-- Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office and the local Businesses of Palm Beach County are on the look out for any Terrorist activities in the area. Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, backed by the Homeland Security Bureau, has initialized the Businesses Partner Against Terrorism or BPAT for short.
This program teams local businesses with law enforcement to utilize their expertise in recognizing unusual activity within their fields. Derived from the reality that 85 percent of America's infrastructure is owned and/or operated by the private sector, this initiative divides the county's private sectors into nine councils to develop a close, two-way partnership between the Sheriff's Office and the private sector.
The impetus for the initiative and the choice of sectors are drawn from materials developed by the United States Department of Homeland Security in an effort to be one of the most comprehensive anti-terrorist programs in the nation.
