Beschreibungen

The introductory chapter of this book presents the concepts of the bene?ts inherent in the study of comparative approach for an effective counterterrorism response on the local law enforcement level and overviews the inception of the project. Throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-?rst century, especially after the events of September 11, 2001, the legitimacy of law enforcement practices has been cited as a major concern for international criminal justice. As policing pr- titioners and scholars throughout the world shifted focus from a traditional reactive, crime control stance to the need for accountability mechanisms to ensure the s- port of citizenry in combating crime and terrorism, the democratization of policing was seen as the best mechanism for achieving long-term gains in public order at the same time as protecting human rights. While the need to maintain human rights remains an important issue, balancing these concerns with the important public safety interests of societies is paramount.
Local law enforcement is key to the war on terror, but there’s a limit to how far citizens want their police to go. This book covers law enforcement training and techniques that are both effective against terror and amenable to citizens.

He served in the NYPD, with more than 11 years assigned to investigative duties. During his time as a member of NYPD, he was involved in the response to numerous significant events, including both attacks on the World Trade Center (1993, 2001) and the anthrax incident at Rockefeller Center. Charles served as an undercover operative in the NYPD for more than 3 years, and in 1995, trained with the Metropolitan Police in London, participating in their Specialist Operations Training Course, which involved long-term undercover operations. For the last 10 years of his career, he worked in various communities in NYC as a detective, investigating all types of criminal activity, including homicide, robbery, burglary, narcotics, kidnapping, and "white-collar" crime. In 2005, after 15 years, he retired as a detective and entered academia. In 2004, he entered the Criminal Justice Doctoral Program at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center (GC) and is ABD. He is currently completing his dissertation thesis focuses on the role local communities in the United States can and should play in combating the home-grown terrorist activities. He is expected to defend his dissertation in the Fall of 2008.

 

The post-9/11 era, with its emphasis on preparedness against terrorist attacks, has seen an ongoing conflict of priorities between law enforcement agencies and the civilian sector: public safety versus individual rights. Community-oriented policing—mobilizing community support in partnership with local law enforcement—has been developed internationally to address this issue, and Terrorism within Comparative International Context assesses the progress and shortcomings of community-based programs. Written by leading experts in police science and based on extensive interviews and focus groups with law enforcement, media, and community representatives, the book offers:



A comparative database on terror control strategies in, among others, Ireland, Turkey, Sweden, Spain, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands


Analysis of the interaction between the community and local law enforcement in response to terrorist activities.


Insights into the relationships between home-grown terrorists, the preventive role of the community, and the proactive role of local law enforcement.


A "Best Practices" section including recommendations for investigation and interrogation techniques.


A real-world template for training law enforcement personnel.


Terrorism within Comparative International Context is critical reading for researchers, students and professionals across a range of interrelated fields, including criminal justice, terrorism/counterterrorism, organized crime, police science, and public administration, and makes an up-to-date textbook for courses in these areas.
Provides a unique insight into the level of interaction between the community and the local law enforcement on the issue of preventing and responding to terrorist activities
Provides a template for law enforcement training that can be customized for the interested forces
Provides an insight into the connections between home grown terrorism and the preventive/proactive role of the local law enforcement
Provides an additional academic title (one of the few available) for the courses that overview the comparative/international aspects of terrorism
