Safety Unlimited offers Counter-Terrorism and Intelligence-HUMINT training courses to law enforcement, military, security, and intelligence personnel in the government, military, and private security sectors. Safety Unlimited's courses contain unique, up-to-date information on both a strategic and tactical level. Safety Unlimited also conducts risk assessment for individuals and companies located in the U.S. and around the world.
While some organizations do not have the funding to conduct this type of training, a solution that seems to work well is to include our HUMINT topics as part of other required training, such as refresher training for Police and Fire.

The Boston Marathon Bombing underscores a growing and deadly trend in the United States: "Homegrown" Violent Extremists (HVE) who are influenced and radicalized in the U.S. by foreign elements and groups utilizing the internet, social media, direct contact, and other means. In the decade since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, there have been numerous successful and disrupted "Homegrown" violent extremist terrorist attacks and plots inside our Homeland. This has become the "new face" of terrorism that we will face now, and in the future.
Our one and two day courses will help law enforcement officers, military officials, first responders, and civilian authorities to identify, recognize, and disrupt the pathway to radicalization that is THE key element in the ability of Homegrown Violent Extremists to form, radicalize, train, and carry out terrorist attacks inside the U.S.
The current threat from the Islamic State (IS) has never been greater:they are a modern-era insurgency/extremist group who have re-established the Islamic Caliphate, control large areas of territory in Iraq and Syria, possess heavy weapon systems, and are fueled by a radical Islamic ideology. The Islamic State has killed Americans and has motivated, inspired, and directed American Homegrown Violent Extremists (HVE’s) to carry out terrorist attacks in the Homeland. In addition to focusing on the threat from IS worldwide and in the U.S., we will concentrate on the real danger of the ongoing radicalization of U.S. born individuals, and how the Islamic State recruits Americans. We will provide an overview of the radicalization process inside the U.S., discuss how to recognize this process through Pre-Incident Indicators, and look at ways to counter the radicalization of individuals in the U.S. before they carry out violent activities. This 16 Hour intensive course is specifically designed for Law Enforcement professionals, First Responders, Military personnel, Terrorism Liaison Officers (TLO’s), and Private Sector professionals engaged in the security industry.
