Particular emphasis is placed on the movement of physical goods, movement of financial resources, patterns of movement of these items and the individuals supporting them that might indicate a threat to homeland security. An overview of government laws and regulations serve as a foundation for this course. Scenarios are used to demonstrate concepts and to facilitate learning.
