The landscape of terrorist attacks has changed, the frequency of attacks has increased, and the targets are anywhere or anyone. Cops play a crucial role, as they are positioned to be the first and last line of defense. This webinar will take a look at ISIS tactics; the people committing acts of terrorism; intelligence collection before, during, and after an event; training; and event preparation. The webinar will look at how ISIS is convincing its followers to take up arms and what that might mean in the immediate future. The presenter will review attacks from within the United States and around the world to understand how ISIS is evolving to meet U.S. defensive tactics. Additionally, the webinar will look into how ISIS is using propaganda to target children and how children are reacting.
