 Countering Violent Extremism

Training

Online SAR Line Officer Training (Registration Required)
The Suspicious Activity Reporting Line Officer Training was developed to assist law enforcement line officers in understanding what kinds of suspicious behaviors are associated with pre-incident terrorism activities, documenting and reporting suspicious activity, and protecting privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties when documenting information. This training also provides information about integrating the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI) into your agency's operations.

Training Guidance

Countering Violent Extremism Training Guidance
The Department of Homeland Security, in partnership with the National Counterterrorism Center, hosts an inter-agency working group to bring together best practices in Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) training. The group has prepared guidance for federal, state, and local government and law enforcement officials organizing CVE, cultural awareness, or counterterrorism training.
