I’m working on a criminal justice discussion question and need support to help me learn.
NIMS is a systematic, proactive approach to guide departments and agencies at all levels of government, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector to work together seamlessly and manage incidents involving all threats and hazards regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity. However, NIMS has become the subject of controversy to many practitioners based upon its limitations. For this activity, read the following:
- Renaud, C. (2012, June). The Missing Piece of NIMS: Teaching Incident Commanders How to Function in the Edge of Chaos. (Links to an external site.) Journal of the NPS Center for Homeland Defense and Security, 8(1). Retrieved from https://www.hsaj.org/articles/221
Respond to the following:
- Discuss the analogy used by Renaud, “the edge of chaos.” Is this a useful way to understand response efforts? Explain your position in detail using examples from the article. What alternative suggestions do you have to improve upon the issues surrounding the NIMS?
Requirement: 250+ words in APA (7th ed.) style, and include citations and references.
