This course is designed to respond to an evolving threat landscape in the United States. As incidents of targeted violence continue to increase, the perpetrators of these incidents are often not ideologically motived and do not appear to fit the definition of a terrorist. Perpetrators of these incidents are often responding to a perceived grievance, which can vary in nature. The ID-TERC builds upon the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI), expanding beyond potential acts of terrorism, and provides a methodology for violence prevention that trains partners to identify, investigate, assess, and manage threats to homeland security, regardless of motive.
