Domestic Terrorism and Hate Groups/Sovereign Citizens and 1st Amendment Auditors (HS0047)

Full Description

This relevant and timely training will provide law enforcement officers with an introductory overview of numerous domestic terror groups and criminally subversive subcultures which are encountered by law enforcement professionals on a daily basis. The course will provide a definition of violent extremism and focus on identifying individuals and groups that attempt to advance social or political beliefs through force or violence.  Law enforcement professionals will be educated on the First Amendment and the Constitutional protections afforded to all groups and actions discussed. At the conclusion of the course, law enforcement professionals will be trained to identify racially and ideologically motivated behavior and discern between criminal activity and First Amendment protected speech and actions.

                This dynamic and immersive training will focus on sovereign citizens and their rapidly increasing problematic contact with all forms of government, with a specific focus on interactions with law enforcement and criminal justice personnel. Basic awareness of this growing threat and how it will directly impact the daily duties and responsibilities of law enforcement and other government entities will be discussed at length. Attendees should expect a general “indoctrination” into the sovereign citizen movement to help further awareness, recognition, and mitigation of this unconventional and bothersome problem.  Additionally, a significant portion of training will cover First Amendment Auditors, the Boogaloo Movement, III% and Militia ideology

Each student attending this class is expected to bring with them the following
