Briefings on Extremism

Briefings on Extremism and Terrorism

Through identifying, exposing and disrupting hate crimes and extremist activity, ADL’s Center on Extremism (COE) leads this training to provide law enforcement with a comprehensive understanding of:

  • What motivates extremists and how they communicate.
  • How to respond to emerging threats from across the ideological spectrum.
  • How to track rapidly evolving terror tactics online and on the ground.
