TRAINING AND EXERCISES

 
The Office of Homeland Security has developed, sponsored and delivered a number of events across the Commonwealth through which stakeholders are given the opportunity to hear and learn from subject matter experts on a range of homeland security topics.  These events include counterterrorism preparedness, cybersecurity, human trafficking, large venue and mass gathering security, school safety, special event preparedness and workplace violence.  Frequently, the office creates and hosts counterterrorism exercises in support of significant special events, which have included the Democratic National Convention, Papal Visit, Pittsburgh Marathon, USGA Men's & Women's U.S. Open and the Gettysburg 150th Anniversary celebration.
