1. Joint Military-Civilian Domestic Threat Response Training

Following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, law enforcement agencies in cities around our nation implemented new tactics and procedures to heighten vigilance and increase readiness. One component that became vital to responding was improving interagency coordination by conducting joint training, simulating a variety of potential threats.

Using a mock hostage and domestic terrorist scenario, South Carolina first responders in Charleston County and SWAT along with the South Carolina Army National Guard and members of the Cordell Airborne Rangers at The Citadel’s Army Reserve Officers Training Corps, conducted a response event at the Moncks Corner Armory in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, April 11, 2018.
