Such an unprecedented attack of this magnitude on the unprepared nation shook the confidence of the people, impaired their sense of security and changed their view of the world around them. The events of that single day snatched the openness of American society. The new America after 9/11 is more cautious, much more suspicious and too much concerned about its security.
Introduction The events of September 11th 2001 have cause a major alteration in the world. After 9/11 many countries throughout the world have increased security in airports and country borders, and increased security in main areas of major cities. The biggest consequence of 9/11 however was the USA’s war on terror. The war on terror was started with the objective of recognizing, finding and destroying terrorists, denying sponsorships to terrorist organizations and defending people all over the world from future terrorist attacks. However, the USA’s war on terror has had a negative effect on many countries in the world as well as their own, and their citizens by creating animosity in the international community, causing a downturn in their own economy and their major allies, and ruining their international reputation.
The devastating tragedy of 9/11 left all of America mourning. The horrific event opened the eyes of Americans, the fact that America was not invincible shocked many. The realization that the country was not undefeatable led to drastic changes. Post 9/11 security was increased, racial profiling became common, and foreigners were misjudged. The threat of terrorist attacks changed American culture immensely; the devastation wakened the need for protection and a sense of security.

Government In times of Crisis Mayor Rudy Giuliani has earned great praise for the role he played in the response to the terrorist attack in New York on September 11th at the time, but he has also become the subject of heavy speculation regarding preparedness before the attack and aspects of the response afterwards. His major fault was in his immediate reaction of assurance because it was indeed lack of preparedness that could have led to the deaths of the first responders at the scene of the attacks. Another ill prepared aspect of the event was The Office of Emergency Management being in the World Trade Center therefore unable to coordinate efforts between police and firefighters for the rescue properly due to their own evacuation from the attacks at the time.

The challenges facing groups in law enforcement organizations in America include public policy, political, punishment, rehabilitation, crime victim, criminal investigation, and agency cooperation challenges (Stojkovic, Kalinich, & Klofas, 2012). Public policy is a critical challenge facing groups in law enforcement organizations in America. Since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, public policy has been on the downslide, causing major challenges for law enforcement groups. The reason terrorism creates a challenge to law enforcement groups is because society distrusts law enforcement in the wake of September 11, 2001.
