The National Center for Biomedical Research and Training (NCBRT) at Louisiana State University (LSU), a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC) will be presenting the DHS approved training course entitled, "Law Enforcement Prevention and Deterrence of Terrorist Acts, Train-the-Trainer (AWR-122-1).
Cost: None, but spaces are limited and registration is required.
Geared toward trainers, this course format prepares instructors to teach the indirect format of the Law Enforcement Prevention and Deterrence of Terrorist Acts course. This course provides certified federal, state, and local law enforcement officers with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to assist in preventing and/or deterring weapons of mass destruction (WMD) terrorist incidents. Law enforcement officers are part of the front-line defense in preventing and deterring WMD terrorist incidents when the release of WMD agents is likely to occur as a result of criminal actions. The nature of their daily work environment provides them with an enhanced understanding of their community the general public does not share. This heightened community awareness, as well as the possibility that they may encounter terrorists unknowingly while conducting patrol functions, provides law enforcement officers with a unique opportunity to prevent or deter potential WMD terrorist incidents.
