With the growing threat from homegrown terrorists, our state and local law enforcement entities will need to have the proper training, personnel, and tools to monitor, detect, and thwart potential attacks. Similarly, with the federalization of preparedness and disaster response over the last two decades, state and local governments face growing gaps in capabilities needed to handle events that occur within their jurisdictions. Join us as our panelists examine the reforms needed within counterterrorism, preparedness, and disaster response to ensure that states and localities are properly positioned for the future.
