Introduction

In this essay I will be analysing the importance and use of command and control also I within a uniformed public service then I will go on to give bad and good examples of where command and control have been used. Command and control is one of the most important things in the uniformed services. Command and control is primary to the way in which the uniformed public services function. Without command and control the uniformed services would not be able to take control of situations which would require them to take control of, and make sure that the situation doesn't get out of hand so that lives are not lost. Command and control is important to the way in which the uniformed public services operate. It is the method by which they perform their tasks. Situations can require immediate and decisive action. Those responsible for command and control must be prepared, trained and practised in the necessary skills. ...read more.

Command and control helps commanders to make the most of whatever equipment they have - people, information, material, and, often most important of them all, time. Command and control could be used to exercise authority and directions by a fully designated commander over assigned and attached forces in the achievement of a task. Command and control functions are performed through an arrangement of personnel, equipment, communication, facilities, and procedures employed by a commander in planning, directing, coordinating, and controlling forces and operations in the accomplishment of the mission. This is important so that the team would know who is in command and also so that the commander shows his authority within the team and that they all are able to work together as a team.

Conclusion

The disaster was caused by a steward opening a side gate to let out someone when he shouldn't have opened it. This caused the fans with and without tickets being able to run into the caged stand.

This caused a rush of supporters through the gate into the stadium. The command and control in the Hillsborough disaster was really bad because the police were actually watching the fans enter the stand and not stopping them. The people who were crushed were visible in front of the police, who were at that moment beating the fans with their batons so the fans don't climb over the cage and into the pitch to safety from being crushed. The Hillsborough disaster showed that higher ranked officers could also make bad decisions. ?? ?? ?? ?? Gokhan Orman Unit 13 - Command And Control 671844 Assignment 1 - Task 2 1 ...read more.
