CAW Staff Attends Terrorism Liaison Officer Training
A Terrorism Liaison Officer (TLO) is any peace officer, firefighter, state investigative personnel or anyone working closely within the public safety orhomeland security community, who has been properly certified by the appropriate Regional Terrorism Threat Assessment Center (RTTAC).
The TLO originated in California based on the need for informational conduits within all public safety agencies, including federal, state, local and tribal levels, to share information with a nexus to terrorism. The TLO courses are designed to train personnel to recognize the signs of terrorism and to provide up to date relevant information regarding activities related to terrorism.
“In addition to providing the community with trained personnel to recognize the signs of terrorism, we are also enhancing our organization’s capabilities by utilizing up to date and relevant information for our exercises” Alan Jaeger said.
