Cape Canaveral, FL -- (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE via PRNetwire) -- August 7, 2002 -- Nick Iltsopoulos, Florida Director for the International Association For Counterterrorism and Security Professionals announced today that the organization will be hosting a symposium on September 16 & 17th at the Radisson Resort in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
The ICASP was founded in 1992 to meet security challenges facing the world as it enters an era of globalization into the 21st century. We believe that all elements of the world's societies must become better educated about the threats of terrorism as a first step toward developing innovative and effective countermeasures to combat these ongoing threats. The IACSP is founded on the principle that a better-informed society will result in a freer one.
The symposium will feature a number of speakers including Inspector Thomas Graham from the N.Y.P.D. Civil Disorder Unit, Jamie Smith Vice President of Operations of Blackwater Training Center; Dr Randy Borum from the University of South Florida; Col. (Ret) D. Dickerson who served in the 519th Intel Battalion; Chief (Ret.) Steve Bronson, a veteran of U.S. Navy Special Warfare Unit and Tom Rothrauff Jr. a twenty-year veteran of the Navy SEALS.
Jason McLendon from the Community Anti-Terrorism Training Institute will be certifying attendees as trainers for its program, one that was developed to assist local communities to fight terrorism. This program involves the joint efforts of law enforcement and the community. It is designed to educate the general public about terrorism, how to detect and report suspected targets, and how to develop a anti-terrorism block watch program. The information to be presented will include ways to enhance neighborhood security, heightens the community's power of observation, and encourages mutual assistance and concern among neighbors.
This event is restricted to law enforcement, government and security professionals. Registration must be completed by August 30, 2002 and the fee is $299.
