Counterinsurgency and Policing


Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2018 in the subject Law - Criminal process, Criminology, Law Enforcement, grade: 100, , course: Independent Study, language: English, abstract: Terrorist activities, tactics and strategies are uncoordinated and asymmetrical. These conditions do not fit into traditional law enforcement models. Since 9/11 out of the 60 plots 43 where stopped by local law enforcement officers. The COIN warfare theory first championed by French Army Lieutenant Colonel David Galula has served as the foundation for the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps revision of the U.S. Counterinsurgency Manual. The theory's basic premise is that the government can only succeed when the population at large rejects the rebels, their message and works with authorities. A counterinsurgency strategy for law enforcement would require the establishment of a persistent presence, psychological operations that enables the community to discern facts and rumors, and carefully select, train and supervise law enforcement personnel suited for complicated tasks. Counterinsurgency (COIN) theory can be used as a crime control model that incorporates police practice and operations of crime control and anti/counterterrorism.
