Detecting Domestic and Homegrown Violent Extremism is an awareness-level course that explores violent extremism in the United States. By the end of the course, participants will be able to distinguish indicators of extremist violence from activities that are legally protected, while maintaining community and responder safety. This course describes the radicalization and recruitment process and the tactics that extremists use to carry out their missions. Participants will consider their own jurisdiction's baseline activity and how activity outside of baseline patterns could indicate extremist activity. Criminal predicate exists when there are facts to support a reasonable possibility that an individual or organization is involved in a definable criminal activity. Some indicators of extremism could be constitutionally protected, including speech, expression, and actions. Responders must be aware of and actively seek to protect these rights while protecting themselves and the communities they serve. Participants will explore several approaches to responder safety: tactics, coordination across response disciplines, online security, and resources to support mental health. Communication across response agencies strengthens prevention and response efforts. Additionally, communication and outreach between responders and the communities they serve builds trust that can help law enforcement gather information that could prevent attacks and make communities less susceptible to extremist attacks.
