Course Summary

Strategic, Tactical, and Resilient Interdiction of Violent Extremism (STRIVE) is a collaborative, 2-day training event that explores how community-based efforts to prevent terrorism and counter violent extremism (CVE) fit into our nation's broader homeland security mission.

The tuition-free course brings together public-safety practitioners and their community partners to learn and engage in meaningful discussions about the principles and practices that form the foundation of countering violent extremism in our nation's communities. 

Utilizing guidance from the Department of Homeland Security on preparedness, along with the application of proactive community policing strategies, STRIVE participants will:

  • develop an accurate, current, and well-informed perspective on terrorism and violent extremism in our communities;
  • explore why terrorism and violent extremism occur, and detect the key environmental and social elements that enable and sustain it within a community;
  • explore the merits of implementing a Community of Practice model as a tool for preventing terrorism and countering violent extremism at the community level;
  • identify information-driven, community-based strategies that deny terrorism and violent extremism of its intended objectives; and
  • recognize the significance of resilience as a mechanism for dealing with fear, uncertainty, and disorder that terrorism and violent extremism can inspire.

Scope

STRIVE is a national training program that directly supports the U.S. strategy to prevent terrorism, counter violent extremism, and build community resiliency in support of our nation's National Preparedness Goal (NPG).

Target Audience

STRIVE is intended to engage diverse audiences of community stakeholders involved in, or seeking to be part of, community-based CVE efforts. Inclusive in design, STRIVE is appropriate for sworn law enforcement, public-safety personnel, as well as non-sworn community members. Targeted audience members include officials representing local, state, tribal, and territorial leadership; community leaders (including faith-based groups and community organizations); campus communities; law enforcement (all levels and to include fusion center personnel); and representatives of communities targeted for recruitment by violent extremists, and additional relevant stakeholders.

    Advanced Search and Seizure is a comprehensive, blended-learning course focusing on Constitutional concepts related to the 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendments of the United States Constitution.  Through the use of scenario-based training, participants will explore the limitations and framework of these amendments utilizing up-to-date case law from the United States Supreme Court along with various persuasive or compelling rulings from federal circuits around the United States. Participants will learn and understand procedures involving various legal principles they must follow from the initial police/citizen encounter to various seizures, searches, and/or interrogations. 

    The legal issues to be addressed by this course affect law enforcement in a variety of ways.  First, the manner in which an officer conducts law enforcement operations may influence the prosecution of offenders.  Additionally, the professionalism and credibility of officers and agencies will be scrutinized and challenged where cases are lost due to a technical failure by officers to follow the ever-changing legal requirements.  Finally, officers and agencies may face exposure to civil liability where there has been some deviation from the constitutional rules.

    This course is ideal for all sworn law enforcement personnel, regardless of rank.
