Assignment 1

Emergency managers focus on preparation for potential emergencies, disasters, and catastrophic events and coordinating the responses to those events. Emergency managers are the experts in the field of emergency management, and as experts, they are often called upon to provide information and advice to policy makers, such as city managers, city councils, police chiefs and their staffs, fire chiefs and their staffs, and private-sector stakeholders.

You are an emergency manager in a medium-sized city, and you have been asked by your city manager to provide the city council with some important information that will better facilitate its decision making on seeking and accepting state and federal grants, many of which have matching funds. However, many members of the city council are very concerned about the possible loss of local control that they believe may result if the city accepts outside funding.

Assignment Guidelines

Address the following in 2-3 pages:

• Who holds the most authority and responsibility in emergency management? Why?

• What is the primary purpose of the state and federal levels in regard to emergency management responses? Explain.

• What is the role of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in regard to emergency management responses? Explain.

• What is the role of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in regard to emergency management responses? Explain.

• Provide and describe 2-3 examples of federal, state, local, and private integration efforts, and explain why they were successful in their emergency responses.

• Be sure to reference all of your sources using APA style.

Assignment 2

You are an investigator with the District Attorney's Investigation Team for a major metropolitan area. You are one of the recently hired 16 new investigators that will be sprinkled throughout the department.

All 16 of you have had little time as investigators and the Chief's concern is that you all are properly trained in issues of the exclusionary rule to avoid problems later on during investigations. This is a political hot potato because these are supposed to be the best investigators in the jurisdiction. Your goal is to develop a 5-6 page white paper that outlines concerns for Exclusionary Rule issues.

In a white paper of 5-6 pages to be presented to the newly assigned investigators, please include responses to the bulleted issues listed below.

It is critical that when you make a statement of fact in your presentation that you cite the reference you obtained the information from in the text of the paper and that the reference is included in your reference page.

As always your paper will be submitted in the APA format current edition. No abstract is required as this is a short position paper but a title page, reference page, and appropriate running header with page numbers are necessary.

• Assignment Guidelines

• Address the following in 5-6 pages:

• Describe the "Exclusionary Rule" and what it is meant to protect the citizens of this country from.

• What are the benefits of the Exclusionary Rule? Explain.

• Identify at least two methods of demonstrative evidence which would explain the concept of "Best Evidence". You may use scenarios to describe the theory of Best Evidence.

• Explain to the newly appointed investigators the absolute adherence to avoiding any evidentiary issue that would result in a "Fruit of the Poisonous Tree" violation. Explain the ramifications and results of such a violation. Use at least two scenarios to demonstrate this issue.

• Explain to the new investigators the idea behind the courts displeasure with issues like the Christian Burial Speech. What might it mean in the long run to a serious case just as it did with Brewer v. Williams.

• Explain the types of behavior that may result in the application of the Shocking the Conscience of the Court Test. Provide at least one scenario as demonstrative instruction.

• Provide instruction that coercion is a clear violation of the constitution. What areas are violated and what types of behavior are considered coercion.

• What are the liabilities of the Exclusionary Rule? Explain.

• What types of errors can occur? Explain

• What ramifications can result from these errors? Explain.

• Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.

Note: For this exercise do not involve military use of water boarding on enemy combatants. That is another issue that your investigators will not have to face.
