Some grantors use rather broad language, such as seeking projects that will build assets, develop communities, promote peace, enhance freedom, promote social justice, further education, promote religious development, cure disease, and so on. Nationwide or regional groups often control where the money will go, but recent DHS grants are emphasizing projects promoting communications interoperability and "CBERNIE"-an acronym for chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, incendiary, and explos...

The 21st century's competi24-hour news services e brought forth the probity that whether in a or urban area of the nation or in the smallest rural comer, police agencies responsible for those jurisdictions could very well find themselves in the national spotlight regarding missing person cases.

In my opinion, rumors are often a result of an administration that has issues of fairness, consistency and/or especially internal communication problems with and between front-line employees and supervision or command staff, including the chief. No retaliation or retribution shall be threatened or accomplished by supervisors, command staff members or the chief administrator due to issues brought forth by the PLG The purpose of the PLG is to open the lines of communication between employees a...

Why the external mount? 'Optically, the signal is brighter if the light does not have to pass through -the angled and/or tinted windshield or rear window glass, said Phil VonTom, director of Business Development and International Sales. White LEDs have finally replaced halogen bulbs in the take-downs and alleys integrated into lightbars.

The basic training provided to police officers in this course covers case law and administrative procedures in addition to the proper administration and interpretation of the test battery.

The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche said, "A person unlearns arrog...
Open questions create a two-way conversation, allowing the interviewee to answer on his terms and take the answers into the conversational direction he prefers.

[...] to tie it up with a pretty bow, he tells you how and why you should do an interview, a press release, a press conference, deal with a crisis, pick a PIO, do damage control, and make heads or tails of media law. A person should definitely read this book before assuming a PIO position not only for the practical tips on dealing with the media, but also for the insider's view on how the media work.
When conducting the assessment, the leader should have the authority to examine all aspects of the agency's operations, management skills to recognize desired behavior, and organizational skills to keep the project on schedule and produce a quality report.
