HOMELAND SECURITY DEFENSE COALITION

Homeland Security University College project

Professional Development and Continuing Education Programs

The Homeland Security Defense Coalition now brings our professional development and continuing education programs to you. Our seminars are available in one day, two day or five day programs. HSDC will customize courses to meet your governmental, municipal or company needs.

Why are HSDC seminars considered "cutting edge" in Homeland Security training and education?

The HSDC programs have been developed after three years of research, planning and development by counterterrorism professionals. Our programs are proactive rather than reactive, like typical public safety training programs. HSDC uses counterterrorism experts who have been the field and bring "real world" experience to the learning process.

Homeland Security seminars provided by HSDC are not the same old criminal justice, fire science and military courses you are used to. Please do not confuse our programs with courses offered by your state emergency training centers. Although you will see similarly titled courses, our courses and seminars will update you on homeland security related issues and concerns and better prepare you for this new national threat.

TERRORISM AND FIRST RESPONDER SEMINAR:

Presented by: Major Dave Kutcher, Isreali Police (Ret.)
and Commander Daniel Sharon, Israeli Police (Ret.)


Introduction:

The first person to intercept or meet a terrorist/suicide bomber, whether they are a police officer or security officer is considered in the Israeli experience to be "The First Responder" and that person must decide to act on the spot with no thought to liability. Only that person can decide the outcome of the incident and prevent it from being a disaster.

Until recently the definition of a "First Responder" was the first person to arrive at an incident. That would be correct terminology if we were dealing with a burglary, road accident, theft, or a domestic dispute between married couples.

Since the arrival of terrorism or suicide terrorism, operational behavior in Law enforcement and security changed that entire concept.

A terrorist is not going to wait around for a tactical unit, SWAT team, or the cavalry to arrive. They are going to blow up that location unless you neutralize them first.

Seminar Goals:

The program is designed to equip the patrol police officer, security officer and all security personnel with the necessary knowledge and training to be an active first responder in any terror related incident that he or she may encounter.

The instructors will give the audience all the necessary training to act with split second timing and on the spot reactions to prevent a terror incident from taking place at any given place, whether it maybe an airport, seaport, shopping mall, school, university, place of worship, train or bus station, petro/chemical plant, hotels, or any public institution.

The audience will see how to become an active first responder by using Advanced Body Language Training (360 Degree BL ID).

What will I gain from the seminar?

  • You will learn and be able to see danger from a distance and analyze the situation immediately.
  • You will learn and use 360 degree BL identification training with pinpoint accuracy.
  • You will learn and use 360 degree BL from head to toe within split seconds of the encounter.
  • Your reaction time to a situation will speed up.
  • You will be able overcome past fears of making mistakes.
  • Your confidence will be increased ten fold.
  • You will be able to give an appropriate answer to any give dangerous situation.

Homeland Security Defense Coalition
Prevention of Shopping Center and Shopping Mall Shootings and Bombings Seminar

A 1 Day Seminar Training program to prevent mass homicide incidents at shopping centers and public places.

Objectives:
The course is targeted to a specific audience of police officers and security officers as one entity, to work in concert in preventive security to be able to identify threats before they become realities The course is based on Israeli Experience and Expertise in foiling suicide attacks at malls throughout Israel.

Introduction:
What does it take to wake up the shopping center and shopping mall security in the world today?

Another Virginia Tech Massacre! Beslan School Killings, Finnish School Killings, Omaha, Nebraska Shopping Mall Killings, where a deranged man walks into a crowded mall with an assault rifle and murders 8 people innocently shopping and wounding others.

Police and security may ask themselves, how did it happen? The answers to prevent random violence are covered in this seminar.

The facts of just one incident:
A man with a rifle opened fire at a busy Omaha shopping mall on Dec 5th, killing eight people before taking his own life, police said. Five others were wounded, two critically.

The killer was identified as Robert A. Hawkins, age 20, who left a suicide note stating, "I'm going out in style" and "I'm going to be famous." The man's vehicle was reportedly found in the parking lot.

Officials said Hawkins, clad in military-style clothing, entered the mall just before 2 p.m. Wednesday and began firing off rounds. The rampage sent shoppers and employees running and screaming through the West roads Mall, barricading themselves in dressing rooms after hearing gunfire. Hawkins was found dead on the third floor of the Von Maur store with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and his victims were discovered on the second and third floors, police said.

The Friday before the incident, a live hand grenade was found in the mall car parking lot!!

There is only one way to prevent incidents such as this from happening in the future and that is to adopt "Israeli Preventive Security" at the shopping malls. Since the Intifada in 2000 in Israel we had to find ways of preventing Suicide Bombers and Terrorist Shooters from entering our shopping malls and public places... WE SUCCEEDED!!

