Homeland Security

| July 17, 2015
1) Should battlefield conditions be studied and trained for by our nation’s first responders in case we ever come under attack by hardened Al Qaeda soldiers? How vulnerable is the United States to combat-like attacks? 2) How could our nation’s law enforcement prepare itself against war-like conditions in the case of a large scale coordinated terrorist strike? 3) Given that law enforcement is supposed to be friendly and approachable by the public because of their position as role models and public servants and the recent push for community policing principles, could preparing for a potential terrorist strike run counter to this image? Could the image of officers dressed in black tactical gear, Kevlar vests, helmets, boots, masks, and goggles and riding around in armored personnel carriers with rifles and submachine guns turn off the average citizen and reduce their willingness to cooperate or approach law enforcement? 4) Could “target hardening”, or the beefing up of physical security around a sensitive location reduce the likelihood of terrorists attacking that specific building or location? 5) Is it likely that the next attempted or successful terrorist strike in the United States will come from outside of our border or be homegrown domestically right here in the United States? Would it be easier or harder for law enforcement to spot and stop potential terrorist attacks being planned within the US? Could terrorists acquire the needed supplies and hardware necessary for a terrorist strike within our own country? This assignment is worth 30% of the overall grade for the course so it should be taken seriously and a substantial amount of your work should be devoted towards it. Utilize external resources such as online searches, journals, texts, and archived newspapers in answering these question sets. Be sure to give proper attribution by referencing and citing any borrowed work that you utilize in answering these question sets and follow the MLA or APA style for your works cited page and in-text citations. Utilize 12 point font, preferably Times New Roman or Arial. Your work should be single spaced and your ideas broken up into appropriate paragraphs. You may use 1 inch margins all around. There are 10 broad question sets that need to be answered. Utilize approximately 1/2 to 1 page worth of material for each question set, therefore your assignment should be about 5-10 pages in length. 1) Should battlefield conditions be studied and trained for by our nation’s first responders in case we ever come under attack by hardened Al Qaeda soldiers?
