Preparing For and Responding To Celebratory Riots 1-Hour
The instructor will provide a detailed strategy to address the emerging national phenomenon, known as celebratory riots. Many of these events are occurring in small college towns where police have limited resources to contain the disorder. Celebratory riots combine the ingredients for a disaster: alcohol, immaturity, overzealousness, and a mob mentality. The challenge for law enforcement is not lessened simply because the softening adjective “celebratory” is in front of the word “riot.” The local police department charged with quelling such illegal behavior has no soft adjectives for failure; the situation must be professionally handled with limited resources.
