Counter-Terrorism Training Available
The origins of this web site lie in recommendations made by the Counter-Terrorism Training Coordination Working Group convened by the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ's) Office of Justice Programs to examine the counter-terrorism tools available to law enforcement and first responder communities.
The working group focused its efforts on determining the training currently offered or being contemplated by DOJ components, identifying duplication or gaps, and recommending the most effective mechanisms for delivering training.
Recognizing that sharing information is essential to the coordination of efforts to support state and local counter-terrorism training, the Counter-Terrorism Training and Resources for Law Enforcement web site was born.
This portal web site serves as a single point of access to counter-terrorism training opportunities and related materials available across the Federal Government and from private and nonprofit organizations. These resources will help every law enforcement decisionmaker develop strategic plans for professional training and local emergency response.
Working group participants include the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, the National Institute of Justice, the Office for Domestic Preparedness, the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, the Office of Homeland Security, the Office of Justice Programs, the Office of the Police Corps and Law Enforcement Education, the U.S. Customs Service, and the U.S. Department of Labor. Working group membership will expand to include other federal agencies as well as nongovernmental organizations that represent affected constituencies.
