The Chief Operations Officer (COO) and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) are the responsible individuals, which must make the appropriate decisions in order to protect the company’s wealth. As the COO, responsibilities include supervision of the three different product lines that
The idea of securing the nation’s borders and securing the safety of the citizens has been a major topic since the beginning of the nation’s existence. There have always been means and procedures for it but it was never defined to the point it is today. The Homeland Security Department is a fairly new program which is constantly improving and adjusting in accordance to the threats that may arise. In the attempt to secure the United States, homeland security has become paramount and a lot of emphasis is being provided so as to ensure the safety of the borders and the citizens of the United States. So one must ponder what the difference between homeland security and homeland defense are since they both tend to mean the same

In taking command of an organization, the commander needs to understand how the entire organization works; the synergistic effect of all its parts. Unlike the staff officer who may focus on the part of a problem relevant to his/her function and the efficiency of his/her section, the commander must have a holistic perception of the issue. The commander’s thinking must now shift more focus to the conceptual level of
Before 9/11, law enforcement possessed the primary responsibility for combating terrorism in the United States. Law enforcement relationships and responsibilities have continued to be evaluated and redefined at all levels of government. They will evolve because of the continuous changing nature of terrorist threats, prevention needs and transforming operations and strategies. Terrorist groups continue to advance and pose threats in new ways each day. In the fourteen years since the worst terrorist attack on United States territory, citizens have undoubtedly become more cautious and accustomed to the inconveniences that result from the precautions and added security law enforcement agencies are now having to provide.
Command and control could be used to exercise authority and directions by a fully designated commander over assigned and attached forces in the achievement of a task. Command and control functions are performed through an arrangement of personnel, equipment, communication, facilities, and procedures employed by a commander in planning, directing, coordinating, and controlling forces and operations in the accomplishment of the mission. This is important so that the team would know who is in command and also so that the commander shows his authority within the team and that they all are able to work together as a team. A example of command and control being used in a good way is how the public services controlled the situation at the time of the London bombings in July 05. The uniformed public services were able to get everything under control and were able to sort the situation out together. ...read
Surveillance and biopolitical governance are terms usually associated with the internal surveillance methods of the United States, especially in light of the Snowden NSA leaks. However, Canada has developed an elusive biopolitical national security policy that has both social and political consequences. In April 2004, the Canada’s federal government introduced its first national security legislation, Securing an Open Society: Canada’s National Security Policy (Bell 147). Discussions surrounding a national security agenda has expanded rapidly since the tragic events of 9/11. Canada has quoted $690 million in national security policy and strategy however, this only reflects a portion of the actual total amount of money put towards security and
When using force, private security personnel are high risk for criminal and civil prosecution. The use of deadly force must be limited to clear and present dangers to the life of the security officer. Even when tasked with guarding highly valuable property, the use of deadly force is not appropriate in all situations. In many cases, it will be the poorly trained or overly zealous security officer that ends up being charged with a crime (Satchell, 2017).
The span of control will be better monitored and more accountability. The Patrol Lieutenant will supervise the Patrol Sergeants and Specialized unit Sergeants.

The administrative Sergeant will supervise all support services employees to list a few, Records, Property, and Communications.

When it comes to provincial law enforcement, it varies on the population density and geography of the province. All but two of Canada’s provinces contract out their provincial law-enforcement responsibilities to the RCMP/GRC because there are not enough people within that area to warrant their own municipal police force. Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland maintain their own provincial police forces which are the Ontario Provincial Police, Sûreté du Québec (Quebec Provincial Police) and Royal Newfoundland Constabulary. Smaller municipalities often contract police service from the provincial policing authority. Newfoundland's provincial police force is only responsible for the province's larger urban areas (St. John's, Corner Brook and Labrador
Imagine a world where you are being watched by the government all the time. This sounds similar to the classical dystopian novel 1984, where Big Brother invades the private lives of its citizens including, the protagonist, Winston. Even though our society is not as invasive we have our own big brother, the NSA. Although it protects U.S. national security, the government should discontinue the surveillance done by the NSA because it is detrimental the U.S. economy the Constitution and the citizens of the U.S.
Over the past couple years there has been an ever increasing amount of reports against police using excessive force when the situation does not call for it. Every time a case like this happens hundreds if not thousands of dollars are wasted to correct the situation. This is due to the conflicting statements between eyewitnesses and law enforcement officers. Forensic investigations are needed to understand what most likely occurred. When we are little we were told to always trust police officers because they are there to look out for us, but not every police officer has that same idea. The officers are people and people are flawed by nature but we hold them to a higher standard and that their word is worth more than the average citizen in a court of law. This leads to officers being considered correct until valid conflicting evidence is introduced where the officer is shown in the wrong. Thankfully modern advances in technology, specifically smart phones, are causing new evidence to be provided to be in video format more often. Body cameras are one of the proposed solutions to help solve this ongoing conflict due to their easy implementation but the cameras have hidden costs that are not immediately thought of. Overall the cost of using cameras is outweighed by the social benefits gained from implementing them.
Hostage and barricaded situations may require the use of special weapons and the SWAT teams. The SWAT teams are not needed as much but only for executing search warrants. It is very expensive to provide for the SWAT teams and it is very devastating when they make a mistake during a situation. However, I think that this agency should be kept for the safety of the public. I have probably seen a SWAT team two or three times but never in action and I wouldn’t say that they are not needed because maybe someday when something tragic happens we will need them. Also when I saw them I felt very protected just by walking near them and in the area that I was in. The SWAT team are more like the military with intense training and incredible amounts of responsibility.
