Most organization leaders believe their emergency plans are state-of-the-art. When, in fact, their plans are dangerously flawed.

Most campus administrators regard evacuation drills as a straightforward obligation on the school calendar. Activate the alarm; students file out bored; students file back in really bored; end of drill. A no-brainer, right?

At schools, campuses, sporting events, and retail facilities, those thoughts ring out day after day. We have watched with horror the increasingly more frequent news of violence at establishments we once thought "safe" from wanton violence. One has to just scan the news to see that no place is immune from any type of random act that injures or kills innocent civilians, be it a movie theater, retail mall, sporting event, school, or church. In this column, let's take a look at a few basic elements.

    In 1982, a foreign diplomat was assassinated a few blocks from a Federal law enforcement agency office. There were no computers, cell phones, or pagers. Within 18 months, investigators made 18 arrests and put two major terrorist organizations out of business. This article will explain how this was accomplished with no digital technology.

    6/30/2015 · Law Enforcement
    This article will discuss the attempted management of a convicted cooperating witness who continued his cons while working with the government. He was a constant challenge with many interesting events. These types of people do not change their personalities just because they are "cooperating". The first time I met him he said, "You'll like me in 15 minutes". He was right.

    Homicide cases in which the victim cannot be identified are difficult to solve and profile. This article will discuss the importance of victimology in a homicide investigation.

    Violent Crime has increased dramatically in the United States in the past 50 years. Many of these crimes involve serial homicide and rape which are especially challenging for investigators and experts since the perpetrators are usually experienced at what they do and don't leave many clues at the crime scene (if it can even be found). Plus, these crimes have a tendency to gain a lot of notoriety from the news media and public which results in intense pressure on the police department or investigating agency to solve these crimes quickly.

    6/5/2014 · Psychology
    Many times investigators and experts are confronted with cases which are equivocal: uncertain or questionable. For example, a death appears to be suicide but may actually be murder staged to appear to be a suicide. There are also cases which appear to be suicide but are actually accidental deaths. This article will provide a questionnaire for investigators and experts when confronted with these types of cases. The questionnaire is provided to attempt to determine the mental state of the victim just prior to his or her death and whether or not the victim was suicidal.

    5/8/2014 · Criminology
    John Delorean was a very successful executive at General Motors and was known for developing the Pontiac GTO, the Pontiac Firebird, Pontiac Grand Prix, Chevrolet Vega, and the DeLorean DMC-12 sports car, which was later featured in the 1985 film Back to the Future. In 1982 Delorean was arrested by the FBI for drug trafficking. "The alleged drug trafficking was supposedly an attempt to raise funds for his struggling company, which declared bankruptcy that same year. He successfully defended himself against the drug trafficking charges, showing that his alleged involvement was a result of entrapment by federal agents". Delorean was found not guilty on August 16, 1984.

    This article will focus on how to research FBI policies and procedures for the operation of informants. These documents are available to the public through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIPA). Researching FBI records can be very difficult and frustrating since many of the records are not searchable once you find the record you desire. Lawyers who need help researching these records may find that it is more cost effective to hire an expert to find the information they need.

    Many young people make bad decisions which may follow them the rest of their lives and close doors to great opportunities as they progress through the work force. The bad decisions which seem like a "fling" at the time now have disastrous consequences when the young person has an interest in a job that requires a security clearance with a background investigation and polygraph.

    Violent Crime has increased dramatically in the United States in the past 50 years. Many premises liability cases involve violent crimes that could have been prevented if the landowner had taken the appropriate precautions based on industry standards. Foreseeability is important in determining whether violent crime could have been predicted based on past violent events. This information is easily obtained due to advances in computer technology. The public can now access this information in most locations throughout the United States.

    False allegations are seen in several types of cases and are very problematic for police since extensive investigation must be conducted to corroborate the victim's allegations. A great deal of resources can be wasted in these investigations since the alleged crime never took place. One study indicated that false rape allegations constituted 41% of all forcible rape cases in one police department. There are indicators of false allegations that may help police and experts determine whether a crime took place.

    Your personal security is based on your life style, and personal decisions. The Risk Continuum will assist you in determining your risk for becoming the victim of a violent crime. Minor changes in your life style may have a major impact on whether or not you will become a violent crime victim. There are many risk factors that you should consider when trying to reduce your level of risk.

    Victimology is defined as an assessment of everything that can be known about the victim of a crime, and is a critical tool for the investigator and experts which can lead to the quick solution of a criminal case or the resolution of a premises liability matter involving a violent crime.

