Preventing and Responding to Child Abuse at Church

"Jimmy" joined the church a year ago. Before long, he volunteered to teach a Sunday School class and got to know eight-year-old “Peter.” Things started innocently. A hug at the end of class. Gifts for Peter. Lots of extra attention. And then it happened. Jimmy took advantage of Peter. Since Sandusky and the scandals in the Catholic Church, the issue of sexual abuse has shifted to the forefront of our collective mind. Many churches are poised for action but unsure of what action to take. In On Guard, Deepak Reju examines why child predators target churches and offers eleven straightforward strategies to protect children from abuse and to help young victims recover if it does happen. While On Guard does provide practical help for building a child protection policy, it provides much more. Full of pastoral wisdom, On Guard recognizes that the church’s response to abuse must be more comprehensive—in line with her calling—than a simple legal policy or clinical analysis. On Guard moves church staff and leaders beyond fearful awareness to prayerful preparedness with an actionable plan. Church, be on guard! Child abuse can happen anywhere, and we need a plan for how to prevent and respond to it. What’s yours?

Oh, Oh Canada! who Stands on Guard

The Author examines the current state of the Canadian Forces, after what he describes as four decades of malignant neglect, and concludes that it is not capable of executing the roles and tasks assigned under the government's policy as outlined in the Defence White Paper 1994. Furthermore, he examines the Canadian foreign policy, from which defence policy is derived, and concludes that it does not address the current and future threats to Canada and Canadians. The threats to Canada today and in the future are explored in detail and the means to counter them are examined. The author also explores the relationship the Canadian military has to the UN, NATO, and our closest ally the US. He finds that all of them need serious revision. However, to do so a complete and detailed analysis of our foreign policy is necessary in the new world of disorder following the tragic events of 9/11. Internal and external threats are revealed and discussed as well as how to deter them. Coleman explains why the current series of town hall meetings across the country is wholly inadequate and calls for a major foreign policy review. This is necessary in order to respond correctly and adequately to the US request for participation in the Missle Defense System. Also, in his view, our traditional interface with the UN, and NATO, particularly where peacekeeping is involved needs revision. He calls for necessary changes in the Department of National Defence Headquarters (NDHQ) structure and the military organization across the country. He explains why NDHQ needs to be disintergrated and replaced with a dual reporting system to the minister. Further, he presents rational arguments for the "real" unification of the three military forces into a "marine" like structure in order to respond appropriately and adequately to international terrorism and international violence that is on the rise. He goes further and outlines a new organizational structure that reduces overhead, executives, commands, and management levels in order to truly make the military and headquarters more efficient, effective, and economical. He is clear that only by taking these measures will we regain the respect of our allies and our enemies as well as increase our influence in the international forums where it has been slowly eroding. The transfer of search and rescue and VIP operations to private industry will free up military billets for military functions and generate jobs and profits for private industry in these roles. These tasks, in his view, are essentially non-military tasks. Military search and rescue and VIP flights can be handled by the Marines. Also, he believes that peacekeeping should be transferred to DFAIT where the responsibility lies with more emphasis on early intervention so that technical experts, humanitarian efforts, medical assistance, law, order, and justice can be maintained rather than re-constructed after civil war or worse has destroyed the infrastructure and institutions. Peacemaking, however, should remain the responsibility of DND where the new structure, the new equipment, and the new training will improve our current delinquent approach to the problem. The Reserve will be tasked with the role of the defence of Canada which will give it purpose, finances, training, equipment, and a structure to effect it which currently does not exist. Coleman makes a compelling case for the review of foreign defence policy and the restructuring of the Canadian military. He exposes the problems and proposes solutions. He takes no prisoners! In his review it becomes clear that Canada and Canadians no longer "stand on guard".

The Business of Private Security

Author: Milton Lipson

Publisher: Crown

ISBN: N.A

Category: Political Science

Page: 246

View: 607

A descriptive analysis of the industry by a specialist in security and investigation. The author begins by explaining why the industry is very much a product of its history, tracing the sorting out, over two centuries, of private versus public police functions. His analysis covers the principal categories of private security. The typical uses and abuses of security guards are discussed. Personnel and training practices are examined and criticized. In background and experience, fraud investigators are seen as contributing greatly to the reputation and effectiveness of the industry. The armored car segment is generally effective, with most losses due to failure by employees to follow prescribed procedures. Need is seen for improved security equipment - especially in alarm systems. Lipson is most critical of the lack of private security legislation. He concludes that there is a need for an institute for private security, independent of the industry, for research, evaluation, as a teaching facility, and as an aid to congress in suggesting regulatory legislation.

We Stand on Guard for Whom?

Lloyd Axworthy, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, rose to international prominence in the mid-1990s for his comprehensive campaign to ban the use of anti-personnel landmines, which led to the signing of the Ottawa Treaty in 1997 by 122 countries and his own nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. In this wide-ranging lecture, Axworthy reflects on liberal values, Canadian politics, and the rise of U.S./Canadian border issues since the terrorist attack on the United States in September 2001. Axworthy's distinctive voice shines through with personal anecdotes about his life in politics and his thoughts on Canada's sometimes uneasy relations with its southern neighbour and largest trading partner. Axworthy addresses many troubling issues, including the conflict in Afghanistan where Canadian soldiers potentially contravened Canada's international treaties by handing over prisoners to the U.S. He also discusses Canadian territorial sovereignty in the context of U.S. 'homeland security,' as well as international inaction on conflicts in Africa that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. Dr. Axworthy delivered Liberals at the Border in March 2002 as the sixth annual Senator Keith Davey Lecture at Victoria University in the University of Toronto.
