"TLO/FLO/ILO Basic Course"

8 HOUR COURSE

This is a one-day 8 hour course that trains and certifies Fusion Center Liaison Officers, whether they are called FLOs, TLOs or ILOs. This course covers their roles and responsibilities, the "system" they are connected to on the regional, state and national levels including key definitions and concepts, and finally the threat, normally focused on terrorism, both international and domestic. The impressive "stats" generated with tips and leads, or Suspicious Activity Reporting (SARs), resulting from this training in California, have been garnering national attention

“RADICALIZATION IN A SOCIAL MEDIA WORLD”

8 HOUR COURSE

 This course is designed to RAISE THE AWARENESS of students and will examine the Social Media Radicalization, (SMR) phenomenon as it pertains to Radicalization and Conversion in the contemporary world.  The course aim is, as mentioned to Raise Awareness, so that if information/intelligence within this realm appears on a TLO’s radar, then potential investigative action might be enhanced.

Online Radicalization now occurs with regard to a wide range of extremist causes within the USA, many of which are not religious based: Toxic Radical ideologies involving White Hate, Racism, Right Wing, Sovereign Citizens, and Eco-Terror all employ and greatly benefit from aggressive SMR.

However, because of contemporary events, this course will scrutinize the toxic message and efforts of those outlier Radical Muslims, specifically ISIS and Al Qaeda and their franchises, bent on death and destruction and how that message can be so effectively and efficiently delivered to, in particular, impressionable youth worldwide.   

Be present during this course when our Terror Expert Instructor attempts to radicalize a student during the Role Play scenario.
Listen to how it sounds and the words used and the arguments made.  It is impressive



“HOMEGROWN VIOLENT EXTREMISM-MAYHEM IN AMERICA”

8 HOUR COURSE

“Homegrown Violent Extremism-Mayhem in America” is a course designed to provide Terrorism Liaison Officers, (TLOs); Law Enforcement in General;  and other First Responders an appreciation, as well as a forewarning, pursuant to Homegrown Violent Extremism, (HVE) threats, both religious based and not, that are currently or may become prevalent within the USA.  Domestic Terrorism and all it entails will be explored during this course.

The question is not “IF” it will occur but “WHEN.” 

Case studies of past HVE events within the USA and globally will be scrutinized and evaluated for possible pre-incident indicators.

As in all courses described herein, “COMMUNICATION” will be a feature topic.


COUNTERING VIOLENT EXTREMISM 

“ADVANCED & POSITIVE COMMUNICATION SKILLS”

8 HOUR COURSE

This course is structured to highlight the dynamic that Terrorism Liaison Officers, (TLOs); as well as general Law Enforcement Officers, (LEOs); and First Responders; are capable, via improved communication skills, of developing meaningful relationships within communities of all ethnicities, beliefs and religions.

This course is designed to reinforce the wisdom that simple but effective proactive communicative efforts within a community potentially have the benefit of diminishing or lessening the often tragic circumstances requiring a reactive response.  Providing the ability to “Influence” and “Change Behavior,” when needed, entirely with the spoken word will be explored during this course.

A discussion of current events worldwide, that concern all threats, terrorism, and radical religion, will be expanded during class to reinforce and amplify the curriculum.

COUNTERING VIOLENT EXTREMISM

“ATTITUDES & APPROACHES OF CURRENT THREATS”

8 HOUR COURSE

This course is designed to explore the “Values-Attitudes-and Beliefs” of those toxic actors determined to cause death and destruction and instill fear from within the USA. These actors may be religious based or not.  Active Shooter threats will be explored during this course.

In this course, the “WHY” and the foundation of the “WHY” will be examined for awareness purposes, as well as potential pre-incident indicators that could cross the radar of a LEO. Not simply the “Motive” but the emotional and deeply held convictions present in actors bent on destruction and death.

COUNTERING VIOLENT EXTREMISM

“THE ISLAMIC STATE THREAT-GLOBALLY & DOMESTICALLY”

“STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM”

THIS COURSE IN NO WAY WILL SEEK TO DEMEAN LAW ABIDING DEVOUT AND SECULAR MUSLIMS. ISLAM IS A ROBUST AND POTENT RELIGION WITH A LENGHTY STANDING ON THE WORLD STAGE.

However, we would be remiss without a course examining the transnational expansion of the most well-known Radical and Toxic outlier Muslim strains; and how State Sponsorship has enabled that progress.

This course will scrutinize a variety of specific and contemporary toxic Muslim threats confronting the USA from within and outside our borders.    


"INTERVIEW AND INTERROGATION" (I&I)
24 Hour Course (3 Days) 

The course is designed primarily to enable students to plan a critical adversarial interview of a suspect/subject utilizing a linear time continuum with a beginning, middle and end, in order to legally obtain a voluntary confession. 

Instruction includes:

(NEW BLOCK OF INSTRUCTION ENTITLED:  "WINNING WITH WORDS")
HOW TO INFLUENCE AND CHANGE BEHAVIOR WITHOUT RESORTING TO FORCE

A)  WINNING WITH WORDS - How to Influence and Change Behavior

B) Communication principles to include
  • WITHOUT COMMUNICATION THERE CAN BE NO CONFESSION
  • How to establish and enhance rapport
  • Recognition of when communication is not established
  • Earning the right to INFLUENCE
C) The Fine Art of "Asking Questions" - Three Phases of Questioning  

D) Potential Non-Verbal Indicators of Deception, (always a slippery slope) to include:
  • Eye movement/Neurolinguistics
E) Potential Verbal Indicators of Deception

F) Victim/Witness Interviewing, to include:
  • The "Cognitive Interview"
G) Interview Dynamics and Fundamentals

H) Statement Analysis, to include:
  • A critique of the O.J. Simpson interview-The Power of Listening & Comprehending-How a single word may speak volumes
  • Comprehending the Answer - "What was said - how it was said - what does it sincerely mean"
  • Recognition of investigative avenues opened during interview
  • Formulating effective follow-up questioning in that regard
I) Transition from Interview to Interrogation
  • Confrontation
  • Questioning is over once the Interrogation arena is entered
  • Keys and themes
  • Arguments and persuasion techniques
The course teaches LEOs to not simply walk into a critical interview with no plan other than to ask questions, make statements and hope for the best. (We know you did it, do the right thing!)

The course teaches students to identify keys and themes pertinent to the interviewee, ("look at a man like he is the devil and you will never understand his motives, the 'why' of the crime, and the emotions raging within"), during the interview phase. Then utilize those suspect/subject keys and themes during the interrogation in an interviewer dominated setting designed to influence the suspect/subject on an EMOTIONAL level. (The UNIQUE ability to interview and interrogate and not have to rely solely on case facts is stressed in the class.)
