1. Privatization of Public Safety Programs.
One of the emerging trends in the delivery of government services is privatization. It offers the opportunity to improve service delivery and to save money.

Why or why not? What services will you recommend for privatization (if any)? Describe the decision-making process you used to reach your decision. Be specific and support your position with facts.
2. Ethics and Public Administration.
Define ethics. Are personal ethics absolute or do theydepend upon the situation? Explain the role of ethics in public safety administration. Do ethics have an impact on civil society?
3. Managing Information Resources.
Information is one of the greatest tools available to the public safety administrator. As technology improves, access to information improves. The volume and variety of data that can be gathered also increases. As a result, more and more personal data is collected and available in the various databases. This situation is going to be more of an issue in the future.How do we balance the rights of individual privacy against the need for information to protect the common good? In a previous discussion, we talked about the size of government and its impact on civil society. Are these related issues? Ultimately, how does the public safety administrator balance these two opposing positions? Which is more important?
4. Federalism and Public Administration
The federal system decentralizes political authority and this inevitably affects public administrationâ€™s operations at all levels of government. Administration accordingly occurs within a complex environment in which authority is shared among different levels of government and in which decision-making is fragmented. Explain or describe this in your own words. Provide an example to support your explanation. How does this complicate the process of public policy?
