Under the leadership and vision of CPS, CTVAC (Countering Targeted Violence Against our Communities) materialized from concept to initial delivery in less than 18 months. This combined initiative was praised in national forums as the national model for state and local 'countering violence' efforts and was formally adopted by the International Association of Chief's of Police as one of its capstone training initiatives.
The program includes an expansive strategic community engagement initiative with a media-rich curriculum and training focused on addressing acts of targeted violence including mass casualty attacks. This program is considered unprecedented as it is one of the first that addresses violent extremism as a broad community approach.
CPS is currently working with members of the US Helsinki Commission which is responsible for monitoring human rights, democracy and economic environmental initiatives within the European and OSCE region.
CPS provides strategic advisory and management consulting support to the Rutgers Police Institute's Faith-Based Communities Security Program, an initiative internationally recognized as the leading voice for protecting vulnerbale communitites from targeted violence and mass casualty attacks.
In support of this, CPS is working with Europol, the EU, OSCE, IACP and others to convene a global summit at The Hague focusing on countering targeted violence and extremism.
