Faith-based Communities Security Program (FBCSP)

The Rutgers Faith-Based Communities Security Program, launched in June 2014, is internationally recognized as the leading voice for protecting vulnerable communities from targeted violence and mass casualty attacks.

Focused on capacity-building among law enforcement and communities, the program has conducted threat assessments throughout Europe and the United States, with the ultimate goal of producing operational recommendations to combat extremist violence against religious, minority and other vulnerable communities, and providing training to implement such best practices.

Since its inception, the program has sponsored and hosted various events including conferences in New York City, Chicago and Washington D.C., on preventing targeted violence and mass casualty attacks and assessing intervention and off-ramp models and programs aimed at countering violent extremism.

FBCSP is generously underwritten by the Miller Family International Initiative Fund at Rutgers University.
