CHDS State/Local; The policing profession has evolved since the formalization of police forces in the late 1820s. Much of the change revolves around the community taking an interest in how the police conduct themselves and how they interact with the public. As the public demands more from the police, the police need to strive to gain trust and remain legitimate. This is easier said than done. Due to the breakdown in the social safety net, more and more police officers are called upon to assist those who are suffering from a mental illness. This intersection often tragically results in officers using force, or deadly force on these individuals. When this happens, many in the community lose faith in the police and trust is weakened or lost. In this paper, trust and legitimacy between the community and the police is examined. The argument is made that the police need to have trust and legitimacy with the public they serve in order to be effective in fighting crime as well as terrorism. Three aspects are examined that have the potential to build trust: The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) civil rights investigation of law enforcement, the strategic production of press releases and the creation and use of a mobile smart phone application as a means of connecting to the community. By abiding with the DOJ recommendations...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; Private Military and Security Companies (PMSCs) are perceived as a cost-effective alternative to the national troops contributed by member states to the UN peacekeeping operations. This thesis draws on the Thomas Bruneaus three-dimensional civil-military relations theory to answer the question: Can United Nations employ PMSCs in peacekeeping operations to achieve UN goals more fully than national militaries? Analysis of the UN peacekeeping system reveals that although the UN peacekeeping system has undergone several reforms and developed capacities, current structure and institutional power of the UN has serious shortcomings to control PMSCs and ensure effectiveness and efficiency. The UN needs to develop a more detailed doctrine; create an overarching institutional coordination mechanism; and enhance its logistics capacity to effectively employ PMSCs. Moreover, lose chain of command structure and vague exit strategies complicate the use of PMSCs in peacekeeping.; Captain, Turkish Army

AFCEA-GMU C4I Center Symposium: Critical Issues in C4I, George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, AFCEA; Data sharing is today's principal Information Technology challenge. All sectors—commercial, government, academic, and military—seek improved information exchange to achieve operational benefits, whether in the form of greater profits, improved situational awareness, intellectual advancement, or ability to respond to threats endangering respective interests. Nations and organizations within and across nations have set forth policies to promote greater data sharing, but often without empowering or enabling change agents to introduce measurably better capabilities. While progress is being made in some quarters, in others there is almost a counter-reaction where organizations are closing in on themselves, perpetuating traditional closed pockets of valuable information, even if sometimes having the appearance of adhering to the new policies. The advances are coming in fits and starts, resembling chaotic self- organizing systems, but with no overriding pressure to bring about incremental adaptive improvements. This paper describes an evolutionary management approach that addresses this fundamental failure in many current programs to achieve greater efficiency in data sharing. We advocate adoption of corresponding policy guidelines by the DoD.

CIVINS; In its ongoing effort to produce well-rounded leaders, the United States Navy requires both its enlisted and officer members to attend leadership courses at specified career milestones. Officers, for example, attend the Intermediate Officer Leadership Training Course (IOLTC) at the department head pr mid-career point. This course supports the Navy's mission to "be organized, trained, and equipped primarily for prompt and sustained combat incident to operations at sea" by providing the leadership skills necessary to carry out this mission (Dalton, 1994). The course provides leadership training in the areas of values, leadership, communication, subordinate development,managing systems and processes, command development and mission execution. The course mission is to provide advanced education and training in the concepts, philosophies, elements, tools, and practices of effective leadership and management required to function as an intermediate level officer (Chief of Naval Educations and Training, 1997). Considering the manpower and financial resources expended, is this training effective? Do students use the information taught once they return to the work site? Did transfer of learning occur? These questions were explored in an ongoing study to determine what IOLTC curriculum topics had the greatest influence on modifying their leadership behavior. The study group consisted of IOLTC students at the Naval Leader Training Unit Coronado who were surveyed after completion of the course to determine if their leadership behaviors changed as a result of the IOLTC.; US Navy (USN) author

Procedures, responsibilities and guidelines for the effective closing of military installations

