Using the readers and your own research, complete a 3-5
page analysis of United States (US) National Response Framework. Based on your readings, what are the strengths and
weakness of the US
plan? What are the alternative to the US plan? Concentrate on the
differences between prevention, planning, response and recovery.
Superior work (an A grade) will include sources from academic, peer reviewed
journals; be properly formatted and sourced in APA style.
Choose five of the following terms. Conduct research and write a one page
briefing paper on the EACH term. Presume that the audience is your
agency's chief executive. Use whatever form (memo, white paper, etc)
your agency most commonly uses. On this one page, define the term and
determine if the term has any application to domestic law enforcement.
Hint: Many of these terms have a domestic law enforcement equivalent.
Finding the similarities and differences is the most important part of this
These one page briefing papers should not be in an academic style (such as APA),
but in an organizational style of writing.

Session/Semester Long Project:
At this point in the course, you
have selected a terrorist group and prepared a bibliography. Spend
sometime going over the research in your bibliography. A good paper has
headings and sub-headings. At a minimum, your final paper should have
these headings: 1) Group History; 2) Structure and Organization; 3) Current
Activities; 4) Major Goals; and, 5) Recommended Counterterrorist
Policies, Strategies and Tactics. For this assignment, take your
bibliography and arrange your sources under these headings and any others you
feel strengthen you paper. A source may appear under more than one
heading. But, each heading should have multiple sources. This
exercise should give you (and the instructor) a good idea of how well you have
thought out your paper. Submit this project.
