TRAPP - Terrorism Recognition, Awareness & Prevention
REGISTER via the EventBrite link in the email or bottom below. DO NOT RSVP on this page.> Learn More
TRAPP is designed to familiarize students regarding terrorism-related indicators, and how to effectively report this information.
TRAPP is a powerful four hour or half day training event that puts the power of knowledge and understanding behind the “see something, say something campaign.” Whether as a stand-alone terrorism prevention and outreach training event to either public or private sector students, or as a key component of a fusion center’s FLO, TLO or ILO certification program, TRAPP is the most cost effective way to develop that collaborative effort and information sharing environment. Terrorist attacks are horrible, but too many times we discover they were also preventable. Suspicious Activity wasn’t recognized, and how too securely report it wasn’t understood, and pre-incident indicators were simply missed.
About 75% of TRAPP is aimed at understanding terrorism, especially the pre-incident indicators of terrorist actions, and 25% understanding the system in place for reporting, both the fusion centers and FBI. It’s building an appreciation of the threat, and how to leverage the system in place to stop it. It’s about stopping the next San Bernardino, Colorado Springs, Chattanooga, Charleston or Boston Marathon attack. Aimed at audiences from 50-500
• To educate students in recognizing indicators of terrorism
• To identify domestic and international terrorist groups, ideologies, and methods of executing terrorist acts
• How to report suspicious activity
Starts at 8am
Registration: Please use Eventbrite to register and RSVP.
