Using the CSU Online Library, select an incident that interests you personally on the topic of public safety or homeland security. This case study must involve an ethical issue that you can examine from the perspective of what went wrong and the reasons why. Discuss it thoroughly.
Once you finish researching the incident, draft a case study that includes the following elements.
Write a short summary of the facts regarding the incident. This summary can usually be done in one or two paragraphs.
Provide an analysis of the case that must address the questions below.
The conclusion of your paper will be a short statement regarding your own thoughts of the incident. This is your reflection and will be based on your personal opinion and perspective. This section should not require more than one or two paragraphs. Process your thoughts carefully, and condense them into several meaningful and concise sentences.
Questions to address in the content section of your assignment:
Critically analyze the incident, and determine its impact on public safety, the unintended consequences of the incident, and the ability of the agency and the individual(s) to adequately perform their duties.
Review any long-lasting implications of the case.
What led up to this incident, and was it something that could have been addressed long before it happened? Who should have been expected to ensure it did not occur in the first place? Would you have handled it differently? Why?
What changes were made, if any, to ensure this type of incident would never recur in the future? Did the changes go far enough? In your opinion, have those changes been successful?
Your case study must be a minimum of two pages in length, not including the title page and reference page. You are required to use a minimum of one outside source. Your case study and its citations and references must be formatted according to APA Style guidelines.
