Global Terrorism…How safe are we in Los Angeles? That was the question posed to law enforcement officials on a panel on counterterrorism, represented by the Airport Police from LAX (Los Angeles World Airports), the Department of Homeland Security Intelligence Office, the Sheriff of Los Angeles County and the Department of Homeland Security National Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorist Events (CREATE).
Experts discussed the rise of homegrown violent extremism, the various ways in which people are self radicalizing, what to look out for as citizens and what our various law enforcement agencies are doing to prepare and plan for potential terrorist events in the greater Los Angeles region. The special briefing event was hosted by the Southern California Leadership Network (a program of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce) and was moderated by The Hetty Group’s Florence Chung.
The Hetty Group is continuing to engage the community with law enforcement to foster collaboration, information sharing, trust and partnership.
