My topic will center on the effect of counterterrorism funding on policing strategies. I want to take an organizational approach to answering my question and look at how the relationship between the federal and state government affects organizational behavior. It seems to me organizations want to behave in a certain way and the question is do they change their thinking or just their approach based on their environment or outside influences. I would like to look at this question in the context of terrorists attacks on New York and London both in the 1990's and the 9/11 attack on New York and the 2005 London attacks.
