One man even fell to his death from a building as he ran away from cops. Since the shooting death of police officer Randolph Holder last October, the frequency of the raids has notably increased.
On April 6-7, there was a major symposium on CVE, Countering Violent Extremism, that brought, experts, government officials, national leadership and p...
The threats we face as a nation are real, but they shouldn't be paralyzing. For too long, those like me in the security world have done much to get you worried -- ISIS, Zika, random gun violence, hurricanes, oh my . . . but not much to get you ready.
The truth is, at various times during my career, my husband David and I have needed a lot of help. A lot. Every system -- an intricate system of homeland security or intimate system of home sanity -- requires back-up plans, redundancies and a whole lot of pivoting.
