A-T Solutions is dedicated to enhancing the nation's ability to detect, deter, protect against, and respond to terrorist attacks. This workshop is designed to enhance the counter-terrorism (CT) effectiveness of police officers by providing instruction on the key elements of noncoercive, operational human intelligence (HUMINT) techniques. The effective recruitment and subsequent handling of appropriate confidential human sources provides police departments with suitable CT intelligence that is vital to the security of the United States. The workshop illustrates a professional and methodical approach to the process of confidential human source (CHS) identification, cultivation, recruitment, and subsequent handling. The use of these HUMINT recruitment and handling techniques will improve police officers' ability to effectively contribute to the defense of their local communities against terrorism and can also be employed by police against other criminal targets.
