Commentary and Opinions

Protecting our nation's borders is a daunting task, requiring constant vigilance by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and border and port security officials. Because border and port security officials face a unique set of challenges at any given point of entry, increased awareness and enhanced security operations are needed. While sensor-based intelligence information is currently being used to enhance security, the ever-expanding number of land-based and airborne sensor platforms is providing an unmanageable deluge of information – ultimately causing some important information to be overlooked.
The specter of gun violence threatens cities virtually throughout the world, and the deepening economic downturn appears already to have caused an increase in crime rates as well as gun violence.
