GTI Monthly Mission Brief
A Word from GTI's President

Chadd Harbaugh
As professionals of law enforcement and military organizations, it is important to direct our resources toward countering and preventing extreme violence as through numerous attempted and successful terrorist attacks. Earlier this month GTI Sr. Instructor, Peter Spagnolo, presented these issues to an audience of law enforcement professionals from the Bahamas, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Florida, Alabama and South Carolina. It is my firm belief that together we can accomplish anything! Because it is so very important to study the ideology of the individuals who commit or advocate acts of terrorism, the process by which these ideas develop and the factors that influence the behaviors of extremist groups, GTI will continue the counterterrorism speakers circuit while continuously adding relevant courses to our curriculum. There is a lot of work to be done but fortunately we have some great people in office who are whole heatedly concerned with the safety and security of our country.

-- Chadd Harbaugh, GTI President
