UNIT VII RESEARCH PAPER 2 Abstract This research paper offers the practices of Weapons of Mass Destruction used by terrorist to inflict panic and harm to a large group of people, state, or country. It also details the countermeasures that interagency law enforcement and emergency managers use to communicate, engage, and deter terror attacks. This paper continues to explain how each agency works together for the same common goal of minimizing casualties and ending the threat. The paper will explain the different types of threats that terrorist might use such as biological, chemical or radiological to inflict the most pain. This terrorism is progressively the creation of Islamic radicals, who draw their motivation and orders from Syria or Iran and its growing band of satellite countries. This paper is an attempt to explain and support the understanding of the complex and multilayered relationship between law enforcement and emergency management. But most of all it will give examples of assignation with extremists and terrorist to include lone wolfs linked to Al Qaeda and Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

The answers were to upgrade our infrastructure and our security protocols. The main issues were our entry point to the U.S. (airports, ports, and borders). But now, we have homegrown radicalism and terrorist cells that are waiting for opportunities to attack again. Topography and Political Events Looking at google maps and seeing how much area needs to be surveillance for this political debate. The threat level increases and intensifies that much more. The area is roughly 260 plus acres, including plenty of low visibility throughout the park, increasing the threat level (google, 2019). Due to the topography and risk analysis, chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and etiological (CBRNE) come to mind. These types of terroristic threats will cause the most confusion and do the most harm. The current global challenge of CBRN, unfortunately, is
