Please note that this is just a preview of a school assignment posted on our website by one of our clients. If you need assistance with this question too, please click on the Submit Your Instructions at the bottom of the page to get started.

In this week’s activity, you have explored the Web sites of the DHS Science and Technology Directorate and FEMA’s Building Science Branch. Although you are reading and learning about subordinate functions of these agencies, critical thinkers are compelled to consider what is not found on the written page. This is especially true as we are considering the ethical implications for use of technologies to provide defense and security.
For your assignment then, choose either DHS or FEMA as the agency you will explore; next choose 1 of the subordinate divisions for your selected agency. (Example: DHS; Chemical and Biological Division.) Examine your selected division’s roles, responsibilities, and capabilities for contributing to the security of the nation.
You will assume the role of inspector general, specializing in investigations but not necessarily technology. You have been assigned to provide a thorough and honest assessment of the selected division’s use of technology. You will draft a report in the format of your choice, addressed to the Chief of either DHS’ Science and Technology Directorate or FEMA’s Building Science Branch.
Assignment Guidelines
Address the following in 4–6 pages:
What is your selected division’s mission? Explain in detail.
Identify, describe, and explain 3–5 of the technologies commonly employed by this entity.
What is the stated purpose of the technologies?
What are the technologies actually used for?
Evaluate the merits and disadvantages of each technology. Explain.
Is the division using the technologies well or poorly? Explain in detail.
Provide well-defended arguments regarding each technology.
What current technologies are being developed?
Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.
In your examination, you should research beyond the agency’s and/or division’s official Web site and find at least 3 other credible resources such as testimony before Congress, U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) Reports, Congressional Research Service documents, academic journal articles, or thought pieces by legitimate persons (not anonymous bloggers, for example) challenging or supporting your selected office’s mission, or operations, etc..
As you look for these sources, you may also consider materials that reference the government, FEMA, or DHS without mentioning your division specifically. Just make the connection for the reader as to which elements from your sources apply to your examination and why. (For example, if a critic argues a certain type of technology is misused by the government, you might include or refute his perspectives after connecting them to the division you are exploring.) In some way—either woven into your entire report or addressed separately at some point—comment on the ethical considerations of the technologies under review. You do not have to take a side or make any type of judgment, rather offer your observations as something the DHS or FEMA and the selected division’s chief should keep in mind, and explain why.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
