Radicalized Youth, would you be able to recognize them?

Join us in welcoming Officer's Carolyn Renaud and Aaron Bunch of the Aurora Police Department for "Recognizing the Signs of Violent Extremism"!

"Violent Extremism" refers to violence committed in the name of ideology to further a political agenda. The Aurora Police Department encountered 3 high school female students, became radicalized via the internet. This investigation prompted the Department of Homeland Security to partner with the School Resource Officers of Aurora Police Department. The end result was the creation of this presentation and ultimately the inception of the Aurora Police International Teen Academy. 

"Countering Violent Extremist Terrorism" will inform students of various extremist groups, recognize the signs of radicalization, and provide educational support for our police, schools, and community.
