Course Description

AWR-122-1 - Law Enforcement Prevention and Deterrence of Terrorist Acts (Train the Trainer)

Verified/Updated 10/01/2017

This course trains law enforcement personnel on actions they can take to prevent, deter and respond to terrorist acts. The law enforcement officer is part of the front line defense in preventing and deterring WMD terrorist
incidents where the release of WMD agents is likely to occur because of criminal actions. The nature of law enforcement officers’ daily work environment provides them with an enhanced understanding of the community not shared by the public. This heightened community awareness provides law enforcement officers with a unique opportunity to prevent or deter potential WMD terrorist incidents.

The course addresses awareness-level functions associated with WMD recognition, prevention and deterrence applications for law enforcement officers. Subject areas covered in the course include intelligence gathering, threat recognition, community-oriented policing, counterfeit identification detection,
information sharing among agencies and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) agents or materials that can be procured either legitimately or illegally to produce a WMD.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- discuss how the terrorist threat has evolved in terms of organization, structure, involved persons, and motivations,
- recognize phases and terrorist activities within the Terrorist Attack Cycle, - identify the indicators of terrorist cells and organizations that can lead to the disruption of terrorist attacks,
- identify how officers during the performance of their daily duties can assist with the prevention and deterrence of terrorism, - recognize common characteristics associated with counterfeit and altered domestic and international identity documents, - identify the types of materials—legal or illegal—that may be obtained from local sources to produce CBRNE agents as well as differentiate between labs used to produce clandestine drugs and those that produce CBRNE agents,
- practice strategies of prevention and deterrence in their response to a video of a routine police call, and
- successfully teach an indirect delivery of Law Enforcement Prevention and Deterrence of Terrorist Acts.
