CLOSED: LE ONLY – Armed Protesters: Challenges in an Evolving Environment

This event has ended

Forty-four states permit open carry of long guns while 31 allow open carry of handguns. Protesters have been carrying weapons for a multitude of professed reasons, from their membership in a militia or pro-gun rights group to self-defense concerns or a desire to defend – or intimidate – others in often highly charged or confrontational environments. This webinar explored the evolving armed protest environment for the benefit of our law enforcement audience, examined armed protesters’ actions and challenges for police from a behavioral science perspective, then discussed infrastructure security as the country potentially faces another heated protest summer.
