Fairfield University Security Department hosts terrorism awareness workshop for police officers


Fairfield University's Security Department, in cooperation with the Connecticut Police Chiefs Association, will host a terrorism awareness workshop for law enforcement officers on Wednesday, February 26, on the Fairfield campus.

The presenter will be Michael Scully, a special agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from Providence, R.I. According to Fairfield University Director of Security Todd Pelazza, the workshop is designed for front-line patrol officers and will include insights into the Islamic culture as well as information on what officers should look for as part of their terrorism work. Pelazza said sponsors will be taping the workshop with the hope of distributing it to police departments throughout the state of Connecticut.

The workshop, which will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the multimedia room of DiMenna-Nyselius Library, is certified by the State Police Academy and those attending will receive certificates of credit for the program.
