Module – SLP

JOINT TERRORISM TASK FORCE (JTTF), FUSION CENTERS OPERATIONS AS RELATED TO DHS

JOINT TERRORISM TASK FORCE (JTTF), FUSION CENTERS, AND DHS

General

The intent of the SLP 1-4 is for you to implement the topics and materials learnt in the course to a “real life” scenario relating to a terrorist attack on U.S. soil in a major city sports arena.

Each module’s Session Long Project builds upon the other, so you will add the modular sections within one document like chapters in a book.

You will prepare your “plan” to address your own selected city’s characteristics and capabilities (e.g., if you are from California, you can present a plan for the Staples Center Sports Arena, Dodger Stadium, or the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles; or if you are from the Oakland/San Francisco area, the 49ers’ Stadium in San Jose or The Raiders Stadium Complex in Oakland).

Follow the general scenario and additional information and updates provided in each Module.

YOU are the Emergency Manager (EM) for your City (of choice) and from this capacity and role you will address the SLP tasks.

Scenario General Description

Date – August 1, yyyy

The Threat – Intelligence agencies have intercepted (from a credible source) a terrorist organization’s communication regarding a general coordinated plan to use improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to detonate bombs at a major USA city’s sports arena during an event at an arena holding about 10,000 spectators:

Three to five suicide bombers strategically pre-position themselves around the arena. They detonate their bombs and self-destruct in order to guarantee mass panic and chaotic evacuation of the arena.

One or two large vehicle bombs (LVB) are placed in a parking facility near the entertainment complex.

Finally, expecting mass casualties, the adversary agents will detonate an additional series of devices in the lobby of the nearest hospital emergency room (ER).

Timeline – The communication states only a general timeline for the attack to be executed within the month of September. No specific date is identified.

Planning Considerations

Key Implications – Casualties (about 100 fatalities and 500 serious injuries) will result at all incident sites and will include civilians, emergency personnel, and the suicide bombers. The LVB detonation outside the venue will result in the largest number of fatalities and injuries due to the population density expected.

NOTE – Life in the city will not be disrupted and all planned public events are not to be cancelled at this time.

Module 3 SLP – JTTF + Fusion Center (FC) – Assignment (You are the City EM)

Date – August 15, yyyy

INTELLIGENCE UPDATE: Based on classified new intelligence, YOUR city has been identified as the target of the attack. The attack will occur sometime around Sept 11th.

The DHS and FBI have established a Fusion Center and JTTF respectively in your city.

Based on the above and the timeline, recheck your priority list and describe what needs to be changed/updated. When will you increase venue security and initiate security measures?

What, if anything, will you disclose to the public?

The FBI has augmented the local JTTF with additional agents and analysts, and the State Fusion Center has added staffing dedicated to collecting and analyzing intelligence for the impending attack.

What would you request from them?

Would you recommend that the centers be combined? Explain.

 

SLP Assignment Expectations

Length: This SLP should be 3-5 pages, not counting the title page and references.

References: At least two references should be included from academic sources (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles). Required readings are included. Quoted material should not exceed 10% of the total paper (since the focus of these assignments is critical thinking). Use your own words and build on the ideas of others. When material is copied verbatim from external sources, it MUST be enclosed in quotes. The references should be cited within the text and listed at the end of the assignment in the References section (preferably in APA format).

Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper according to question.

Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity.
