“With threats to the USA being so high, more and more are coming to Israel to find out how security could be strengthened in the USA.”
Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 10, 2010
While the world is focused on terror threats to aircraft after the bombs from Yemen, proactive members of law enforcement visited the Port of Ashdod on SSI’s 16th mission to Israel to study the way Israel has learned to deal with threats to everything from Aviation to School Security. “Although everything here is not a cut and paste to the USA, we have seen almost 400 members of the US Homeland Security community learn enough here to make substantial changes to make the USA safer," said Henry Morgenstern, The President of SSI and creator of the program. “With threats to the USA being so high, more and more are coming to Israel to find out how security could be strengthened in the USA.”
The unpatrolled access that SSI enjoys through wide-ranging connections with Israelis at every level in Homeland Security (Henry Morgenstern’s Book, Suicide Terror: Understanding and confronting the threat was recommend by the Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu http://www.suicideterror.com ) means that SSI is the only company that has sent missions to Israel this year.
The group, which represents cities that range from Ft. Lauderdale to Columbus and Tahoe and much in between, will spend about 60 intense hours learning everything from security for rail stations to Krav Maga, the Israeli art of self defense. Visiting the Israeli government buildings or getting a lecture from an expert from Ben Gurion Airport on aviation security, each participant takes home one of the most prestigious certificates available to Homeland Security professionals. The next trip is already getting sign-ups for the June 17 to June 25. Sign up now while there are still places.
