MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) - Officials at Rose State College and the Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism are planning a new series of courses in counter-terrorism at the two-year college in Midwest City.

College and institute officials announced Friday they were in the planning stages of the program, which would have to be approved by its governing board of regents.

The institute was founded after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing with a mission of enhancing public safety through “training, professional development and education.” Previously located near the bombing site in downtown Oklahoma City, the institute finished moving this week into its new location at Rose State.

The institute’s director, David Cid, says he hopes to have 10 separate courses approved that students could begin taking in the fall.
