On 9 November 2022, Dr. John P. Sullivan, an associate with C/O Futures, LLC, guest lectured in a criminal justice seminar on terrorism. His multi-hour lecture was on "Terrorism Early Warning." The well received lecture provided information on Emerging Threats, Future Conflict, Post Modern Terrorism, TEW 'Elements,' Net Assessment Cells, TEW Processes and Organization, Intelligence Preparation for Operations (IPO), the Transaction Analysis Model and Analysis Cycle, and related subject matter. His lecture provided the criminal justice students in the terrorism seminar a glimpse into a cutting edge real world (applied) counter-terrorism program initially developed in Los Angeles county in the mid-1990s. The TEW concept later expanded nationally and went on to heavily influence the DHS fusion centers that were later established across the United States post-9/11.
