Welcome to Volume Two of Pracademic Affairs!  We are excited to continue this important forum for practitioners and practitioner-scholars.  As the threat environment continues to evolve, learning best practices and approaches from our colleagues can only bolster our capabilities in the face of these threats. 

In “Embedding Meteorologists into Emergency Operations,” Julie Malingowski, Dr. Cameron Carlson, Dr. Linda Kiltz, and Nicole Jacobs examine previous disaster events where having onsite meteorological services provided emergency management personnel and leaders the critical information required to make data-driven decisions.

Patrick Lorzing discusses US Customs and Border Patrol’s (CBP) Cost-Wise Readiness initiative that addresses the cost of equipment operation and maintenance using best practices from industry to provide system readiness at the best cost in “Securing America’s Borders Through the Lens of Cost-wise Readiness.” 

In “Integrating Preparatory Consequence Management and Law Enforcement Operations During ‘Left of Boom’ Terrorist Threats,” Scott J. Glick offers a new planning approach to integrate cohesively operations to maximize government agencies’ ability to stop terrorist activity while minimizing the potential consequences of those efforts are unsuccessful.

Finally, Pracademic Affairs remains committed to publishing work that addresses the current state of emergency management, homeland security, and security management issues at the practitioner-scholar, or “Pracademic,” level.  We welcome submissions at any time and will begin the review process as manuscripts are received.  For additional submission information please visit https://www.hsaj.org/pracademicaffairs/submission-guidelines.
