AWR-219 Site Protection through Observational Techniques

The UND Department of Public Safety is hosting the Department of Homeland Security course Site Protection through Observational Techniques (AWR-219).  We have hosted this course a few times and I would highly recommend and encourage attendance from your areas.  

Emergency responders, security professionals, security support staff, and the public must work together to identify suspicious objects, substances, and people. This course trains public safety personnel to improve their observational techniques by using a four-step ongoing screening process that includes increasing protective awareness, identifying preoperational behaviors, evaluating, and taking action. Participants will use fictional scenarios to examine each step of the process.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to better recognize, communicate, and act upon suspicious behaviors that could indicate a terrorist attack.

 Professional Disciplines: Law Enforcement, Public Safety Communications, Transportation Security, Private Sector/Corporate Security and Safety Professionals

The target audience for the Direct Delivery version of this course is public safety personnel or other personnel who have extensive contact with the public.

 This course is completely free of charge and N.D. Post Approved for law enforcement officers.  All will need to bring your FEMA SID number with you to class. If you do not have a FEMA SID, you can register for one at this link: (https://cdp.dhs.gov/FEMASID)

 Contact me with any questions and please email me if you would like to attend.
