Community-Based Counter-Terrorism Program
It will take the engagement of an entire community that knows ideologies, recognizes indicative signs, and communicates effectively to protect our city from terroristic threats – both children and adults, school staff and law enforcement.
Oftentimes, the opportunity to neutralize extremist behavior before it turns violent occurs at school-age. Whether a student makes threats to their school jokingly or angrily, it is still considered a criminal offense. Student presentations ensure that students know the repercussion of their actions, recognize indicators of dangerous behavior in other students, and understand when and where to take their concerns.
