This two-day workshop focuses on intelligence and investigative efforts in response to mass shootings and Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attacks.  Invited speakers include Incident Commanders, Special Agents, detectives, and intelligence analysts  involved in recent high-profile mass shootings and CCTA incidents (2016 Manhattan/New Jersey Bombings; Mumbai, India Terrorist Attacks; Paris Terrorist Attacks; Las Vegas Music Festival Shootings, Dorner Manhunt, and Boston Marathon Bombings)  to share their experiences, discuss the challenges they faced, and identify best practices and lessons learned from those incidents.  Their experiences and identified best practices, combined with recommendations compiled from incident after action reviews, Department of Justice publications, and Department of Homeland Security doctrine, will be used as a baseline for developing plans, synchronization matrices, training tools and the creation of technological solutions to better prepare first responders nation-wide.

  • Day 1 of the workshop will include presentations on Lessons Learned by law enforcement, intelligence officers, fusion center personnel, and analysts who were engaged in investigation and intelligence analysis in the aftermath of CCTAs and Active Shooter incidents.  Participants will hear first-hand from Incident Commanders, detectives, intelligence operatives and analysts regarding their experiences, challenges, the lessons learned in the midst and aftermath of response efforts. 
  • Day 2 of the workshop is focused on developing planning tools and techniques to address intelligence gathering and analysis concerns in organization, plans, policies, procedures, equipment, and training and exercises, and lists of recommended actions for officers and intelligence analysts to prepare for CCTAs and active shooter incidents.
