Law Enforcement and the Community Working Together to Recognize and Prevent Threats

Global Peace Foundation and its stakeholder network prevented violent extremism by raising awareness about the behavioral indicators of mobilization towards violence. Our project achieved excellent outcomes in learning and high levels of community satisfaction on engagement and trust building activities. It also achieved systems change and addressed threats including homegrown violent extremism, active shooters, school shootings and other types of other targeted violence.
