362: Informant Development for Law Enforcement to Fight Terrorism

362: Informant Development for Law Enforcement to Fight Terrorism

LENGTH: 3 days

An important seminar for Law Enforcement to learn how to successfully identify, develop and recruit useful informants and sources for the local fight against terrorism.

All law enforcement officers know that informant/source development and handling is essential to identify, prevent and/or solve terrorist attacks on their community.

Law enforcement officers also know it is essential to understand the "mindset” and "belief structure” of any individual they are trying to recruit as a source of information.

This seminar is specifically structured to provide these skills to law enforcement officers recognizing that homeland security is local security.

The development of a "terrorist” informant is different in many ways from the development of general "criminal” informants.

It is essential that law enforcement officers are provided the tools and tactics to target and recruit informants in this new evolving war with Jihadist terrorism.

This important course includes an honest, detailed background discussion of what the radicalization process teaches about Islam to potential jihadist recruits and how Islam is used by extremists to justify the Militant Jihadism.

The law enforcement officer developing informants must under have a working knowledge of the roots of the terrorist actions observed by today's Jihadist such as the phenomena of "taqiyya” and "kitman” or the role of deception by Jihadis will be illustrated and explored with examples.

The concept and importance of the meaning of "slander” within the Muslim context is also explored to provide additional understanding to the law enforcement officer concerned with Jihadist terrorism within their community.

This course will train Law Enforcement Officers how to:

  • Identify, approach and recruit sources to identify, penetrate and report on the potential Jihadist problems within their jurisdiction.

  • Provide the tools and tactics required to identify and develop counterterrorist informants/sources.

  • Understand the differences between development of general criminal informants/ sources and the development of counterterrorism informants/ sources.

This course will provide you with an understanding of Jihadist Islamic Doctrine:

  • A detailed knowledge of the process of radicalization and training directed against Muslims by Jihadists to recruit them to support or conduct acts of terrorism.

  • The Jihadist interpretation of Islamic Doctrine and Law to justify terrorism.

  • Tactics to use when talking to people within your community who are in a position to support law enforcement's fight in the war on Jihadist Terrorism.
