Course Summary

Strategic, Tactical, and Resilient Interdiction of Violent Extremism (STRIVE) is a collaborative, 2-day training event that explores how community-based efforts to prevent terrorism and counter violent extremism (CVE) fit into our nation's broader homeland security mission.

The tuition-free course brings together public-safety practitioners and their community partners to learn and engage in meaningful discussions about the principles and practices that form the foundation of countering violent extremism in our nation's communities. 

Utilizing guidance from the Department of Homeland Security on preparedness, along with the application of proactive community policing strategies, STRIVE participants will:

  • develop an accurate, current, and well-informed perspective on terrorism and violent extremism in our communities;
  • explore why terrorism and violent extremism occur, and detect the key environmental and social elements that enable and sustain it within a community;
  • explore the merits of implementing a Community of Practice model as a tool for preventing terrorism and countering violent extremism at the community level;
  • identify information-driven, community-based strategies that deny terrorism and violent extremism of its intended objectives; and
  • recognize the significance of resilience as a mechanism for dealing with fear, uncertainty, and disorder that terrorism and violent extremism can inspire.


Scope

STRIVE is a national training program that directly supports the U.S. strategy to prevent terrorism, counter violent extremism, and build community resiliency in support of our nation's National Preparedness Goal (NPG).

Target Audience

STRIVE is intended to engage diverse audiences of community stakeholders involved in, or seeking to be part of, community-based CVE efforts. Inclusive in design, STRIVE is appropriate for sworn law enforcement, public-safety personnel, as well as non-sworn community members. Targeted audience members include officials representing local, state, tribal, and territorial leadership; community leaders (including faith-based groups and community organizations); campus communities; law enforcement (all levels and to include fusion center personnel); and representatives of communities targeted for recruitment by violent extremists, and additional relevant stakeholders.

View Description

Community Policing – Improving Police Efficacy and Building Trust is a TUITION-FREE, 2.5-day Instructor Development Program (IDP) sponsored by the USDOJ, COPS Office and provided by the Virginia Center for Policing Innovation (VCPI). The core curriculum presented in this program challenges participants to consider community policing as a means of building trust and achieving the public safety mission by engaging the community in the shared responsibility of effective policing.

Participating trainers examine issues which contribute to a cycle of dysfunction that, left unchecked, can have devastating impacts on police practitioners, their agencies and communities. They explore strategies for facilitating important discussions regarding racial profiling–related policy issues, the ineffectiveness of racial profiling in enforcement activities, and the costly impact of racial profiling (real or perceived) on the community. The core curriculum encourages participants to develop and employ more functional patrol techniques that increase cooperation from community members, increase efficiency in arrests and seizure activity, and decrease liability associated with complaints.

Participating trainers will have online access to comprehensive curriculum resources including instructional materials, lesson plans, and multimedia presentations to utilize during their own, local training sessions with fellow officers.

For additional information or questions regarding the program, please contact VCPI Program Manager David Gardner at dgardner@vcpionline.org or 804-644-0679.

Audience:
Ideal candidates include law enforcement professionals/trainers with, at a minimum:

  • basic knowledge of community policing;
  • instructional experience;
  • current training responsibilities within their organization or academy; and
  • a “good faith” agreement indicating a willingness and ability to deliver the training to other officers (to be completed by the participant and a supervisor after registration).


Registration Requirements:
Due to the limited number of seats available in this program, registration is open to a maximum of three (3) personnel from any single organization. Registration is a two-step process:

 1.  Initial online registration at vcpitraining.org
 2.  Submission of a signed Instructor Development Program Participant Agreement within ten (10) days of registering online. (download it below)

The purpose of the two-step process is to ensure that participants and their supervisors recognize the importance of this grant-funded training. By completing the agreement form, supervisors are simply acknowledging that the IDP participant(s) will be provided opportunities to deliver the core curriculum to fellow officers within one year of completing the program. It also asks for organization support of simple data reporting to VCPI as required under the COPS Office grant funding.
