CJ 260.

Course Description

This course introduces and explains how the use of weapons of mass destruction by terrorists and rogue states could give them attack advantages over military, local, and federal law enforcement agencies. Today's danger of weapons of mass destruction comes mostly from the possible use of nuclear, biological, or chemical (NBC) weapons. In this course, students examine "how to respond to" and "how to deal with" NBC attacks. The course distinguishes facts from falsehoods about NBC weaponry.
