Risk Control Strategies to field terrorist response team
New York City-based Risk Control Strategies, which characterizes itself as a privately held threat management, investigative and security consulting firm, is launching the Terrorist Response Team (TRT), its newest division.
The TRT includes personnel from the FBI, military and other governmental law enforcement agencies, as well as instructors who currently provide training both nationally and internationally in post-blast investigation, suicide terrorism, explosive ordnance disposal, military special operations, and current terrorist trends, tactics and technology, the company says in a statement.
“I believe we have assembled some of the finest and most experienced counterterrorism experts in the world,” Douglas Kane, president of RCS and a former team leader for the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team, said in the statement. “Major corporations need to ensure preparation and planning is being conducted prior to another attack and a firm has been identified with proven professionals to rely upon for these specialized services.”
The terrorist threat is “fueled by hatred for Christians and Jews, and religious extremism which defines success by the number of American deaths they cause and the amount of financial impact they have on our economy,” the company’s statement observes, adding that “as we move into the embryonic stages of a holy war we have zero margin for error in preparing to defend our culture on American soil.”
“The mantra is simple, we love our country and will not accept a wait and see role,” RCS CEO Paul Viollis said in the statement.
