Seminar - Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies Following Cataclysmic Events  

2:15pm - 3:15pm
While the country has made remarkable strides in preparing for and responding to major disasters--from hurricanes and floods to wildfires, tornadoes and more--there is another tier of destruction that we have been spared, witnessed in other parts of the globe. Earthquakes, tsunamis and pandemics all threaten a degree of damage and disruption whose enormity, immediacy and enduring impact will dwarf the effects of anything we have witnessed in the last half century. Were such cataclysmic events to occur in our country, whether by nature or at the hand of our enemies, the military would be called upon to supplement any number of functions normally borne by state, local, territorial or tribal governments. But before recovery can begin, security must be restored and maintained. No function of government, therefore, will be more important, or more compelling to reinforce, than law enforcement. How that support will be realized will be contingent upon how we prepare and, in particular, how we plan.

Room:  Justice (M Level)