    9/5/2013 · Law Enforcement
    Offenders will sometimes stage a violent crime because they know that they need to re-direct the investigation. The problem for some of them is that they are unfamiliar with crime scene investigation procedures and may make themselves more obvious as a suspect.

    8/19/2013 · Law Enforcement
    Defendant was observed driving a vehicle with a cracked windshield and a broken driver's side rear tail lens. He was stopped by the police for equipment violations and was asked various questions which indicated that he might be transporting money from an illegal drug transaction. Police asked if they could search the car and the defendant refused.

    The assessment of victim risk by an expert witness in a premises liability case may become critical to the successful outcome of the case. This article provides a Daubert style methodology for determining whether the victim was at low, moderate, or high risk for a crime of violence.

    As is probably true for many of us in the workplace, my career has not turned out quite as I envisioned it would some 40 years ago. More specifically, as a beginning graduate student in sociology, I had no idea I would eventually practice forensic criminology or be in a position to write about what follows. In fact, I had never heard of forensic criminology (FC) until years later and, I believe, neither had my academic colleagues. It was only after I began to practice as a forensic criminologist and to identify myself as one that the parameters of this fascinating area of expertise began to reveal themselves more fully to me.

    Social scientists play an increasingly important role in the prosecution and defense of both criminal and civil matters before the courts. An expanding area of forensic sociology and criminology involves the analysis of crime foreseeability and security standards of care as they relate to the question of liability for negligent security. Criminologists analyze prior crimes at a location and consider the totality of circumstances in order to determine foreseeability.

    When Claude Devereux's brother, Patrick, is killed at the Battle of Gettysburg, he's devastated. But there is little time for grief. Devereux, a Confederate spy, has worked his way behind enemy lines in the North to become a prominent adviser to Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. If General Robert Lee and his comrades in the South have any chance of succeeding in beating the Union, Devereux knows that he must keep his cover at all costs. So he steers clear of danger even when he doesn't want to do so….Devereux must do all that he can to stop Grant in his tracks and help the South win its independence in Death Piled Hard.

    The Devereuxs of Alexandria, Virginia were moderate people. The eldest son seemed the most moderate of all. Claude Devereux wanted no part of secession. None of his family wanted Virginia to leave the Union. This family of bankers owned no slaves and. . .

If there is any school superintendent in the nation who currently operates without formalized school safety plans in place (quite apart from the noticeable but ignored "thou-shalt-nots" festooned on campus walls, doors and fences), s/he needs to regard-as a wake-up scream-the thunderous allegations of negligence, child endangerment, foreseen traumatic event, breach of duty of care, sexual molestation, dereliction of duty, and reckless disregard hurled by a passing parade of aggrieved and angry parents, as they will set the pace nationwide in the filing of future lawsuits over the on-campus dangers and subsequent injuries and traumas, of various kinds and degrees, to their children.

    On June 14, 2013, the nation paused to pray and remember the unspeakably horrific shooting, a massacre that claimed 26 lives, on December 14, 2012, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown Connecticut. The cruel irony, as legions of the country's experts, myself included, continue to engage in differential diagnoses and soul-searching for answers as to who and what went wrong, is that Sandy Hook Elementary School probably could not have done anything more, different or better, to protect its students. Short of constructing a walled-in campus inside of which students would receive provisions and other necessities from the outside.

    As an emergency professional, we are prepared to deal with unexpected situations, including disasters. Every time we hear about potential or real crisis, we automatically review the procedures in our minds and the desire to help is enormous. On many occasions, I would like to go directly to a scene to assist the victims and my peers. I believe that this feeling is not different among everyone involved in this field.

    10/21/2015 · Crisis Management
    Some articles have been written over the years about panic in disasters and fires. The idea that panic rarely occurs in disasters has been readily accepted. When disasters happen, usually, people act in such a way to show solidarity with the other victims. It is common to see some degree of organization in order to assist searches and reconstruction work.

    In 1903, a fire killed more than 600 people in the Iroquois Theater in Chicago. Most of the victims were children. Among the causes of this tragedy were inadequate emergency exits, insufficient and poorly signposted, overcrowding, lack of fire protection equipment and even suspicion of bribery of persons responsible for overseen the safety conditions of the Theater.

    It is usual to find on beaches, sand castles being built. They arouse the curiosity of many, especially children and are really true masterpieces. However, the more elaborate and larger they are, the easier it is for them to be destroyed, what ends up constituting a paradox. The more sophisticated, the more fragile.
