RIA: Domestic Radicalization and Recruitment: A Complex Threat for US Law Enforcement and Homeland Security

  • Passaic County, NJ

The NJ Regional Intelligence Academy (RIA) will be hosting a one day workshop titled: “Domestic Radicalization and Recruitment: A Complex Threat for US Law Enforcement and Homeland Security”.

COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.

DESCRIPTION

State and local law enforcement and homeland security personnel now face a wide array of ideologies in their local jurisdictions. To successfully detect and disrupt homegrown violence, law enforcement and homeland security personnel must be able to identify the processes of radicalization and recruitment by which ordinary Americans turn down a violent path killing innocent people. In this course, participants will study the process of radicalization and recruitment and learn a model for developing indicators to spot the tendencies of local citizens to move toward violence.  After describing this model, course attendees will review case studies of violent radicalization to identify ways to detect troubled individuals in their community. 

TARGET AUDIENCE

This program is designed for law enforcement and homeland security analysts.
