The continuous threat of terrorism has thrust domestic preparedness obligations to the very top of the law enforcement agenda. The capacity to assess and manage risk must be considered a staple of law enforcement operations. The consequences of failing to assess and manage terrorist threats and risk could be incalculable. This document outlines the essential components of risk assessment and management, which entail the following sequential tasks: Critical infrastructure and key asset inventory; Criticality assessment; Threat assessment; Vulnerability assessment; Risk calculation; Countermeasure identification. Risk assessment and management concepts and methodologies are evolving rapidly. Although models differ in the definition, labeling, and sequencing of steps, there is solid consensus on the essential components. In this monograph, each component is defined and briefly examined. Protocols are supplied to quantify/calculate criticality, threat, vulnerability, and risk. Experience and skill with risk assessment and management are limited in many law enforcement agencies. To assist in reversing this situation, this report supplies capacity building information that includes promising programs, software, and training references. Capacity “acquisition” through shared/ regional arrangements is not only economically practical for many agencies, it promises to leverage effectiveness for all agencies by pooling and coordinating information and planning joint countermeasures.
