The mission, authority, organization, role, function, and the fundamental terminology that affects homeland security in the United States is examined in this book. Homeland security demands quick, effective organization to operate in emergencies, but simultaneously defies it by the limited time frame and sheer scope of the problem. The author focuses on the five core missions of homeland security: preventing terrorism, securing borders, enforcing immigration law, safeguarding cyber systems, and ensuring resilience to disasters. These core missions require five common skill areas for homeland security operations: risk assessment, determining authority and capability to enact solutions, identifying organizational structure and functions, recognizing operational patterns, and applying analytical techniques to achieve the best performance possible. Unique features include the key points of contact, potential areas of conflict, legal and executive aspects, work flow processes and their analysis, examination of risk assessment, review of implementation and response, emergency services and logistics, and political issues. In addition, operational assignment of resources for intelligence, tactical response, investigations, prosecution, and confinement are discussed. A glossary of abbreviated terms frequently used is among the special features provided. With 18 illustrations, this up-to-date overview of homeland security and the necessary methods for implementation is a resource of valuable information.

Police Analysis and Planning for Homicide Bombings is oriented toward planning police operations in the public sector, but will be usable by other public officials as well as by some military and private sector police operations. It addresses police threat assessment of, vulnerability assessment to, defense against and response to attacks by homicide bombs. It begins with an essay on the distinctions between military and police operations and includes an examination of the U.S. counter terrorist policy and structure, assessment of explosive weapons of mass destruction and the terrorist ability to make and use them, the legal limitations of police response operations in the United States, and defensive response to this form of attack. It concludes with commentary on actions that may be needed if this threat continues to develop in the United States. Relying upon both experience and research, the author has synthesized the varied military, law enforcement and private security approaches into a detailed analysis of the threat posed by terrorist use of homicide bombs and the necessary internal response. With the first-hand experience of applying the knowledge in an actual threat environment, the combination of historical perspective and reality confrontation produces an effective examination of the topic for the police administrator and emergency planner.

With the first hand experience of applying the knowledge in an actual threat environment, the combination of historical perspective and reality confrontation produces a most effective examination of the subject for the police administrator and emergency planner. The text will also be practical and useful for governmental administrators, military police, and private security personnel.
