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). This course has been certified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Preparedness Directorate, National Training and Education Division (NTED) and is listed in the registry of approved courses as published by NTED.

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.

    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). This course has been certified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Preparedness Directorate, National Training and Education Division (NTED) and is listed in the registry of approved courses as published by NTED.

    Course Summary

    Every year, more and more criminals turn to the Dark Web (a network of encrypted websites that are invisible to traditional web browsers and search engines) to hide their tracks and protect their anonymity in criminal activities ranging from narcotics purchases, to money laundering schemes, to human trafficking rings, and more.

    But how do criminals even access the dark web? And once they’re there, what exactly do they do? How do they communicate with one another? What trends do law enforcement professionals need to be aware of and how can they leverage Dark Web technologies to combat crime in their localities in the digital age?

    Introduction to the Dark Web provides participants with answers to all these questions and more in a one-day, comprehensive overview that covers:

    • Dark Web Networks (Tor, Freenet, I2P):
      What they are and how they work.
    • Criminal threats on the Dark Web:
      Who the threat actors are and what types of crimes and crime-related activities they’re involved in.
    • Types of forums (chans, markets, fringe/niche networks):
      How criminal users communicate, methods of security employed, and vulnerabilities for exploitation.
    • Dangers of operating on the Dark Web:
      What you might encounter as an investigator and how to protect yourself, your operation, and your networks.
    • Leveraging the Dark Web for law enforcement:
      How to leverage network analysis to identify ideal targets for intelligence collection or to establish confidential informants.

     

    Introduction to the Dark Web is designed for all law enforcement practitioners. Whether you’re a line officer, investigator, training instructor, crime analyst, or command staff, this course will help you and your team develop a common understanding and language for this rapidly expanding and evolving threat.

    Participants must be prepared to show their law enforcement credentials upon request.

    Note: This course is a prerequisite for “Advanced Dark Web Training”, which is designed for the professionals on your team who would actively engage with the technical aspects of combating dark web criminal activity. “Introduction to the Dark Web” provides the fundamental information needed for participants to effectively leverage the technical skills they develop in the advanced training.

    Scope:

    Participants walk away with not only an understanding of how criminals and threat actors use the Dark Web, but also how these digital footprints can be leveraged by law enforcement.

    Target Audience

    This course is appropriate for all law enforcement and public safety personnel. Whether you’re in a rural town or a major metropolitan area, you and your team will benefit from the foundational understanding and common language you will develop through this course.

    About our Experts:

    VCPI has partnered with a team of leading national experts in Dark Web data exploitation and technology who have significant experience in training federal counterintelligence special agents, law enforcement officers, and numerous DOD and Intelligence Community analysts and intelligence collectors.
