A recent example of this occurrence is how terrorists had planned to exploit a loophole in security by using liquid explosives on aircraft, despite the stringent security reforms post 9/11. Laws enforcement in London in September 2006 discovered the intended scheme and as a result responded by introducing new controls on liquids for air travellers (Clarke and Newman, 2006, p …show more content…
Local police officers are best placed within the very communities they have a duty to protect, to engage and foster relationships with residents, business owners and leaders in communities. Who better than local police to recognise anomalies and irregular changes in the streets in which they patrol? Not only are local law enforcement officers perceived as those who initially respond to terrorist threats or acts, but they are also in the right place to potentially prevent terrorism. Based on mathematics alone local law enforcement officers in Australia are more likely than members of ASIO (Australian Security Intelligence Organisation) to cross paths with terrorists (Kelling & Bratton, 2006, para. 2 & 7).

    The COPS Office mission is to advance public safety through community policing ("COPS Office: About COPS").” One reason community policing is effective as a counter-terrorism tool, is that terrorists often commit other crimes as they build their forces and gather money. Many, if not most, terror groups operating within the United States are funded primarily by criminal activities. Identity theft, money laundering, drug trafficking and fraud are the most common forms of crime used by these groups. According to the RAND Corporation the greatest problem facing local and state agencies, is lack of personnel. These agencies are finding it to be harder and harder to find and hire individuals that are both capable and possess the qualifications needed.…

    Police rely on the community to report crime and provide vital information that is necessary for them to fight crime and address community concerns, and the community relies on the police to curb disorder and help in times of emergency. Subsequently, the primary goal is working cooperatively with individual citizens, groups of citizens and both public and private organizations to resolve issues which potentially affect the livability of specific neighborhoods, areas, city or country as a whole.
