From the civil unrest that led to widespread rioting and casualties though most of 2020 to the recent bombings in Nashville and El Monte, California, spontaneous violence and organized attacks by anarchist and other extremist groups against law enforcement and public facilities remain a real and present danger to our Nation and local communities. Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) remain a weapon of choice because of the relative ease of obtaining and assembling the necessary components.
Join us for our February 9th meeting as we welcome Rodney Andreasen, Threat Assessment / Training Specialist at Counter Threat Group, LLC, and Lt. Col. Doug Wilson (Ret), Assistant Vice President of Advancement at Samford University and Co-founded Counter Threat Group.
