Robert recently drafted a key piece of legislation (see Proposed Legislation link at www.specialagenttraining.cfsites.org). The assembly bill advocates for greater accountability, waste reduction and cost savings innovations in California’s State government and reinforces the Attorney General’s mandate. Advancing the reduction and prevention of crime consequently increases peace to produce a greater quality of life for all Californians. Public safety, education, health, and economy are interdependent. The bill will enable critical peace making partnerships within California to prevent or reduce crime while simultaneously reinforcing or creating conditions favorable for optimal personal and industrial development. In addition, the Ethics panel created by the bill will assist the State to maximize resources, prevent waste, and expand justice by using an innovative forum funded entirely by independent wealth donated to the State and managed by the Panel. Jackson puts forth the bill citing it is a pilot for the institutionalization of a Department of Peace, which eventually will be implemented nationally after States catch on. He says a Department of Peace positioned alongside the Department of war will serve in restoring the enforcement of existing protocols for determining when military actions are legally permissible, but also ensure that more progressive conflict resolution tactics are properly used to support the best possible foreign policies that achieve greater peace as a result. He said, “when accountability is absent, often, but not always, integrity is more vulnerable.” Clearly, preventing corruption and error driven decision making wherever such problems occur can save lives.
