topic.

     

  • Countering Violent Extremism / Advanced & Positive Communication Skills
    8 Hours
    This course is structured to highlight the dynamic that Terrorism Liaison Officers, (TLOs); as well as general Law Enforcement Officers, (LEOs); and First Responders; are capable, via improved communication skills, of developing meaningful relationships within communities of all ethnicities, beliefs and religions.

    This course is designed to reinforce the wisdom that simple but effective proactive communicative efforts within a community potentially have the benefit of diminishing or lessening the often tragic circumstances requiring a reactive response.  Providing the ability to "Influence" and "Change Behavior" when needed, entirely with the spoken word will be explored during this course.

    A discussion of current events worldwide, that concern all threats, terrorism, and radical religion, will be expanded during class to reinforce and amplify the curriculum.

     

  • Countering Violent Extremism / Attitudes & Approaches of Current Threats
    8 Hours
    This course is designed to explore the "Values-Attitudes-and Beliefs" of those toxic actors determined to cause death and destruction and instill fear from within the USA. These actors may be religious based or not. Active Shooter threats will be explored during this course.

    In this course, the "WHY" and the foundation of the "WHY" will be examined for awareness purposes, as well as potential pre-incident indicators that could cross the radar of a LEO. Not simply the "Motive" but the emotional and deeply held convictions present in actors bent on destruction and death.

The impressive "stats" generated with tips and leads, or Suspicious Activity Reporting (SARs) resulting from this training in California, have been garnering national attention.

     

  • Radicalization in a Social Media World
    8 Hours
    This course is designed to RAISE THE AWARENESS of students and will examine the Social Media Radicalization (SMR) phenomenon as it pertains to Radicalization and Conversion in the contemporary world. The course aim is, as mentioned to Raise Awareness, so that if information/intelligence within this realm appears on a TLO's radar, then potential investigative action might be enhanced.

    Online Radicalization now occurs with regard to a wide range of extremist causes within the USA, many of which are not religious based: Toxic Radical ideologies involving White Hate, Racism, Right Wing, Sovereign Citizens, and Eco-Terror all employ and greatly benefit from aggressive SMR.

    However, because of contemporary events, this course will scrutinize the toxic message and efforts of Radical Islam, specifically ISIS and Al Qaeda, and how that message can be so effectively and efficiently delivered to, in particular, impressionable youth worldwide.

     

  • Countering Violent Extremism / The Islamic State Threat
    Globally & Domestically_State Sponsored Terrorism

    8 Hours
    This course in no way will seek to demean law abiding devout and secular Muslims. Islam is a robust and potent religion with a lengthy standing on the world stage.

    However, we would be remiss without a course examining the transnational expansion of the most well-known Radical and Toxic Individual Muslim Extremists; and how State Sponsorship has enabled that progress. This course will scrutinize a variety of specific and contemporary toxic Islamic threats confronting the USA from within and outside our borders.
