The tragic attacks in Ottawa, New York, and Sydney are a chilling reminder that our world is changing. Terrorism, once a headline confined to Europe and the Middle East, has now landed upon our shores.
A new era is emerging in world of terrorism and the lone wolf is leading the charge. Whether it was Timothy McVeigh who murdered scores of people in the Oklahoma City bombing or Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who executed 2 New York City police officers in cold blood, these lone wolves have shown that they can be just as deadly as any state sponsored terror group. The question is who are these terrorists and what can they be stopped?
There is a common perception that nothing can be done about guard against these attacks, but that is wrong. The fact is detectives and officers on patrol don’t have to sit and wait until the next attack. By adopting a proactive response and strategy, officers can protect themselves and their communities from these homegrown attacks. But it takes knowledge. It takes training.
