North Attleboro, MA (PressExposure) December 11, 2008 -- Law Enforcement Security Consulting (LESC), headquartered in North Attleboro and serving communities, institutions and private enterprise throughout New England, has recently established a Homeland Security Division.
All programs are led by Fred T. Leland, the companyâs director who is also an active Lieutenant with the Walpole Police Department and a former U.S. Marine with more than 28 years of experience teaching law enforcement and security professionals. His article âRecognizing the Signs and Signals of Crime and Dangerâ was recently published in Homeland Security Report 188, which is an information source for law enforcement, intelligence, security and emergency management personnel.
The new division is designed specifically to train law enforcement and security professionals to identify threats and develop strategies and tactics needed to detect, prevent, avoid, defuse and resolve conflict with regard to Homeland Security. Trainees learn to recognize the signs and signals of crime and danger as well as the appropriate response and action to take.
Among the programs offered through the Homeland Security division are:
Threat Assessment, which utilizes the Boyd Cycle to teach risk assessment along with how to use observation, orientation, decision and action to minimize risk.
Terrorism Awareness trains law enforcement and security personnel how to recognize indicators of terrorism and criminal extremism; gather meaningful intelligence and how to follow-up.
Response to Suicide and/or Terrorist Bombings trains personnel in the warning signs/key indicators of an impending attack as well as the proper and safe steps to minimize injuries and fatalities.
Critical Incident Management teaches all about the Incident Command System to improve tactical response to emergencies.
Use of Force teaches how to control rapidly-changing circumstances during a threatening encounter through the effective application of force.
âOur primary focus is on developing law enforcement and security personnelâs situational awareness, threat assessment and decision making abilities under pressure. It is imperative that they know how to identify, control and defuse violent or dangerous situations,â noted Leland.
LESC is contracted by private security companies as well as the Federal Protective Service, Department of Homeland Security.
