Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and CNA, 2013
Carefully planned security operations and multi-agency coordination before, during, and after a large-scale security event are paramount to local law enforcement’s ability to maintain a safe environment and to conduct a successful event. With this Planning Primer, law enforcement departments and agencies nationwide can benefit from the lessons learned and proven practices of other agencies. The detailed activities in the Planning Primer and the interactive Planning Toolkit serve as useful instruments for lead planners as they develop operational plans around the 18 core operational areas. By having solid plans in place, law enforcement will be prepared for incidents and can help to ensure public safety throughout event operations.
