Tactical Operations

Tactical Operations unit is an elite team that are trained to perform high-risk operations that fall outside of the abilities of regular officers, including serving high-risk arrest warrants, explosive devices, hostage rescue, counter-terrorism, and engaging heavily-armed criminals. They are often equipped with specialized weapons including assault rifles, submachine guns, shotguns, stun grenades, and high-powered rifles for snipers. They also have specialized equipment including heavy body armor, entry tools, and armored vehicles. Throughout this paper we are going to give a general overview of these tactical teams. Tactical teams were developed from a number of cases in law enforcement history that came to a head in the 1960’s. The Los Angeles police department realized it needed a team specializing in high risk situations. This realization came from an examination of the way in which the LAPD handled the Watts Riots which resulted in six days of over three thousand arrests. The LAPD and other police departments also needed a way to combat sniper attacks such as the sniper incident in Austin, Texas in 1966 in which the only people capable of returning long range fire were civilians armed with hunting rifles. An LAPD officer name John Nelson introduced the idea of a specialized police unit to an Inspector Daryl Gates. Gates built the original SWAT team with 15 four-man teams. Each of the men originally involved in SWAT were volunteers from patrol officers, and all had prior military experience. Other Tactical Operations teams developed from or to aid SWAT teams, such as negotiations and bomb squads.
The components of the Tactical Operations Divisions are SWAT, Negotiations, Bomb Squad, Dive Team, and K-9 Units. Each component has a special purpose but each is essential to the others. Having different teams for different needs allows each…...

Tactical Leadership is developed by using previous experiences to analyses and implement specific actions that need to be taken to achieve the organizations mission. Tactical Leaderships center of influence is as small as individual and as large as a battalion. Company and Battalions are organizational and thus Organizational Leadership must also be used at that level, but without Tactical Leadership that was developed earlier, failure is inevitable. Tactical Leadership can be viewed as a corner stone of Organizational Leadership. Tactical Leaderships is often influenced and shaped but Organizational Leadership due to the implementation of policies and procedures. Tactical Leadership must apply the not only the leadership principles but also human needs to those being lead. Organizational Leadership effects the organization in establishment of policies, standard operation procedures(SOPs), and organization norms. Organizational Leadership like Tactical Leadership is ever evolving, but without the defined parameters establish thru policies, SOPs, and norms.

Conclusion Wal-Mart’s culture is as unique and distinctive as possible considering the mammoth that it has grown into today. Usually firms even of a small and medium company find it hard to maintain and build good customer service but Wal-Mart has always had it as its foundation and till today preaches and practices exemplary customer service. Wal-Mart’s global expansion was achieved through a combination of new store construction and acquisitions. This strategy has given them excellent market penetration and opportunities for future development. Wal-Mart’s operations throughout Central America, North America, Latin America, Asia and Europe can be viewed as a solid foundation with many promising areas for further growth. Through this solid growth, its diversity initiatives from globalization should have grown just like its business. Unfortunately, Wal-Mart is in constant struggle with its diversity issues are evident in the market place. Research suggested several ways Wal-Mart may tackle its diversity initiatives. Whether they follow suit is another chapter to the research. References Ivanoevich. (2007). Human Resource Management. The McGraw-Hill Companies. ISBN: 9780073137117. Wal-Mart. (2009).

...been known for how well they keep the ball and how they rarely lose it, but to be able to make sure that they are this good they have to have a high amount of skill to ensure you firstly see the right pass, and secondly that you execute the right pass. And another reason teams such as arsenal do this is they spend the first 60 minutes of a game wearing a team out by passing the ball around them, and then with 30 minutes to go they bring on players like Theo Walcott who is possibly the fastest player in the premiership and they just give the ball to him and let him run with it. 8.10 | Technical analysis: game plan | 8.10 | Technical analysis: game plan | Edexcel | GCE Physical Education: | The Critical Performer | Unit 2 | Tactical Analysis | Task: 2.4 Ex: 2 | Name: | Institution: | Date:10/12/2011 | Objective: To review a game plan for a single match – pre- and post-. | Date 25.9.2011 | Opposition/ Context: Bredhurst juniors v.

For starters they were the same as us in that they like to use their two wingers, but they mainly play the ball to their right winger, which was a worry for us, because our usual left back had......

Tactical Leadership Vurses Organizational Leadership

...Tactical Leadership and Organization Leadership utilize the same principles of leadership in order to meet the goals of mission accomplishment. I believe that organizational leadership is the basis and is achieved with the use of three basic principles. Basic leadership skills and competencies, policies and procedures and the overall organizational mission needs. Company and Battalion levels are considered organizational levels. After completion of your required leadership courses this is where you will continue to training in order to mold yourself and your soldiers into a team that will be able to support the unit’s mission no matter what it may be. The organizational mission could vary from unit level training, natural disaster assistance and go as far as combat. The first thing we as leaders need to take into effect is the organizational mission, both in peace time, tactical training and combat. This will set the tone for required training needed to be an effective leader in order to support the unit at the organizational level as well as the tactical level. I believe that Tactical Leadership is developed from previous experiences obtained through training performed at the organizational level. Everything we do as leaders is in preparation to support the organization at the unit level in peace time as well as at the tactical level during war, or tactical training. In order for this to work effectively leaders must follow set standard operating procedures...

Bank of Tactical Mini Caselets

...Bank of tactical mini cases and suggested approaches to problems Case Study – Beckett Organics John Beckett enjoys vegetables, so much so that he has given up his full-time job as a lawyer to concentrate on growing and marketing organic vegetables. He started growing vegetables 20 years ago in his back garden and eventually became fully self-sufficient in supplying vegetables for the family. Partly bored with his legal job and tempted by an attractive severance package, John decided he would try to establish his own vegetable supply business. Eighteen months ago he looked around for two fields to lease in which he could grow organic vegetables. Organic products including vegetables, is a growth market in the UK. Growers must adhere to strict guidelines in order to gain organic certification. Increasing awareness of the problems associated with many pesticides and fertilizers, coupled with an increased interest in healthy eating habits and ‘wholesome’ food, has meant that many consumers are now either purchasing or interested in purchasing organic vegetables. This is true not only of household customers, but in addition, many restaurants are using the lure of organic produce to give them a distinctive edge in the market place. All this has meant that many of the larger supermarkets in the UK have begun to stock more and more organic produce from what was a relatively specialized market in the 1990s; the market has grown to where overall organic produce accounts...
