Domestic Extremism Trainings in the Midwest

Posted: February 13, 2009

An Anti-Defamation League expert presented to the Eastern Missouri Anti Terrorism Advisory Council (ATAC) at the Thomas Eagleton Federal Courthouse in St. Louis, Missouri.  The training was sponsored by the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri.


The presentation featured an update on extremism in the Midwest, with an emphasis on the white supremacist groups National Socialist Movement (NSM), Volksfront, and Supreme White Alliance.


Approximately 70 federal, state and local law enforcement personnel attended, representing the National Park Service Rangers, Department of Homeland Security, US Coast Guard Intelligence Operations, Missouri Information Analysis Center of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Centcom Military Command at Ft. Leonard Wood, St. Louis County Intelligence, FBI, and ATF.


An Anti-Defamation League expert also conducted an extremism training in Cleveland, Ohio. Intelligence analysts from the FBI, JTTF, Secret Service, Cuyahoga County Sherriff's Dept, and Northeast Ohio Fusion Center gathered for the presentation on hate groups, hate symbols, Ohio Klan groups, Ohio militia groups, and regional racist skinhead groups, including the Ohio State Hooligans and Supreme White Alliance.
