How to Make a Difference in the World

Posted by on 7:07 am in Blog | Comments Off on How to Make a Difference in the World

We may not possess super powers like those of comic superheroes but we can change the world one small deed at a time. Here are some inspiring ideas on how you can make a difference.   Learn the basic value of respect. A little respect goes a long way. Respect yourself. Respect everyone around you, and that includes your spouse and children, your immediate family members, your neighbors, your co-workers, the street vendors, and everyone you meet. Respect other people’s opinions, beliefs, culture and religion. This fundamental value is the actual key to end all battles, starting from the family and up to the international community. Instilling this value in our young ones ensures a better, brighter and more peaceful future. Appreciate the things that you have and be thankful for them. If we truly apply this simple principle in life, we would be a lot happier, more satisfied and content. Failure to do so causes so much greed, hate and destruction. Take, for instance, the environment. We should truly see and appreciate how important it is to protect and preserve nature, so that future generations will also be able to enjoy its generous bounty. We are making a difference when we recycle and limit our carbon footprints on the planet. Do what you can, however small it might be. Be active and take part in environmental campaigns, human rights campaigns and whatever you believe to be worth fighting for. Get yourself directly involved in voluntary community work such as cleaning up and planting trees for Earth Day, donating to humanitarian programs to feed the hungry, to shelter the homeless, or to sponsor the sick. To take things one step higher, you can join FBI LA Ca, a community service-oriented organization that aims to achieve and maintain a safer community.  ...

Keeping the Community Secure with FBI-LA CAAA

Posted by on 6:31 am in Blog | Comments Off on Keeping the Community Secure with FBI-LA CAAA

Nowadays, maintaining security in a community has become easier, thanks to advancements in technology such as mobile phones and the Internet. This means, even average citizens can already take part in preventing crime and securing their neighborhoods without solely relying on the police force. ‘Citizensas ‘Police’ There’s no better way to maintain safety in a community than taking part in it. Since 2011, the FBI Los Angeles Citizens Academy Alumni Association provides projects such as security awareness and training on how to respond to situations that law enforcement officers usually encounter. By doing this, they help promote a safe community. Each of their members is a graduate of the eight-week curriculum of the FBI Los Angeles Citizens Academy Association. During the training, the members from the different parts of society such as government, labor, medical and business sectors, and the media as well as minority, religious groups, and senior citizens learn about law enforcement. They also tackle challenges, resources, and limitations of the police force so they can act in accordance with the law. The FBI-LA CAAA members are regularly updated about crimes as well as recent and emerging issues of the community through periodic meetings and conferences. FBI LACAAA is not FBI As a separate entity from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the LA CAAA acts with transparency by taking into account the limitations of the federal police force. This is also the reason why the FBI-LA CAAA can proudly say that it cannot, in any way, be involved in malpractices that some authorities are accused in. This is because the organization is based and supported by the community where funding is directly taken from donations from the people. However, this does not mean that they are not working WITH the federal police. In fact, they promote honing strong ties with local law enforcements to make the community more...

Bringing Awareness and a Sense of Responsibility

Posted by on 1:47 am in Blog, Outreach | Comments Off on Bringing Awareness and a Sense of Responsibility

Bringing Awareness and a Sense of Responsibility The Federal Bureau of Investigation is a well-established law enforcement agency that aims not only to protect the citizens but to uphold the law at all times. On the other hand, most people are not aware of the limitations and responsibilities of an FBI agent. For this very reason why we have established the FBI LA CAAA. Educating people The members of FBI LA CAAA are all graduates of FBI LA CAAA curriculum which educates them about the role and function of the FBI. It also makes them aware responsibilities of the civilian community. Every citizen of the country is eligible to partake of the organization’s programs. It serves as a literacy campaign so that people would not be afraid of the FBI agents and work with them instead in keeping the peace and security of the community all throughout the country. Educating the civilian will help them understand how the law enforcement agency conducts its business. In this way they would know what their responsibilities are as a civilian and be aware of the limitations of an enforcer. This in return will decrease the fear experienced by the citizens towards enforcers. With less fear and more understanding about their rights and responsibilities, the citizens will then be more at ease and live a more secure and comfortable life. Helping the bureau When the people are educated on how the FBI conducts their business, it would be easier for the FBI to get on with their investigations. With proper coordination with the civilian community, the FBI will be able to solve cases easily and give justice to where it is due. In most cases, it is often the statements of the witness which are key in solving a crime. With people cooperating and doing their part it would be a lot easier and crimes will be...
