State and Local Anti-Terrorism Training Program (SLATT)
The State and Local Anti-Terrorism Training (SLATT) Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). The SLATT Program is dedicated to providing specialized multiagency anti-terrorism detection, investigation, and interdiction training and related services at no cost to our nation's law enforcement officers, who face the challenges presented by the terrorist/violent criminal extremist threat.
Since 1996, the BJA SLATT Program has trained more than 140,000 state, local, and tribal law enforcement officers in classes designed to help recognize and prevent terrorist attacks.
The Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) serves as the technical service provider for ongoing training, research, and analysis services to the SLATT Program through the support of grant awards received from BJA. IIR supports the SLATT Program by providing project coordination activities, training assessment, and meeting coordination.
