    The Private Investigator Industry in the United States : The Present and Future

    Park Dong Kyun | Park ki beom | 2013, 9(5) | pp.41~56 | number of Cited : 7
    Modern society has in recent times relied almost exclusively on the police and other arms of the criminal justice system to prevent and control crime. But today the sheer volume of crime and its cost, along with budget cutbacks in the public sector, have overstrained public law enforcement agencies. One of the primary functions of private security personnel is investigation. Private investigation may be defined as the occupational activity performed by a private investigator who spends the majority of his or her time occupied with seeking information for a client who pays for such services. This study analyzed the private investigator system in the U. S. Allan Pinkerton started the first contract private security in the U. S. Pinkerton's early success helped define the role and abilities of the private security industry. Private investigators are individuals knowledgable in the methods and techniques of investigations, and they sell that expertise. In many cases, the client purchases the investigator's expertise and resources to acquire the desired information. Private investigators find facts and analyze information about legal, financial, and personal matters. All investigations, regardless of type or purpose, depend on the gathering of factual information. Gathering factual information is the main purpose fo any investigation. They offer many services, including verifying people's backgrounds, tracing missing persons, investigating computer crimes, and protecting celebrities. In general, private investigators are involved in locating missing persons, obtaining confidential information. and solving crimes. Many PIs work for businesses and lawyers while others work independently. Independent offices may be only one person operations while others may employ several operatives or contract work to part-time investigators. Private investigators may perform pre-employment background checks or look into a charge that someone has been stealing money from a company. They might be hired to prove or disprove infidelity in a divorce case. Private investigation combines the skills of both science and art. Private investigators must be mindful of the law when conducting investigations. They must have a good understanding of federal, state, and local laws, such as privacy laws, and other legal issues affecting their work. Investigators generally work alone, but they may work with others while conducting surveillance or following a subject. Many investigators enter the field after serving in law enforcement, the military, or federal intelligence jobs. These people, who frequently are able to retire after 25 years of service, often become private detectives or investigators as a second career. So, they must be knowledgeable of many things from good public relations to proper protocal, security principles and procedures, medical response, and how to aggressively control access to a crime/incident scene. Private investigators usually have some college education. However, many jobs do not have formal education requirements and private detectives and investigators learn on the job. Previous experience in investigative work can be beneficial. But education and training, coupled with common sense and good attitude, should be requisites for the position of private investigators. In most states, private investigators need a license. In Florida, for instance, there is double requirement - the applicant must be sponsored by a private investigator who works for a private investigative agency. The employment of private investigator is expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations through the year 2014. The future of security is positive. Demand for investigators is expected to be generated by fear of crime, increased litigation, and the need to protect confidential information and property.

    Developing on the Public Announcement Program of Emergency Management Capability in Local Governments

    유병태 | Keumho Oh | 2013, 9(5) | pp.57~70 | number of Cited : 10
    New paradigm to the advancement of technologies and policies for disaster management is required for building resilient and safe society which can protect life and properties of the citizens from the complex disaster environment. In these circumstances, enhancing the capacity of disaster management of local society has become important issues, which is based on the interactive system among central authority, local authority and citizens. The Disaster and Safety Management Basic Act prescribes that local government should announce the emergency management capacity in public. However, It does not describe in detail which items should be announced by local government. In this study, the public announcement items designed for explaining the emergency management capacity of local government are suggested. The conceptual framework of public announcement system is categorized into 4 stages, such as assessing the vulnerability, indexing the emergency management capacity, evaluating and improving the capacity, and participating of local society. The 9 index categories are suggested; (1) understanding the characteristics of disaster in the local area, (2) disaster management system, (3) preparation of disaster management plan, (4) disaster mitigation project, (5) logistics of emergency resources, (6) emergency operation system, (7) preparation of disaster response plan, (8) participating and sharing education/training/information, (9) assessing the outcomes based on the goal. And 58 detailed index under the 9 categories are suggested. This study provides some examples that show how the suggested index can be used for assessing the emergency management capacity. It is expected that the enhancement of emergency management capacity of local society can be achieved by the efforts of local government analyzing and improving the vulnerability as well as the participation of local society who recognize the emergency management capacity of their area announced by the local government.

