Dierctions are in description, no attachment. Changes in Response to and Prevention of Terrorism

Competencies Addressed in This Discussion

  • Competency 3: Articulate how terrorism impacts policy and operations of law enforcement in America.

Introduction

In your readings, you have covered many of the changes in policy, training, and procedure that have occurred as a result of terrorism. There are two basic ways law enforcement addresses terrorism: response and prevention. We will discuss one aspect of each.

  • Response: Over the years, there have been several evolutions in the response of local law enforcement, the first responders to an active shooter. With the introduction of the lone wolf-type of terrorist attack, these tactics are once again undergoing a metamorphosis.
  • Prevention: Local law enforcement is able to prevent terrorism in some instances. Many of us think of prevention as making the target harder to get to or increasing police presence. We will discuss a unique process some are calling counter-radicalization.

For your initial discussion post:

  • Contrast the evolution of the response of law enforcement to the active shooter prior to, and after, terrorist attacks like the one in San Bernardino.
  • Identify what is meant by counter-radicalization.
  • Explain two concepts of COP that are included in the concept of counter-radicalization.

Response Guidelines

Respond to at least two of your peers’ posts. When responding to your peers, explain whether their posts included information similar to, or different from, your own. What additional perspectives about active shooter response or counter-radicalization were pointed out by other learners? How did that impact your assessment of the response? What additional connections can you make specific to counter-radicalization, based on your review of the perspectives shared by learners? Where it is possible, use examples from current events to enhance your responses to other learners.
