Security Management, Law Enforcement and the Future of Homeland Security
As mentioned in a previous post, I have been in a transition from a position of operational responsibility to one where I have greater opportunity to reflect upon the key issues that form the homeland security professional’s working environment. As both a practitioner and observer within the homeland security enterprise, I have had the opportunity to observe a variety of public and private sector security programs. In many of these programs, there was a necessary relationship between law enforcement, and non-law enforcement security practitioners.
As a result of my observations on this subject, I have developed three principles, which I believe apply to the working relationships that are necessary to secure our nation’s future. In a series of posts, I will be presenting these three principles.
This is a thought experiment presented for discussion and review.
The principles are derived from my own experience as a homeland security practitioner and are presented as a way to establish a foundation for interactions between law enforcement, and non-law enforcement security professionals. The goal is to enhance the power and effectiveness of the most significant force within homeland security, interagency personal relationships.