    Analysis of the Characteristics of the River Bed Variation for Gagok Down Stream Considering Flood Season

    Maeng, Seung-jin | 이승욱 | 황길순 and 1other persons | 2013, 9(5) | pp.103~116 | number of Cited : 4
    In this study, the long-term runoff of Gagok’s downstream was estimated using SSARR (Stream Synthesis and Reservoir Regulation), a hydrology model, while change in the riverbed was simulated using RMA-2 and SED-2D to predict future River Bed Variation under the assumption that changes in the flow velocity of the upper stream and past discharge due to the creation of general development estate for a breakwater of Hosan Port and LNG production plant in the estuary of Gagok Stream will occur in the future. Parameters of SSARR model should be calculated through verification with the observed runoff volume. However, since no observation data is available on the water system, the parameters of the Pyeong Chang River basin with reliable observation data and similar physical characteristics to those of the watershed were applied. In addition, the daily mean runoff on the previous year was calculated by simulating daily runoff from 1972 to 2011, and flood discharge estimated through flow regime alternation analysis was used as the boundary condition. Based on survey data, terrain data, the input data of a hydraulic model was constructed, and the downstream boundary condition was calculated at EL.14.0m by means of a trial error method. Results of the hydraulic model analysis showed that the maximum value of mean flow velocity by cross section was 1.16m/s, occurring in the section where analysis begins, and the minimum value was 0.31m/s, which was simulated in the downstream. Results of the River Bed Variation analysis using SED-2D showed minimal change in the behaviors of the right bank in the section where analysis begins. Sedimentation aspects of the longitudinal section in the downstream also showed a tendency to decrease. These results point to the conclusion that the decision to include or exclude sedimentation of flood discharge introduced from the upper stream has a significant effect on River Bed Variation. Accordingly, it is necessary to conduct an analysis of the River Bed Variation due to the construction of a general development estate for a breakwater at Hosan Port and the LNG production plant by securing observation data constantly in the future, which will in turn help prepare measures to mitigate damages caused by floods.

    Hyosang Lee | Jung Sung Heuk | Hojin Lee | 2013, 9(5) | pp.117~136 | number of Cited : 0
    The risk of natural disaster has been increasing due to the effects of climate change and abnormal regional climate, such as flood and earthquake. The need of a risk management system is raised to protect architectural heritages from those risks. In this study, flood risk of Changkyeong palace, Korea, is assessed using SWMM(Strom Water Management Model) with rainfall scenarios(probabilistic rainfall: 100, 200 and 500 return period and observed extreme rainfall of 1942, 1964, 2001 and 2010). The flood risk for architectural heritage is presented as the degree of inundation risk. these results are used to build up a flood risk management for architectural heritage of Changkyung palace. Although the lower part of Changkyung palace are inundated, the major area which the heritages are located, are in low risk of flooding. The flood risk management system, which is based on scenarios analysis in this study, suggests a systematical approach to deal with the risk of the flooding. It will be used as a fundamental management tool for architectural heritages.

    Theories of Explaining Causes of Large Scale Blackouts: Current Literature and a Future Research Framework

    Park, Hyunsoo | 2013, 9(5) | pp.153~186 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Recently large scale blackouts have been a global issue to be addressed. Korea also faces highly unlikely but catastrophic large scale blackouts due to the complexity of its interconnected grid systems. There are different explanations on the causes of large scale blackouts in different fields. At first, therefore, this article categorizes them as techno-economic approaches and complex & network theories. The latter observe the cascading outage itself as a physical phenomenon independent of the social organization of technological events, while the former searches for the causes of large scale blackouts in the physical structure of interconnected transmission systems and market design. Because they do not deal with organizational and institutional problems in their explanations, this paper includes organizational & institutional approaches – Normal Accident theory, High Reliability Organizational theory, and New Institutionalism – to explain social causes of large scale blackouts. Finally, a theoretical framework is outlined that makes an attempt to synchronize different theories in different fields to show multi-dimensions of explaining large scale blackouts and to guide future policy direction.
