San Joaquin College of Law is pleased to announce it will be hosting an Agroterrorism Preparedness Program on Wednesday, February 19th, 2014. The Agroterrorism Preparedness Curriculum for Frontline Responders is a program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in partnership with the Western Institute for Food Safety and Security at the University of California, Davis.

This day-long program is free of charge, open to the public, and will include two instructor-led courses: Understanding the Dangers of Agroterrorism (AWR 151) and Principles of Agroterrorism Detection and Diagnosis (AWR 153). Individuals from a variety of professional sectors are welcome, including, but not limited to, legal, public safety, political, environmental and agricultural. Participants will receive a certificate for completing the program and certain professional fields may be eligible for continuing education credit.

Through this program local and regional stakeholders are provided with an awareness of the potential targets and impacts of agroterrorsim and how effective pre-planning within a community can mitigate acts of agroterrorism. It also provides strategies to increase detection and diagnosis efficiency, as well as the epidemiological and criminal investigation process.

Seating for this program is limited so early registration is recommended to secure your seat.
