MGT-401: Planning and Intervention for Security Threat Groups, Hate, and Terrorist Groups in Rural Jails and Prisons
This eight-hour, management-level instructor-led course focuses on rural correctional facilities as unique environments for threat group recruitment and radicalization. The course examines the processes by which recruitment and radicalization occur and proposes methods for strengthening the information gathering and sharing process. Two case studies and a tabletop exercise embedded in the course are designed to emphasize to students the urgency of threat group recruitment in rural jails and prisons, to illustrate the mechanisms by which recruitment and radicalization occur, and to explore the roles of various agencies in gathering and sharing operational information. Unlike other courses that focus entirely on threat group identifiers as a means of preparing corrections personnel for intervention, this course builds knowledge around threat group categories, identifiers and philosophies, and then focus on the convergence of methodologies and the practices, policies, and conditions specific to rural correctional facilities. Additionally, this course relays the elements of deterrence, intervention, and information gathering and sharing as they pertain to the task parameters of rural corrections personnel.
