Gangs and Terrorism
Terrorists targeting America do not operate in a vacuum. They often conspire, utilize and recruit others to further their goals. Most often, and not so obscure, is the partnership between gangs and terrorists developed within communities and prisons across the country. This is not a new concept nor is it merely an historical one, but a current and growing issue that is critical to the protection of the United States. The partnership between gangs and terrorists create new concerns for counter terrorism officials and law enforcement in general.
At the conclusion of the Gangs and Terrorism course, students will have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of gangs and terrorists and how they work together. They will be able to identify gangs and terrorists within their jurisdiction. Students will have the training to identify the indicators of terrorist activities involving gangs and terrorist groups within their community. This course consists of 3 days (24 hours) of lecture.
Gangs and Terrorism - Investigation and Interdiction
Law Enforcement Officers must consider getting out of the 'first responder' mode and into the counter-terrorist mode. They should patrol potential targets as part of routine shift patrols, by utilizing systematically unsystematic patrol techniques, conduct aggressive traffic enforcement, make vehicle stops that are more inquisitive, fully investigate 'suspicious' person's calls and conduct surveillance of potential targets.
At the conclusion of the Gangs and Terrorism - Investigation and Interdiction course, students will be able to: Utilize criminal interdiction methods as a counter-terrorism strategy; Have the understanding of the importance of proactive law enforcement in the fight against terrorism as well as the importance of working with local security forces; Have the tools to identify potential targets of a terrorist attack; and identify local potential terrorist blending regions and hawalas. This course consists of 2 additional days of lecture after attending GTI's Gangs and Terrorism course.
