GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (March 4, 2015) – U.S. Army Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Keith Dayton, director of the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies, welcomes 72 participants from 54 countries Feb. 25 at the Marshall Center here.

The #PTSS_15-03 started Feb. 25 and will end with a graduation ceremony March 25 at the Marshall Center. In the first week, participants have learned What is Terrorism: Definitions and Terms, Terrorist Motivations and Ideology, Terrorist Strategy and Tactics, Building Combating Terrorism Strategy and Crime Terror Nexus.

The PTSS course addresses numerous aspects of a threat that confronts nations around the globe. The four-week course is designed for government officials, military officers and police administrators currently working in mid- and upper- level management positions of counterterrorism organizations throughout the world.

The mission of the Marshall Center, as a vital instrument of German-American cooperation, is to create a more stable security environment by advancing democratic institutions and relationships; promoting active, peaceful, whole-of-government approaches to address transnational and regional security challenges; and creating and enhancing enduring partnerships worldwide.
