Presentation: Critical Infrastructure Protection & Asset Protection Response
Speaker: Paul Thilges
The KCTEW's Interagency Analysis Center collects information from a variety of sources. This data is evaluated and analyzed in an effort to identify potential trends or patterns of terrorist or criminal operations within the region. One of the many response "tools" available to the Center in the event of a critical incident is the Asset Protection and Response System (APRS). The APRS program originally was created to develop a pre-planned, rapid, law enforcement response to school violence situations. After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, local officials realized that the methods used to collect data and information for schools could easily be adapted to pre-plan emergency responses for other critical sites, infrastructure, and key resources which are considered potential terrorist targets within the Greater Kansas City region.
APRS aids public safety agencies in developing a pre-planned emergency response, using an "all-hazards" approach. Collected data might include photographs, maps, contact information and other data from critical sites in your community.
Join us to learn more about the KCTEW and how APRS can assist your organization in emergency preparedness and response.
