POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 101 ...continued THE STRATEGY Prevent, Detect, Deny and Respond continued... Working with International Partners Under the Prevent element, Canada will continue to coordinate its efforts with like-minded countries to stabilize fragile states and limit the conditions conducive to the development of violent extremism globally. This will include the work of DFAIT, the RCMP, CSIS, the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Forces (DND/CF) and the Canadian International Development Agency. Under the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy (2006), member states are to address the conditions conducive to the spread of terrorism by strengthening existing programs on conflict prevention, negotiation, mediation, conciliation, peacekeeping and peace building. They also emphasize initiatives that promote inter-religious and inter-cultural tolerance, reduce marginalization and promote social inclusion. DFAIT has developed projects to work with communities to counter violent extremism in regions of concern, and to promote democratic values. PURPOSE To detect the activities of individuals and organizations who may pose a terrorist threat. To counter the terrorist threat, knowledge is required on the terrorists themselves, their capabilities and the nature of their plans. It is also necessary to identify who supports their activities. Canada does this through investigation, intelligence operations and analysis, which can also lead to criminal prosecutions. Detection requires strong intelligence capacity and capabilities, as well as a solid understanding of the strategic drivers of the threat environment, and extensive collaboration and information sharing with domestic and international partners. DESIRED OUTCOMES 1. Terrorist threats are identified in a timely fashion. 2. Robust and comprehensive detection of terrorist activity and effective alerting systems are in place. 3. Information is shared effectively, appropriately and proactively within Canada, with key allies and non-traditional partners. Detect
