Who should attend:

This awareness level workshop is designed to enhance the knowledge of state/local law enforcement and public/private sector stakeholders by providing exposure to key elements of the improvised explosive device (IED) threat, surveillance detection methods and soft target awareness. The workshop illustrates baseline awareness and prevention actions that reduce vulnerabilities to counter the threat along with collaborating information sharing resources to improve preparedness. This designed approach better enables the owners and operators of critical infrastructure and key resources to deter, prevent, detect, protect against, and respond to terrorist use of explosives in the United States.
