Introduction:
This semester I chose the Atlanta Police Department as my agency to conduct research on. I chose this agency because I was interested in how the department was ran, what it is exactly that they do to help the city besides protect and serve, and how they are able to take great control over such a huge city as Atlanta, Georgia.
Descriptive Narrative: In 1846 a small town known as Marthesville was renamed to Atlanta with only 9,000 citizens and 20 police officers. Over fifty years the city of Atlanta underwent many changes and grew to over 70,000 citizens and had over five different chief of police. Over another fifty years, a juvenile court and separate juvenile facilities were established. In 1917, Atlanta experienced the Great Fire which destroyed nearly 300 acres ($5.5 million in losses). The Atlanta Police Department also sent forty-five of its one hundred and twenty nine officers to serve in World War II and only experienced two fatalities. The chief of the Atlanta Police Department is George N. Turner who has served in many different roles in this department in his 29 years of service before becoming the chief. Turner is responsible for a 17% reduction in overall crime during a two year command of the Zone One Precinct. Turner has received numerous commendations and awards for his faithful service and work from important agencies such as the Secret Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Atlanta Police Department is divided into six divisions including: The Chief of Staff, the Field Operations Division, the Criminal Investigations Divisions, Support Services, Community Services, and the Strategy and Special Projects division. The most important division is the Field Operations Division which divides the city into six different zones that all have their own mini precincts throughout the patrol zone.

A Briefing in Autism

...Cmea Psycology 11 October 2012 A Briefing in Autism Autism is a brain impairment, a disorder that affects the neural development, causing difficulty in a person's ability to communicate, understand and speak, and most of all social interaction. Childhood autism usually manifests itself before the age of three and is more common in boys than girls, 1 in 88 kids are now diagnosed with some type of autism in the United States. Autism is not necessarily accompanied by mental retardation because there are cases of children with speech and intelligence intact, especially those diagnosed with “...Asperger's Syndrome, a high functioning form of autism, that is marked by normal intelligence, often accompanied by exceptional skill or talent in a specific area, but deficient social and communication skills...” (Myers). Giving the fact that austim is a spectrum (ASD – Autism Spectrum Disorder), which I like to compare it to a rainbow, there are many forms, or categories that are within the spectrum. One of them is PDD, Pervasive Developmental Disorder which differs from autism by becoming evident only after 3 years of age. Because Autism has not a specific cause, it is called syndrome (= set of symptoms) and as in any syndrome, the degree of impairment can vary from most severe to the milder and reaches all social classes worldwide. Leo Kanner (1894 to 1981) was the first to classify autism in 1943, when he published “Autistic disturbances of affective contact”, in the magazine...

Italy Country Briefing

...ITALY COUNTRY BRIEFING updated at May 2009 Forecast May 26th 2009 From the Economist Intelligence Unit Source: Country Forecast | | | | Outlook for 2009-10 • Italy's right-of-centre coalition government, led by Silvio Berlusconi, faces a major challenge to limit the impact of the global crisis on Italy's rapidly deteriorating economy and keep its fragile public finances under control. • Government cohesion will be hindered by divisions in the ruling coalition, but the Economist Intelligence Unit expects it to remain in office. Mr Berlusconi has a comfortable parliamentary majority and the centre-left is in disarray. • GDP contracted by 1% in 2008. Our baseline forecast is that it will contract by a further 4.6% in 2009 and by 0.6% in 2010. • The fiscal deficit is forecast to rise from 2.7% of GDP in 2008 to 5-5.5% of GDP in 2009-10. The public debt/GDP ratio is expected to be about 120% by the end of 2010, up from 105.8% in 2008. • Much larger deficits cannot be ruled out as our forecast assumes that the minister of the economy, Giulio Tremonti, will resist pressure for tax cuts to boost the economy and interest rates do not rise sharply. • Inflation (EU harmonised measure) will average 0.6% in 2009 and 0.9% in 2010, well down on 3.5% in 2008, reflecting weak demand and lower commodity prices.

