Simeone, Matthew J.

In the past several years, the responsibility of our nation's law enforcement agencies has been expanded beyond everyday crime to include the threat of terrorism. The capacity of law enforcement to prevent terrorism, however, may be more limited than is generally acknowledged. America's long-term success in preventing terrorism may very well depend upon the extent to which law enforcement agencies engage in partnerships with the private sector. Virtual public-private partnerships offer policing agencies the ability to leverage large segments of our business and residential communities in the effort to keep our hometowns safe. In doing so, law enforcement can exponentially expand its network for disseminating and collecting information. With many law enforcement agencies throughout the United States developing intelligence capacity and moving towards intelligence-led policing, this enhanced capacity can lead to better intelligence products, better decision-making, and more effective policing. By enhancing intelligence-led policing, virtual public-private partnerships can help law enforcement agencies significantly improve the ability to prevent crime and terrorism, and lead to higher levels of public safety.