Media Under Fire, Reporters/TV Crews Survival Seminar'

A 2 day Survival Training Seminar

Introduction:
The Media and the "Suicide Bomber Threats" in War Zones. The 20th/21st centuries have brought the realities of the suicide bombers in war zones to the reporters and TV crews covering the news in very dangerous conditions. The volatile areas from the Middle East to Afghanistan and Pakistan have brought the need to protect the media operating in these areas.

The media are unprotected, unarmed and are vulnerable to the attacks of suicide bombers and radical terrorist groups that are part of daily life. These groups terrorize the local populations and the coalition troops of the western nations policing the danger zones such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

I have developed a 2 day seminar to examine the ways that the media can be protected to a certain level of safety, while operating in such areas.

The seminar will also show how to take precautions not to get hurt in these areas, preventive personal security in countering the bomber threats.

The seminar will also show how to travel in danger areas in cars as part of a convoy with the military forces, travelling on open roads, and in urban areas.

The seminar will also show "What to do and what not to do in such areas". The course will also give you all the necessary tips to stay alive and survive.

The seminar is based on media's experiences while gathering news in the Palestinian controlled areas, and Lebanon, which are similar conditions to Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

What will I Learn from the 'Media under Fire, Reporters/TV Crews Survival Seminar'

  • The Israeli experience of suicide terrorism
  • The Israeli expertise in dealing with the bombers

Preventing Work-Place Violence Before it Happens:

Workplace violence may occur in any type of working environment. Recent events involving disgruntled employees, visitors and upset customers include post offices; office buildings; municipal buildings; insurance companies; colleges; universities; even high schools such as the Columbine tragedy. All other programs nationwide focus on planning for dealing with workplace violence after it has occurred. Designed by two licensed psychologists, the Homeland Security Defense Coalition two-day seminar focuses on preventing workplace violence before it occurs.

This two-day seminar addresses:

  • Pre-employment screening
  • Recognizing potentially violent behavior
  • Taking overt and covert threats seriously
  • Interviewing potentially violent employees
  • Defusing potentially violent employees
  • Designing a proactive policy for workplace violence

 

PREVENTING WORKPLACE VIOLENCE BEFORE IT HAPPENS:

This seminar is like no other you have ever attended. If you think you have taken another Workplace Violence course and do not need our seminar, think again. Our Prevention of Workplace Violence seminar will provide you with the tools necessary to identify potential Workplace Violence Before it Happens. Other programs are geared towards what we call; "clean-up after the fact." Our seminars are focused on preventing workplace violence.

This is the first and only seminar of its kind to take a holistic, interactive, and scientific approach to workplace violence. Only by understanding the multiple and interactive causes of violence (as validated by science) as they interact can one hope to be proactive in prevention. You may have already taken a workshop in anger management, conflict resolution, or even workplace violence. This workshop is significantly different from any other in its content, format, and quality of presenters. Not only are the Instructors active scientists but award winning, motivational and entertaining presenters. This workshop is designed to teach managers and supervisors how to be proactive in preventing workplace violence. Understanding the complex causes and contributors to workplace violence is key to prevention. In this session, attendees will learn that while violence is often a result of rising conflict, there are many other factors that can contribute to and prompt a crisis in the workplace. By understanding all facets of workplace violence, attendees will better prepare themselves to proactively lead their company in the prevention of workplace violence.


Prevention and Detection of Potential School Violence Seminar

 The Homeland Security Defense Coalition is proud to offer our Prevention of School Violence Seminar. This seminar is geared towards preventing violence in the college, university, middle school, high schools, both public and private occupational and vocational schools.

 This two-day seminar addresses:

  • Pre-enrollment student screening
  • Recognizing potentially violent school behavior
  • Taking overt and covert threats seriously
  • Interviewing potentially violent students or employees
  • Defusing potentially violent students or employees
  • Designing a proactive policy for student, employee and visitor violence

The prevention of another Virginia Tech shooting is necessary through training at all country college, university, high schools and middle schools. This means taking hard- core prevention steps, not dealing with the aftermath of another school shooting by providing crisis counseling after the fact.  This may be accomplished by taking covert and overt threats seriously. By upgrading your potentially antiquated security systems and reviewing security systems, protocol and procedures annually at a minimum.

Gunman kills 32 in Virginia Tech Rampage BLACKSBURG, Va. - A gunman massacred 32 people at Virginia Tech in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history Monday, cutting down his victims in two attacks two hours and a half-mile apart before the university could figure out what was going on and get the warning out to students.

School violence requires that we focus our Prevention of School Violence Seminar on that violence that occurs at our colleges, universities, high schools and even the Amish school shooting of October 3rd. 2006.
