President Trump has renewed his promise to keep the United States secure, in a strong tweet, as the caravan of migrants moving towards the southern border continues to push forward,

“I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!”

People in the caravan, mostly from Latin American countries, such as Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico are claiming to look for a more improved life, in America. Honduras is the country where the migrant caravan originated, and those walking away from their homeland speak of escaping poverty and violence.

Many individuals in the migrant caravan intend to seek asylum when they arrive at the U.S. border, however, security in the U.S.A. is now at its highest. In order to weed out legitimate from non-legitimate foreigners, there are strict rules to follow and all entrants into the U.S. must apply to enter legally.

In a nation where parties are divided on their policies of illegal immigrants accessing the United States’ borders, the prime responsibility of the Department of Homeland Security is to ensure the American nation is safe and secure. The same rule applies to all: everyone must go through the correct immigration process. Hidden amongst the caravan of migrants is known to be dangerous gang members, rapists, kidnappers, and criminals who disguise themselves within the crowd hoping to find loopholes and sneak through the lawful system.

U.S. officials have confirmed that Homeland Security will be supported by U.S. troops to assist with the attempted invasion. It has been reported that 800 soldiers are being ordered to offer “logistical support”. Press details suggest there are 2,100 National Guard troops presently helping Homeland Security in the Southern border area.

Secretary of Defense, James Mattis and Secretary of Homeland Security, Kristjen Nielsen are closely overseeing the situation.

Studies in the UK, have demonstrated the benefits for Police using Body Worn Cameras. Developed as a tool to improve effectiveness and safety, the body-worn cameras have helped increase confidence, not only among law enforcement but with the public at large as well.

According to reports, 93% of officers acknowledge the body-worn cameras are useful to help gather accurate evidence. The majority of law enforcement officials feel strongly that the body-worn cameras ought to be a compulsory feature when policing.

As the use of body-worn cameras is rapidly growing among police departments, UK studies have shown that when such devices are deployed there is a 59% reduction in use-of-force incidents by officers wearing them and a 33% reduction in complaint allegations.

The de-escalation of anti-social behavior in general and fewer assaults on police officers is a key result of the body-worn camera being attached to the police officers uniform. There are lesser allegations made against police officers due to the review of performance at incidents.

Key consideration factors of the body-worn cameras are highlighted under privacy protection for members of the public record, as well as how to provide the public with access to recordings. There is also a discussion on policies related to when the officers turn the body-worn cameras on and off.

Each device is encrypted with no feature that allows deletion or edited and footage can be stored under data protection for a specific period of time before it is permanently removed from the data systems.

Due to the capabilities of these popular digital evidence-management devices, law enforcement and police body-worn cameras are forecast to increase worldwide.

A recent bill has been signed by President Donald Trump, after being passed by the US House and Senate, which allows disabling or shooting down of drones that pose a threat to structures and proximities inside U.S. territories.

The bill, labeled by U.S. Congress, “Preventing Emerging Threats Act of 2018,” is designed “to assist the Department of Homeland Security in preventing emerging threats from unmanned aircraft and vehicles and for other purposes”.

Strong support is demonstrated from The White House Administration, for national security reasons; the bill includes the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ), the necessary legal authority “to detect, track, and mitigate threats from small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)”.

The safety of the National Airspace System is one of the highest priorities to the United States of America, and this legislation will also enable continued “development of the commercial drone industry” while additionally, “protecting privacy and civil liberties.”

A recent press statement from White House Press Secretary reveals the urgent necessity of development of “a legal framework that protects the public from nefarious uses of this technology, such as facilitating terrorist attacks, conducting espionage, or facilitating other criminal activities such as illicit surveillance, interfering with the safe operation of aircraft, interfering with law enforcement operations, delivering contraband inside prisons, or smuggling drugs or other harmful materials across our Nation’s borders”.

A released document informs the public, past Federal laws inhibited the Federal Government’s “ability to fully evaluate and use essential detection, tracking, and mitigation technologies to counter these rapidly advancing threats”.

Preventing Emerging Threats Act of 2018 will open up opportunities for committees of jurisdiction to work together with the US Administration and others, to ensure “safe integration of drone technology”.
