Crisis in public sector

First find and select a current event that involves a crisis in the public safety sector. For example, an active shooter at a school, an officer-involved shooting, a riot at a prison, a terrorist attack, and a barricade situation are all relevant public safety crises you could select. Then analyze the crisis and the response in order to discuss these questions:

•What is the crisis?

•From a public safety administrator’s perspective, what was the tactical response to the incident? In your response, focus on the policy, addressing bad press, personnel, and the community.

•From a public safety administrator’s perspective, what steps did the agency take to mitigate the crisis? What steps should it have taken? What do you recommend to mitigate the crisis?

As an optional task, you may also consider the following:

•What kinds of plans were or should have been in place before the incident happened? Social media? Internal investigation? Partnership with other agencies?

Give a link to the current event you refer to in your discussion post.
