Captain Arcos and Gwen Wood introduced:
Dr. Erroll Southers, author of Homegrown Violent Extremism
Professor Southers offered book signing and purchases before his power point presentation. Professor Southers holds roles throughout the international counterterrorism and national security arena. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Southern California, Sol Price School of Public Policy, where he developed the Executive Program in Counterterrorism.
South Bureau Traffic, Officer Snowden
Officer Snowden informed us that when involved in a traffic collision, you must be mindful of the towing company that you use. The towing companies that approach most accident scenes are private companies that prey on accident victims. Once your vehicle is towed by one of these companies, sometimes they demand large amounts of money before they release your vehicle. Also, the Police Department may not be able to assist if you use one of these private towing companies. Office Snowden suggests that you use AAA or a reputable towing company.
Items of discussion:
Sponsoring a needy family through the year
