Terrorism has common elements with ordinary crime but further raises the challenge for policing. One of the most significant challenges focuses on how limited police resources can be employed to fight crimes comparatively exceptional and which, in some cases, have national andglobal effects. Due to the urgency of dealing with terrorism, counterterrorism policies have acquired more relevance and needed more resources. Also, the police departments have been required to adjust their strategies to deal with the threat better. Thus, it can be purported that labeling terrorism as a crime that can be committed domestically has altered policing. It has then countered the widespread and false notion that the federal government is not concerned about involving the police in tackling terrorism. Furthermore, it has helped channel more resources to the policing department to fight terrorism, which has made their tactics more effective (Schanzer et al., 2018).On the other hand, labeling terrorism as a crime that can be committed domestically has also increased cooperation among local agencies and state law enforcement agencies. Thus, policing has been made more effective through technical assistance, training, forensic science services, and specialized services such as bomb squad. It has also been helping with crimes defined as high-technology. In this way, policing has been able to respond with technical help, and this has made tackling terrorism easier since there is access to more access to information which is transferred to the agencies above such as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), curbing the crime early (Chadwick, 2020).Racial profiling denotes discriminatory practice by law enforcement officials aiming people for suspicion of misconduct constructed on their ethnicity, race, national origin, or religion.
