NCUS was recently selected to support the Department of State’s Bureau of Antiterrorism Assistance (ATA) and Bureau of Counter-terrorism (CT) in their mission of strengthening partnerships, civilian capacity, rule of law, and information sharing to prevent the spread of violent extremism. NCUS is working this effort in partnership with Linxx Global Solutions.
NCUS is delivering a comprehensive Post-Prison Release (PPR) Training Program for the Indonesian National Police (INP) Detachment 88 Antiterrorism Unit. The program, conducted in two phases, is designed to provide Indonesian-focused, specialized training for the disciplines of investigation, intelligence, and surveillance. Training will enhance the skills necessary to monitor and investigate high-risk individuals convicted of terrorism-related crimes that have been imprisoned and subsequently released into the general population.
During Phase I, an Investigative PPR Course (IPPR) is being delivered as the gateway for all training participants. In the course of training, students will be observed and evaluated to identify individual strengths and training gaps. During Phase II, INP leadership will place students into one of two specialized, follow-on training tracks – Intelligence or Investigation – for more comprehensive training. The Intelligence Track will focus on analysis techniques, surveillance methods, reconnaissance processes and intelligence management. The Investigations Track will address investigative procedures, interviewing techniques, site exploitation methods and terrorist financing.
The training program will ensure Indonesian personnel have the skills necessary to monitor and investigate high-risk individuals convicted of terrorism-related crimes, and respond effectively to this urgent public safety concern.
