Threat Assessments of Targeted Violence Incidents

Threat Assessment of Targeted Violence: Managing Threats of Active Assailants and Terrorist Attacks.

by August Vernon / April 18, 2017

In light of recent incidents such as active shooters, terrorist attacks and law enforcement ambushes, this no-cost orientation-level training identifies the types of adversaries that have been identified as a threat of "targeted violence." These incidents can include active assailants, lone wolf incidents, criminal elements, law enforcement ambushes, hate and extremist groups, and complex terrorist attacks.  

With the potential for these types of incidents within the United States, it is important that first responders and emergency planners are aware of this current and emerging threat from these types of "adversaries." Participants will understand the adversary, components of threat analysis, how threat information can be collected at the local level, and how threats are assessed.
