Development And Reform Of The Iraqi Police Forces By Strategic Studies Institute & Tony Pfaff
Paperback: $15.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
Nearly every week, newspapers carry stories of the failure of the Iraqi police to provide basic civil security for the citizens of Iraq. Despite millions of dollars in aid, equipment, education, and... More > advisors, more than 4 years later police force development lags far behind the military. Numerous reasons are offered to account for this gap: corrupt practices left over from the previous regime, infiltration by militias, weak leadership, competition by better armed and organized criminal and militant groups, and so on. However, the military is also subject to these same influences, thus none of these explanations by themselves or in combination are satisfactory. But such an explanation is critical if policymakers and advisors are going to successfully facilitate police reform. This paper argues that the poor political and security environment impacts social, political, and cultural factors in ways that are predictable, understandable, and, with external help, resolvable.< Less

Crime analysis is both a profession and a set of techniques. The professionals who perform crime analysis, and the techniques they use, are dedicated to helping a police department become more... More > effective through better information. Crime mapping is used by analysts in law enforcement agencies to map, visualize, and analyze crime incident patterns. It is a key component of crime analysis and the CompStat policing strategy. Mapping crime, using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), allows crime analysts to identify crime hot spots, along with other trends and patterns. This book focuses mostly on crime analysis mapping, but includes a discussion of predictive modeling, a special handling of modeling terrorism, and appendices which include a review of probability and statistics and possible board questions. The book is not intended to be all inclusive, nor does it handle the subjects in depth. Rather, it is more of a “survey” of a few crime analysis topics that are dealt with more rigorously by other authors.< Less

More > forecasting, shipping, flight and other decisions depend on them.We make predictions all the time and sometimes we get it right.Strategic foresight is not about prediction. It is about understanding and anticipating different futures. The future is rarely a straight line from the past–it is subject to change and uncertainty. What strategic foresight as a process does is seek to understand why the future will be different from the past and what the implication of these differences are. In this book, I provide insights from forty years of consulting practice with organizations from large (Oracle, TESCO, Heinz, Barclays, Conoco-Phillips), medium (Debenhams, West Yorkshire Police, Millennium Copthorne) and small (Elk Island Public Schools, Alberta Assessment Consortium, Contact North/Contact Nord); for-profit and non-profit.< Less

More > Edward Lewis is personal – it is his own great great grandfather. And it is not proving to be a rational or predictable case. If it were, Edward would not be turning up in the present. Edward was transported from London to Hobart Town in 1845 as a 13-year-old pickpocket. Four years later, Sarah Crosby, an Irish lass escaping from the potato famine, committed a crime in London and was also transported to Hobart. They married, and Edward became a policeman and detective in New South Wales. Then, at some point, Edward disappeared. The question is, did he really die? Glenn Martin’s story of his ancestors plants their stake in Australia’s past while pushing the door open to mystery. The answer that he suggests is compelling.< Less
