 Ensuring public order and safety during the pandemic

This section will contain articles, studies, reviews and other materials of the project participants devoted to the topic - «Issues of organizing the activities of police units and other law enforcement agencies, in times of pandemic (global and local) dangerous viral infections, and in cases and threats of terrorist acts with the use of bacteriological weapons».
A promising direction for publications:
The global pandemic COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 has brought major changes to the police services of most countries around the world. The world has not faced an epidemiological threat of this magnitude in the last 100 years. However, despite the fact that at present, thanks to the measures taken, the virus spread has been stopped, in the opinion of the medical research community, this is only a temporary respite, and humanity will face dangerous virus pandemics many times in the coming years. In addition, a number of international safety experts have expressed opinions and forecasts that it is bioterrorism that will become one of the most active forms of committing terrorist acts in the very near future.
Even a superficial analysis of the situation during the pandemic COVID-19 in 2020-2021 showed that the law enforcement agencies of most countries were totally unprepared to perform tasks of maintaining public order and security under such conditions. Therefore, at present, quite relevant and of real, practical interest to specialists at various levels, are studies devoted to the organization of effective police services in conditions of bacteriological hazards of various levels and origins:
- performance of daily tasks to ensure public order and safety during the pandemic of dangerous viral infections;
- actions of law enforcement officers to control the observance of quarantine and other regimes associated with restrictions, both in individual cities and towns, as well as in major metropolitan areas and individual regions;
- tactics and principles of actions of police units during the elimination of consequences or the threat of terrorist acts with the use of bacteriological weapons.
It is important to remember that when working on materials on these issues, authors should not evaluate or make judgments about the causes and nature of these phenomena. This should be done by subject matter experts: doctors, scientists, etc. The task of our project is to examine the situation from the professional perspective, as specialists in law enforcement, public order and security, and in combating terrorism and extremism.
The requirements to the content and design of publications, the order of their placement and recommendations on copyright protection can be found in the section Contacts.

Police work in a pandemic
author - Roman Grishin, Russia
The global COVID-19 epidemic in 2020-2021 has clearly demonstrated that police services in most countries of the world are not prepared to deal with the threats of dangerous viruses, quarantine restrictions and the negative consequences in public life and the criminogenic situation caused by them. What conclusions, in the author's opinion, should be drawn from this situation, and what measures should be taken to change it and increase the readiness of law enforcement agencies to such situations in the future.
