Abstract
This thesis tests the proposition that training New York State Court Officers to be first responders will add needed resources to the emergency response capabilities of the court system and state and local homeland security. New York State Court Officers have been exposed to a number of terrorists' attacks, including the latest at the World Trade Center in September 2001. In the National Strategy for Homeland Security, it notes that even best-prepared states do not have an adequate amount of resources to respond to terrorist threats. The New York State Courts can add 3,700 new certified first responders an event that occurs in what is arguably the most likely target jurisdiction. The thesis shows that the added value of these officers on a state and local level would be extremely valuable. In light of this identified need for additional trained first responders, this thesis test the proposition that training these officers to become certified first responders will enhance and improve the number of available resources to respond to terrorist incidents.
