Communities Against Terrorism (CAT)
The Communities Against Terrorism initiative is funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) through the SLATT Program to provide law enforcement agencies with a tool to engage members of the local community in the fight against terrorism. This program provides industry-specific information on activities that may be associated with the planning and preparation of a terrorist attack. By providing information about potential terror indicators to businesses, law enforcement agencies enhance their ability to prevent acts of terror. To assist law enforcement in the outreach effort, templates of flyers containing potential indicators have been created for distribution to specific industries.
The Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) serves as the technical service provider for ongoing training, research, and analysis services to the CAT initiative through the support of grant awards received from BJA. IIR supports the CAT initiative by providing project coordination activities, training assessment, and meeting coordination.
