    " Responding to a domestic disaster
    in an all-hazards approach is a key
    focus of local, State and Federal
    organizations. Hurricane Katrina
    highlighted the fact that a significant
    or catastrophic incident can quickly
    overwhelm the ability of local
    jurisdictions to carry out basic public
    safety functions. In extreme cases,
    entire regions can be left without any
    law enforcement services at all.
    A national plan would include teams
    that are trained, equipped, and ready
    for near-immediate dispatch. The
    structure of such a system should
    build on the success of similar
    program, such as US&R and DMAT.
    Divided according to existing FEMA
    regions, teams should be scalable,
    flexible, and self-supporting for
    a specific period of time. Team
    members should carry weapons, and
    have the authority to detain or arrest
    and use force, including deadly force,
    if necessary. They should operate
    with the same rights and immunities
    of officers in the affected state. LEDTs
    should also have ready access to the
    widest possible array of resources
    pre-positioned around the country to
    make them readily transportable to
    the incident site.
    The command structure should
    follow the National Incident
    Management System (NIMS), where
    the teams take their missions through
    the Unified Command Structure and
    the on-site incident commander.
    The teams should most likely
    leverage the EMAC system. These
    state-to-state compacts, which
    exist under the non-profit National
    Emergency Management Association
    (NEMA), cover liability, the honoring
    of law enforcement credentials
    from state to state, and financial
    reimbursement. However, there is
    a need to streamline existing EMAC
    procedures to enable the rapid
    deployment of LEDTs. "

    A Law Enforcement Deployment Team: May provide both
    response and recovery as well as prevention and protection
    support. The teams should be...

    Established consistent with FEMA regions.
    Comprised of no more than 500 personnel each, in modular
    Provide essential law enforcement support (e.g. patrol and
    crowd control).
    Provide advanced and specialized skills (e.g. SWAT).
    Include related emergency support personnel (e.g. communi-
    cations, logistics) capabilities.
    Stand alone as self-sufficient units capable of sustained op-
    erations for 14 days.
    Arrive at the disaster site with all necessary equipment
    (weapons, PPE, interoperable communications).
    Consist of modular components enabling complete teams or
    individual components to be deployed from multiple regions.
    Display standardized credentials and uniform identification
    that is recognized by all authorities.
    ”Typed” to meet minimum training, experience, equipment
    and performance standards.
    Report to the local Incident Commander, consistent with the
    NIMS and ICS.

    Sounds like the series, 'Jericho' don't it?
