Description

The Commercial Vehicle Counterterrorism Training Program (CVCTP) is designed to train law enforcement officers on terrorist trends as they relate to commercial vehicles and how these vehicles are used to commit acts of terrorism, either as a weapon of mass destruction or through transportation of materials to further the cause of terrorist organizations. The CVCTP is unique in its design, recognizing that security of our highways and transportation infrastructure is accomplished by a cooperative effort of federal, state, and local law enforcement officers. This program is delivered with the assistance of the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO). This program is available as an export.
