US519 - Invest in Intelligence and Law Enforcement
I have spent the last 17 years of my life working in the law enforcement and intelligence arenas and have witnessed firsthand both tremendous successes and unfortunate failures. The growth in COMPSTAT based law enforcement analysis and inter-agency intelligence sharing along with the potential productivity gains from the use of technology tools are success stories which must continue. The failure of our intelligence apparatus leading to the events on September 11th, was a bureaucratic failure as well as an intelligence failure. Bogging our intelligence apparatus down in excessive bureaucracy and arcane rules is bound to result in repeated shortcomings. We must look at increasing efficiency and reducing redundant law enforcement functions currently spread amongst an alphabet soup of different agencies. This will allow us to reduce unnecessary bureaucracy while at the same time increasing productivity and streamlining operations.
