The paper looks at Charles Connolly's "The Role of Private Security in Combating Terrorism," where he reveals that local law enforcement agencies are not necessarily up to the task of protecting the average citizen. The paper discusses his solution of employing the services of private security contractors to supplement the effectiveness of current government-based security forces. The paper notes the criticisms against this proposal, examines Connoly's arguments and concludes that partnerships with private firms may well be the best path to improve national security.

From the Paper:

"In the United States, there has been a heightened sense of awareness of the potential for terrorism-induced danger since September 11, 2001. The attacks leveled against the United States on that day brought into focus some inadequacies in the state of security response and intelligence in the United States. It has prompted a number of initiatives of questionable Constitutional merit such as warrant-less wiretaps on American citizens and prisoners held in violation of the Geneva Convention. The desire to be safe has, in many cases, overridden common sense and has actually eroded the strength of the freedoms that were being protected."
