Emergency Management Technolo 1

Click on the following links for the Phase 1 Reading Assignment:

For this project, you will assume a position of a law enforcement agency employee. You are required to research and present an examination of an actual detection, inspection, or surveillance tool that will increase the capability of an agency to identify or thwart threats that would cause considerable damage to a populace if successful. In addition to the technological capabilities and the expected result, consider the cost to an agency in monetary terms, goodwill to the public, and consequences if the tool is or is not purchased and deployed.

Also, research the way 2–3 detection, inspection, or surveillance technologies are moving to ensure security of the United States and ways to mitigate potential threats to security. You should pursue a corresponding humanistic (legal or ethical) approach to ensure that the technology being used for security does not, at the same time, take away or infringe upon the basic natural rights of people. You must address the technologies with regard to physical, legal, ethical, technological, and human use limitations.
