Dr. Terry Oroszi is an associate professor and Vice Chair of the Pharmacology & Toxicology Department in the Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. Her subject matter expertise is Homeland Security.

Dr. Oroszi’s presentation discusses research that identifies the attributes of an American terrorist by studying the patterns within 50 demographic variables and exploring their correlation with the motivation to commit crimes related to terrorism. Such an understanding can help to halt the recruitment of American citizens by providing a profile that will quickly identify a person that is susceptible to radicalization. Not only did this research confirm previous findings, but it also expanded upon them by examining 519 US citizens convicted of crimes related to terrorism since Sept. 11, 2001. Additional characteristics collected include the location of residence, crime and imprisonment, religion, organizational alliances, race, heritage and path to citizenship, field of study and occupation, social status, military, mental health, marriage and family, conviction, punishment, and target.  Through the discussion of common traits of terrorists and social circumstances, this presentation will also offer methods for community-based curbing of radicalization.

Target Audience: Police Chiefs, Fire Chiefs, Mayors, Public Safety Professionals, Service Directors, Safety Directors, School Administrators, and anyone else with a role in emergency planning/response for their organization.

This will be a virtual presentation.  Once your registration is confirmed, you will receive a calendar invite with the link to access the presentation.
