As a kid Ben always wanted to be a teacher, but when he became a junior and senior he could see people in his class getting into bad things like alcohol and drugs. When he saw those kids he wanted to help and that's when he thought he would join some sort of law enforcement to have a chance to help those kids that are going down the wrong path. Later after high school he went to college at Alexandria tech for two years but later found out that his credits would not transfer to get a four year and higher so he went to CLC for two years and then transferred to St. Cloud for his four year and then later on to get his masters. After that he went to a police office to work in his area and started his fto training. Ben said that there are a lot of changes but the biggest is technology.
My current position as an Area Commander for the Federal Protective Service (FPS) is not without its challenges. I am responsible for supervising eleven federal law enforcement officers to include two K9 units and approximately forty-five contracted protective security officers. As a team we address security related issues on a daily basis. Our position description encompasses two major disciplines; the first is federal law enforcement and the second physical security. Both occupations can be viewed as one, yet separate in their ever changing complexity of development. The greatest challenges are staying up with the constant progression of technical advances in the way each vital role is implemented. Combining two occupations into one job description can at times be overwhelming.

I will use my organization, the Knoxville Police Department, for this exercise and analyze how it selects, gathers, analyzes, manages and improves its data, information and knowledge assets for homeland security. Fisher (2015) said that a good leader is one who gets involved in homeland security and other important issues themselves without outsourcing or passing the task to someone lower. Chief David Rausch, of the Knoxville Police Department, is that type of leader. He cares very much about the community and homeland security and has made sure his agency is being proactive with information gathering, analyzing, and sharing.

Being able to understand people from all walks of life, and being able to offer solutions is one of the most important aspects of being a successful officer. With police work comes plenty of paperwork, the data I handled at the NHC showed me how to manage plenty of applications and how important it was to keep it updated and accurate, for the benefit of the clients and yourself. I was constantly handling many different names, addresses, dates, and phone numbers, all of which I had to input electronically at a steady pace. Being a police officer, I would have to correctly input data firsthand and be able to use that data later on in court, or for various other reasons. At the NHC I also realised that not every interaction is going to be successful and most take time to reach their desired goal. Being able to help clients through tough times is a very hard thing to do when there are so many, but when there is a full support team behind the Vista and thus the client, all pushing for the same goal, it takes some of the ease off of those affected. Truly working as a team can make any procedure more efficient and ease the overall

The integration of jobs tasks, under systems such as the Law Enforcement Technology Group (LETG), is allowing first responders to more effectively coordinate with each other. This is helping to streamline their ability to communicate and quickly deal with a variety of situations. However, despite the positive transformations, everyone is being forced to make adjustments.

Line-level law enforcement officers, investigators supervisors, and police executives are more educated and sophisticated with technology in their arsenal to enhance job performance. Despite having better education, training, equipment, access to specialized resources, and information, law enforcement agencies struggle with sharing power with their workforce. The result of this failure to modernize leaves law enforcement officers going through the motions and working at less than maximum efficiency.
