Community policing for students
The National Police Mission under the Bureau of Police Research & Development (BPR&D) has prepared a plan proposal on ‘Community Policing for Students’ on the basis of the student police cadet model of Kerala, for implementation in selected states during the Twelfth Five Year Plan on pilot basis.
The proposal prepared by BPR&D has been received in the Ministry of Home Affairs. Its implementation is subject to availability of funds, consent of state governments and acceptance of other agencies, who are proposed to be engaged in the project implementation, according to Mullappally Ramachandran, Minister of State for Home Affairs.
William Radasky and Peter Vincent Pry point out that the EMP Commission report was a collaborative effort between “the Intelligence Community…the military services…the National Nuclear Security Administration laboratories…the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security,” all of which concluded that the US is unprepared for an EMP attack.
An EMP is a high-intensity burst of electromagnetic energy caused by the rapid acceleration of charged particles. An EMP can change the magnetic field in the earth’s atmosphere to disrupt electronic devices by a pulse flowing through electricity transmission lines, overloading and damaging transmission distribution centers.
