UW-Green Bay: Addresses counter terrorism in a new training series | WisBusiness
Green Bay, Wis.—Attacks of domestic terrorism in the U.S. have increased dramatically in the past decade.1 In fact, violent extremism has become a serious and complex threat in large and small cities throughout the country. In response, UW-Green Bay has created a training series called “Countering Terrorism” for business and local government officials, managers and personnel to better understand and prevent the threat in their communities and places of business.“Countering Terrorism” will address key ideological and outsider group influences that may contribute to violent or criminal acts against person, institution or community. The series will be offered in October and November at an accessible price point in an online and interactive format for local, regional or national municipalities. A highlight of the series will be a panel discussion with key officials from Seattle and the Minneapolis area, communities that have been in the national spotlight for incidents of domestic terrorism.
