The Unit 8 Assignment consists of two parts. Include both parts one and two in a single Word document for submission.
Part One: Local Police Role in Homeland Security
As you may recall from the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 the role of the local Boston Police Department was far more extensive than the getting coffee for federal agents that TV police dramas sometimes portray. It was a true partnership between local and federal agencies working hand-in-hand to protect the local community and potentially the entire country from an initially unknown enemy. In the textbook Cordner outlines that the police role in homeland security is comprised of four sectors or systems.
Part Two: Decision-Making and Organizational Philosophies
Intelligence-led policing and community-oriented policing are two of the primary organizational philosophies used by law enforcement agencies today. These philosophies guide the decisions made within organizations and how they reduce crime and the fear of crime in their communities.