Português
CIVINS; Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; A shrinking military force coupled with budgetary constraints during the last ten years has had a drastic effect on the operations of bases for all branches of the United States military forces. These factors have resulted in the decision to close many military bases in an effort to save tax-payer dollars, theu, helping the multi-billion dollar defense deficit that has accumulated. A Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) committee was established to perform an extensive study on which bases should be considered for closure and this list was submitted to Congress. Eventually, lists were formulated which depicted the bases to be slated for closure. As a member of the Civil Engineer Corps, (CEC) in the U.S. Navy, the issue of base closure is of particular interest because CEC officers are selected to assist in the necessary actions to completely close down the installation. This master's report will study the entire process of base closure. A brief history will first discuss the reasoning for initiating the process and the obstacles involved in getting started. The main portion of this report will be dedicated to the next section which will examine the actual actions that must be followed in closing a base and the coordination that is involved...

Value engineering in government and private sector construction

Português
CIVINS; Value engineering enjoys widespread use throughout the Federal Government and in the private sector. The many billions of dollars saved over the years is a tribute to the effectiveness of applying value engineering methodology to construction projects. The Federal Axquisition Regulations require the use of value engineering in all Federal construction contracts with working estimates of $100,000.00 or more. Many private construction management firms offer value engineering as a part of their pre-construction package of services. This report looks at the similarities and differences of value management programs practiced in the construction management industry today through a comparative look at three major Federal Government acquisition agencies with construction management responsibilities and three large scale private construction firms in the southeastern United States offering Construction Management (CM) services to their clients. The Federal Government has very stringent regulation and guidelines for executing their value management programs. The private firms in this study, on the other hand, appear to do a great job in the area of value management but do not rely as much on regulations and guidelines and more on practical experience and lessons learned. One area in which the Navy is utilizing value management methodology in a unique way is with the Functional Analysis Concept Development (FACD) workshops. These workshops use VE techniques to better define the scope of a proposed project prior to any design efforts. The FACD team consist of representatives of the owner...

7th International Command and Control Research and Technology Symposium (ICCRTS), September 16-20, 2002, Quebec City, QC, Canada.; The benefits of implementing a network-centric Navy lie in the new capabilities made possible by enhanced information sharing between Navy platforms. Foremost is the potential to enable, enhance, and automate dispersed decision-making to support real-time critical mission areas. This paper explores a network-centric paradigm-enabled application: multi-platform resource management. Sensors in platform-centric Naval Battle Forces are generally utilized and managed to support a single weapon or conbat system. the networking of combat systems and platforms creates an information architecture in which sensor management can shift to a Battle Force (BF) focus. In such a network-centric paradigm, individual sensors address the needs of the BF as a whole, overcoming the platform-centric architecture, which constrains sensor use to individual platform's needs. This paper explores design concepts for an automated sensor resource manager that tasks sensors to address BF needs. Network-centric sensor resource management relies on viewing the BF as a single integrated interoperable combat system of systems, rather than a collection of loosely connected surface...

Tipo: Artigo de Revista Científica
Português
Le présent article traite d’une série d'études de cas réalisées entre 2010 et 2011 dans le domaine de la logistique. L'objectif est de faire ressortir l'expérience de cinq entreprises installées au Québec quant à leurs « pratiques exemplaires » implantées au cours des dernières années et qui les ont amenées à une performance logistique supérieure. Après une brève présentation de chaque cas, les auteurs soulignent les éléments les plus importants découlant d’une trentaine d'entrevues, à savoir : l'importance de tenir compte des attentes du marché, la pertinence d'avoir une intention stratégique claire, les fruits d'une bonne gestion du talent et, enfin, les gains dus à la collaboration avec les partenaires d'affaires. Les auteurs expliquent que c'est l'assemblage et le maintien de ces pratiques qui génèrent des gains appréciables et procurent une performance supérieure, et non la simple somme de celles-ci. Cet assemblage est crucial, car il oblige les gestionnaires à saisir la complémentarité entre les pratiques et à faire des choix. La création de conditions personnalisées à chaque entreprise est difficile à reproduire, ce qui expliquerait la difficulté et l'inefficacité d'une simple copie et application des « pratiques exemplaires » dans d'autres entreprises...
