The Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism was born out of the tragedy of the Murrah bombing in 1995. It was the intention of the survivors and family members of the victims to create an institution that would look forward and help prevent future terrorism.
The Institute has a long history of innovation and accomplishment, beginning with three knowledge bases, one of which, the Lessons Learned Information Sharing knowledge base, is the United States governments official repository for lessons learned. Hard science research sponsored by the Institute created an explosive detection device being used by our soldiers around the world.
In 2008, the Department of Homeland Security challenged us to become a training center. Our signature law enforcement training program, InCOP, has been embraced by over 450 agencies nationally, to include the New York City Police Department.
We are currently creating a series of college courses in counter-terrorism that will ultimately, with the approval of the regents, become a degree path in the criminal justice program.
We are proud to be associated with Rose State College and see our future together and with mutual benefits and opportunities.
