The attacks by Islamic terrorists on September 11, 2001 have increased demands for law enforcement agencies in the areas of officer functions and policing concepts. It has led the American justice system to implement unconventional tasks for combating terrorism. The enhancement in safety measures that have taken place since September 11, 2001 better prepares law enforcement agencies to deal with threats that endanger society. This change promotes better effectiveness in Department of Homeland Security (DHS) programs and operations.
Since the tragedy that had occurred on September 11, 2001, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) tirelessly continues to tighten security controls. Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) screen air travelers at designated security checkpoints throughout Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (Schmalleger, 2005). As per TSA security strategy, TSOs conduct random security screenings above norms, in which passengers are asked to take off their shoes and carry-on bags. TSOs also patrol checkpoint areas and at check-ins as persons seen to be suspicious are chosen for additional screening (Transportation Security Administration [TSA], n.d.). Other measures taken are checking boarding passes and identification cards. Strengthening airline security will make it difficult for terrorists to overcome the enhanced safety measures taken.
The Federal Burial of Investigation (FBI), along with other federal agencies, has implemented unconventional tasks for combating terrorism. “The FBI has recently formed a state and local enforcement advisory committee . . . and the Office of Law Enforcement Coordination” (Berger, 2002, p. 4). Policing impacted by terrorism has not only affected federal agencies, but at state and local levels as well. Police departments, and the officers they employ, engage in terrorism preventive activities, such as performing more community policing activities, refining training in communicating with citizens to gather a substantial amount of information and intelligence, training in biological and chemical incidents, and reassigning officers to counterterrorism divisions (depending on budgetary considerations) (Schmalleger, 2005). The safety of our nation greatly depends on the approaches taken by law enforcement agencies to prevent future terrorism.
The TSA, FBI, and other law enforcement agencies work effectively with DHS programs and operations to protect citizens and communities from future terrorist attacks. “Police departments are increasingly being asked to take on duties that fall within the homeland security arena” (Riley, Wilson, Treverton, & Raymond, 2006, ¶ 2). One of the many proactive measures taken is the collaboration of information and intelligence between law enforcement agencies. New duties related to homeland security within their jurisdictions and enhanced community-policing policies will help DHS in its operations of addressing the safety of human life.
HEY! THAT REPORT WAS AWESOME! YOU OBVIOSLY WORKED REALLY REALLY HARD ON IT. THE ONLY THING I'LL SAY IS THAT YOU NEED A BETTER ENDING. YOU NEED SOME THING THAT WILL REALLY END IT. MAYBE YOU COULD SAY "WHAT HAPPENED ON sEPTEMBER 11TH IS TRAGIC BUT OUR NATION IS PLEASED THAT THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS BEING DONE TO STOP IT FROM HAPPENING AGAIN." THAT WOULD MAKE IT BETTER BUT, OTHER THEN THAT IT ROCKS!!!! GREAT JOB!!!! ;)
"Since the tragedy that had occurred on September 11, 2001"
I think the "had" there is unnecessary. It would be appropriate in an already past-tense article in which...eh...hard to explain. Example:
"John walked down the street, the sights and smells bringing back fond memories of childhood exploration of the woods near his house. Once, he had gone for a walk in those woods..."
I hope you understand what I mean...
"The Federal Burial of Investigation (FBI),
along with other federal agencies, has implemented unconventional tasks for combating terrorism"
That's "Federal Bureau of Investigation".
engage in terrorism preventive activities
AFAIK, "Preventive" isn't the correct conjugation here. "...terrorism prevention..." is, I believe, correct.
These are all rather obscure, hard-to-detect errors. It's really a great paper. If you know for sure that any of these things I've corrected are right, or if your English teacher says that it's correct, disregard my correction and correct it according to the correct correction. :P
Sorry, "...already past tense sentence" is what I meant to type.
