In November, I had the privilege of working with James Decker and Bob Werts of the North East Pennsylvania Regional Counter Terrorism Task Force. We conducted our 7 day Tactical Operations for Terrorism Response Class in the fine city of Stroudsburg, PA. 30 officers from 12 different agencies attended. I would like to thank Bob and Jim for all their hard work in getting this class to PA and to the fine officers that attended.
I also had the opportunity to work with Greg Hentschel from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) this month. 12 officers from South Carolina participated in a custom 4 day sniper class at GTI's Barnwell SC Complex. A special thanks to our instructors Kirk Corley and Doyle Burdette in making this class a success.
In the last few months, I have been talking to my clients in law enforcement about GTI's new Gangs and Terrorism
courses which were developed by Lou Savelli, retired 21 year NYPD Officer and founding member of NYPD Gang CAGE unit. Can you imagine terrorist cells working in the US with well known street gangs to launder money, smuggle arms, and further their agenda?! Well it is already happening, but is your gang unit actively pursuing this connection in your city or township? The Gangs and Terrorism course is a 3 day lecture based class will open your eyes to a subject matter not discussed or shared by many in the law enforcement community.
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.
I would love to help bring this class to your area. If interested, contact me directly for more information!
The month of November is special because we celebrate and give thanks to those Veteran's that have given so much of their lives for this great country. Mark Twain once said "In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it cost nothing to be a patriot."
Thank you for all you do!
