DOD Releases Final Fort Hood Review

DOD Releases Final Fort Hood Review
Source: U.S. Department of Defense

The Department of Defense (DoD) released today the final review of the recommendations from the independent report “Protecting the Force: Lessons Learned from Fort Hood.”

The DoD will place a high priority on implementing recommendations that will strengthen policies, programs and procedures in the following areas:

  • Educating commanders about the symptoms of potential workplace violence and the tools available to them to address it;
  • Ensuring commander and supervisor access to appropriate information in personnel records throughout a service member’s career;
  • Improving law enforcement and force protection information sharing with partner agencies and among installations to ensure that all relevant personnel are aware of and able to analyze and respond to potential threats;
  • Expanding installations’ emergency response capabilities, to include enabling enhanced 911 to notify dispatchers of a caller’s location, mass notification and warning systems to guide installation personnel and emergency responders to an emergency, and a common operating picture to ensure that emergency responders have access to real-time information in a crisis;
  • Integrating force protection policy through the creation of a consultative and policy-making body which will bring together the various entities across the department with force protection responsibilities; and
  • Ensuring that we provide top quality health care to our service-members and our healthcare providers though the hiring of additional healthcare providers - particularly in the mental health field - and ensuring that healthcare providers receive appropriate post-deployment respite and dwell time.

The tragic shooting of military personnel at Fort Hood in November 2009 underscored the need for the DoD to review its approach to force protection and to broaden its force protection policies, programs, and procedures to go beyond their traditional focus on hostile external threats. The follow-on review final report recommends concrete actions across a range of issues that all contribute to the safety and health of our military forces.

    Thursday, 24th July 2014

    In a speech at the annual Thomson Reuters Compliance & Risk Summit Tracey McDermott of the UK Financial Conduct Authority spoke about the change in focus of the regulator towards corporate culture and the enforcement of personal liability by management.

    Thursday, 24th July 2014

    Information assets are in the hands of the right people to safeguard them but the wrong people to manage their exploitation concludes an influential new study. As reports continue to emerge of apparent corporate paralysis in the face of cyber security threats, Tim Buckley Owen wonders whether the emphasis hasn't swung too far in that direction, and sees opportunities for information professionals in helping to strike a balance between security in the cloud and effective data analysis for competitive advantage.
