Doormen Receive Terrorist Training

In the last year, about 6,000 doormen, superintendents and other workers at residential buildings have received four hours of training from police officers in the basics of terror-spotting, part of a nationwide trend by unions, trade groups and homeland-security agencies to beef up anti-terror defenses with citizens' brigades. A similar effort to train Chicago doormen began this year, and truck drivers, recreational boaters and school bus drivers are among the other groups signing up to keep watch.
