NERAC is pleased to announce an offering of the Law Enforcement Prevention and Deterrence of Terrorist Acts (LEPDTA) Train-the-Trainer course, designed to teach law enforcement officers the principles of terrorism, including the various phases of the attack cycle, how the terrorist threat has and continues to evolve, and how individuals with interest in carrying out terrorist attacks become motivated to act. The two-day training is led by instructors from LSU’s NCBRT/Academy of Counter-Terrorist Education.
Course participants will learn:
- How to recognize signs of an impending attack;
- Tactics to prevent and deter terrorism throughout the performance of their regular duties;
- How to properly identify common characteristics associated with altered domestic and international identity documents.
Participants will then practice these skills through simulated video scenarios of routine police calls.
Additional course information can be found here: LEPDTA AWR-122 Brochure.
The course will be held on May 21st – 22nd, 2019 at the Westford Fire Department’s Training Room, located at 65 Boston Road, Westford, MA. The course will run for approximately 8 hours per day, from 8:00am – 5:00pm with a one hour lunch break. Attendance at both days is required, and lunch will be provided. Participants from the NERAC region are also eligible to submit for Backfill/Overtime reimbursement at up to $35/hour.
