Technology for information management
Preventing and responding to terrorism
This document discusses the types of resources that police may want to consider when developing their terrorism prevention and response plan. To deal effectively with the threat of domestic terrorism, the police must be able to manage and coordinate different sources of data and intelligence. They must also process them in such a way as to provide an enhanced understanding of actual or potential criminal activity. In recent years, technological advances have resulted in vast improvements in data gathering techniques, including in-field laptops, automated computer aided dispatch systems, and geographical information systems. Some police departments are finding value in combining law enforcement data with other types of data to examine crime problems in greater depth. These data are being used both in the aggregate and at the incident level. The importance of incident level data is that it can be analyzed by different levels of geography (address, beat, reporting district) as well as by other variables. Non-law enforcement types of data such as pawn information and drug court information are often available in incident level format and when combined with the more traditional law enforcement data, can allow for numerous analytical possibilities. Agencies are now recognizing the benefits of data sharing across institutions and jurisdictions. There is also the need to ensure that police personnel receive the necessary training to make certain that they have the tools required to effectively respond to terrorist attacks. The importance of communications interoperability was reaffirmed during the recent terrorist attacks. Technology can assist local law enforcement by delivering timely and consistent information to the community. Agencies need to assess the community₂s needs and develop an approach that is tailored to the distinctive characteristics and requirements that exist within each individual jurisdiction.
"This guide provides an overview of the physical processes that affect oil movement and behavior in the marine environment. Trajectory analysis is most often done using computer models to keep track of complex, interacting processes. Even without a model, you can estimate the time and length scale of an event using the information you'll find here. The guide can help the responder and planner understand physical processes and potential uncertainties as they incorporate trajectory analysis into the response"--Intro.

In January 1915, two Treasury Department agencies merged to form the United States Coast Guard. One of these agencies, the United States Life-Saving Service (USLSS) had been created in August 1848 for the purpose of rescuing people who were ship-wrecked on the coast of New Jersey. That federal organization, manned primarily by volunteers, was reorganized in 1870 to included paid surfmen who patrolled our coastline during stormy seasons. Eventually the scope of the USLSS included the nation's Atlantic, Great Lakes, Gulf of Mexico, Pacific, and Alaskan coats. For 44 years, the surfmen of the USLSS dutifully pounded their feet along mostly sandy pathways in all kinds of weather, occasionally discovering a vessel in distress and, then, acting to initiate the rescue operations that would demand their fullest participation. And, sometimes, even their sacrifice. These surfmen have been called "sandpounders." It was a title that they could wear proudly. This is the story of that organization as gleaned from the official Annual Reports of the USLSS and the correspondence files of the National Archives.

"The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) monitors incentive programs established by state regulators in order to obtain current information and to consider the potential safety effects of the incentive programs as applied to nuclear units. The current report is an update of NUREG/CR-5509, Incentive Regulation of Nuclear Power Plants by State Public Utility Commissions, published in December 1989. The information in this report was obtained from interviews conducted with each state regulator and each utility with a minimum entitlement of 10%. The agreements, orders, and settlements from which each incentive program was implemented were reviewed as required. The interviews and supporting documentation form the basis for the individual state reports describing the structure and financial impact of each incentive program. The programs currently in effect represent the adoption of an existing nuclear performance incentive program proposal and one new program. In addition, since 1989 a number of nuclear units have been included in one existing program; while one program was discontinued and another one concluded."--U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Scientific and Technical Information website.

The purpose of this technical report is to compile existing information about the biology, hydrology, geology, and socioeconomics of the Mississippi Deltaic Plain Region (MDPR) in a quantitative framework that will both characterize the region and provide a database for future ecological models. The habitats modeled are aggregated from those previously identified in the MDPR by Wicker et al. (1980b) according to the classification system of Cowardin et al. (1979) (see Table 3) . Detailed descriptions of the biological, physical, and socioeconomic interconnections within this coastal ecosystem allow coastal rranagers and decision makers to better assess the impacts of human activity on the region's natural resources. It is hoped that future modeling attempts based on the data collected in this report will help predict human impacts on coastal ecosystems and aid in the arduous task of assessing tradeoffs between nonrenewable resoarce development and renewable resource preservation. This technical report was designed to supplement the companion narrative description of the Mississippi Deltaic Plain Region as the final products in the Mississippi Deltaic Plain Region Characterization Study. Together these two volumes provide both general definitions and detailed data on the region.
