"If You See Something, Say Something:" Why Government, Corporations and Citizens Must Team to Preempt Terror Threat"

Current and emerging threats posed by foreign and "homegrown" terrorists present an ever-evolving challenge. The awareness, vigilance, and willingness of everyday Americans to say something if they see something will continue to be invaluable to federal, state, and local efforts to expose and thwart terror operations. This fast-paced, dynamic, and entertaining seminar stresses situational awareness, a solid working relationship between authorities and the citizens they serve, and vigilance---not paranoia. Ruffini gets the brains churning and the adrenalin pumping.
