In an exclusive interview with First Coast News, Mayor John Peyton shared his excitement over the grant announcement.
"We're an emerging City in the South. We're now the 13th largest (city) in population and the largest land mass with critical infrastructure, including our Port, Military bases, bridges and a lot of traffic passing through, so all those things, I think, really built a case for why Homeland Security should be investing in Jacksonville," said Peyton.
In response to the demand by law enforcement and other first responders for more information about the threat of Suicide Terror, SSI (Security Solutions International) sponsored by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is presenting its acclaimed one-day overview of the threat of suicide terror in Jacksonville, Florida. This training program has already been attended by over 300 different government agencies in many different cities across the country. The one-day training session for First Responders, Emergency management and Homeland Security decision makers takes place in Jacksonville in August.
Presented by Israeli experts on the subject, the training session has been widely praised by many Federal, State, and Local Law Enforcement officials that have already attended. The training session gives a background on world terrorism; explains the mind-set of different terrorist organizations, their methods and focuses on different threats: VBIED’s (Vehicle Born Improvised Explosives Devices), Buildings, and crowd events through extensive case studies. The training day showcases strategies for preventing and protecting against terror.
