Overview

Catastrophe Preparation and Prevention for Law Enforcement is a multi-media product for Homeland Security designed for law enforcement personnel. This spiral-bound worktext contains a link to an online simulation game called “San Luis Rey” and a CD-ROM containing selected government documents and excerpts from McGraw-Hill reference texts. Instructors can use the wealth of material in the CD-ROM to adjust the length of the course. It can be taught in a single day or two-day course or expanded into a full semester. The worktext guides the student through the material and links the learning experience from the different formats.

The simulation-based program is sponsored by the Office for Domestic Preparedness and Department of Homeland Security to build a common, minimum level of preparedness among the nation’s first responders and related homeland security professions in fulfilling the National Homeland Security Strategy. Its goal is to support the ability of every jurisdiction in the United States to 1) develop capacity in preventing terrorism, 2) demonstrate coherence with a common standard of practice in prevention of terrorism; and 3) ensure that every jurisdiction has a basic ability to recognize crucial links between prevention, response, and recovery.