Information System Briefing

...Information System Briefing Boston’s Mobile Mammography Van has been helping women receive a free mammography for the past five years. This mobile service travels around Massachusetts with licensed technologists and radiologists on board. Since the beginning of the Mobile Mammography Van all paperwork and documentation has been done manually. “The current lack of a software system introduces risks due to potential regulatory issues, patient safety issues due to potential missed follow-up, as well as program risks due to potential loss of funding” (Wager, Lee, & Glaser, 2009, para. 9). Implementing a new software system will benefit the Mobile Mammography Van greatly. This paper is intended to identify the process for selecting and acquiring an information system, explain how the organizations goals drive the selection process, and identify the roles each organization’s stakeholders play in the selection process. Selecting and Acquiring an Information System When an organization is selecting and acquiring a new information system there is a great deal of planning and steps they must take to implement the system properly. The first step is to establish a project steering committee. “This committee’s primary function is to plan, organize, coordinate, and manage all aspects of the acquisition process” (Wager, et. al., 2009, pg. 150). After the committee has been formed the project goals should be outlines along with the scope of the project and committee. Many questions...

...BRIEFING PAPER This figure describes the superimposition of CPU and PC game sub-system technological evolution curves. According to the figure given by the graph, great changes in processor speed of CPU and the speed requirement of the PC game have taken place over past two decades. The CPU processor speed has accordingly increased nearly 350 times from almost100 MHZ in 1991 to over 3800MHZ in 2005. Meanwhile, the PC Game speed requirement increased nearly 300 times from 1996 to 2007. The CPU curve begins with the discovery of the professor speed of CPU could reach one million periods per second. At the starting of the curve, it is clear to see the relatively slow processor speed for the early few years from 1991 to 1996. Then, with more and more complex applications of computer; the requirement for the computational speed is increased rapidly, the slow phrase is followed by a steadily growth from 1996 to 2000. Then, there is a steep ascent from 2000 to 2005. I suppose that the CPU curve will increase continually with the development of the computer and high-speed network technology. In addition, the PC Game curve begins with the processor speed firstly reaches one million periods per second. Because of higher speeds mean faster data manipulation and increased computer performance resulting in enhanced user experience, especially during game play, therefore, the processor speed requirement of PC Game begins to increase sharply from 2000 to 2007 after a......

Briefing of Schindler

...market as well as safe keeping from becoming shipped off to concentration camps. As time goes on and the Nazi’s force the Jews into small walled-in areas referred to as ghettos. The only was to leave the ghetto was to have worker paperwork. Without your paperwork you were subject to consequences to include execution. With Schindler’s factory becoming known as a safe place, more people wanted to work for him in any capacity. With the influence of Stern and the increasing gravity of the situation in Krakow, Schindler seemed to become more protective over the Jewish especially his employees. A keen example of this is when Stern was placed on a cattle car to possibly go to a concentration camp because he forgot his work papers and Schindler was adamant in finding and saving him. Another example would be when the Nazi’s no longer had control over the Jewish and Schindler, although saving the lives of 1,100 Jews, wished that he could have saved even more. Schindler’s List is a movie based on a Nazi-Czech business man that profited and saved the lives of 1,100 Jewish people. The movie accomplishes this point by the evolution of Oskar Schindler throughout this movie. Beginning with him going to Krakow with little money and then with his “panache” as an entrepaneur and business man acquiring and, with Itzak Stern’s help as his accountant and plant manager, running a successful pan manufacturing company. Not only did this heavily profit Schindler it......

Briefing Report

...Briefing Report Ashley Jones SEC315 Professor Michael Tunick January 20, 2012 Abstract This essay investigates the security measures that are being undertaken by the Federal Protective Service to assure security to the general public. It evaluates these measures to determine if they are sufficiently comprehensive to combat a potential threat of a similar magnitude to the Oklahoma City bombing. In addition, the essay compares these security measures to those of the “John Hancock Tower” in Boston City. Further, it elucidates the weakness of Federal Protective Services in relation to security services provided at “John Hancock Tower”. According to the literature, the protocol of FPS usually has frequent security lapses that often leave the people vulnerable to bomb or terrorist attacks (Mearsheimer, J. J. 2007). Briefing Report The Federal Protection Service has been the people’s last hope against terror threat since the September 11. The police unit provides integrated security to federally owned buildings or properties. It is known to organize its security operations within the guiding principles of technical expertise, organizational excellence and proper stakeholder service. However, the recent trend of security lapses in their protocol has caused some panic among the general public as well as within the government quarters. For instance, only a few months ago in McNamara Federal Building that is situated Downtown Detroit, there was a serious bomb scare when it...
