Anti-terrorism simulation documentary wins Emmy Award

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

A documentary about the 2009 anti-terrorism simulation exercise hosted by Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis won an Emmy Award on June 18 in the category of Public/Current/Community Affairs. The show, “Tough Decisions: Defending the Homeland,” was produced and directed by WFYI TV 20, in conjunction with the law school and the School of and Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA).

The documentary, which aired several times in 2010, chronicles the minute-by-minute response as law and SPEA students role-played government and civilian officials attempting to deal with sometimes faulty or incomplete information in an unfolding terrorist attack.

Associate Professor of Law Shawn Boyne, along with SPEA professors Jim White and William Foley, planned the simulation.

The 42nd Annual Emmy Awards Gala (Lower Great Lakes Chapter) took place at the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The Emmy is an international award that recognizes excellence in the industry. It is the highest award in television.
