The National Capital Region Complex Coordinated Attack Working Group is sponsoring suspicious activity recognition training for law enforcement personnel and non-law enforcement personnel in the National Capital Region. Below, you will find three types of courses to choose from.

For the law enforcement certification courses, responses received after December 31 will be added to the waiting list.
Basic Law Enforcement Certification Course
The 5-Day/40-Hour SIRA® Law Enforcement Certification Course has proven extremely effective. Instructors focus on participants’ threat recognition skills, develop their proficiency with field threat assessment, ensure proficiency with field Security Interviewing, and enhance their understanding and application of proven threat mitigation protocols. This advanced tactical course specifically addresses the modus operandi of Person Borne Improvised Explosive Device (PBIED) and applies the SIRA® techniques on early detection and mitigation of such perpetrators.

In addition, attending participants will learn how to integrate the use of Explosives Detection Dog (EDD) teams for field threat detection and interception of suicide bombers and other potential threat elements. Students will participate in several in-class workshops, hands-on tactical training, and dynamic field exercises. Graduating participants will be able to successfully identify potential threats, classify them, and apply proper threat mitigation.

The Basic Law Enforcement Certification will be held from 8:30am - 6:00pm daily. Specific information and location information will be sent once you have been enrolled in the course.
