Commentary and Opinions

Car theft is a fruitful field of opportunity for today’s criminals as they seek new and innovative ways for gaining quick profits. Recent reports indicate that prior to committing theft, organized car-theft gangs are doing their homework. They are targeting specific car rental facilities, conducting exhaustive site-studies of the facilities to identify vulnerabilities that will make their job easier.
In recent decades, wildfires of unprecedented magnitude and severity have increased in frequency, raising concerns about impacts on local natural resources such as water. The Water Research Foundation (WRF) and the Canadian Water Network (CWN) recently released a new report that offers a comprehensive look at the state of knowledge around this subject and the potential for mitigating the impact wildfires can have on water

You approach the scene, taking the first steps to determining what happened and how to prevent it in the future. Following your training, you secure the area, conduct a scan of the scene, take photos to maintain a permanent record of the scene as you found it, and begin collecting and evaluating physical evidence.
It almost goes without saying that security clearances are of paramount importance in the field of homeland security. Whether a homeland security-related job involves access control, biometrics, border protection, disaster recovery, emergency preparedness, IT security, maritime and port security, rail security, security at the state and local level, or urban security, there is no doubt that a successful candidate-for-hire is going to need either a Secret or Top Secret clearance.
