The community preparedness program was originally designed by retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Maxwell Clay Bailey, who helped plan the U.S. military campaign in Afghanistan. During the first test run of the program in Alexandria, Bailey said the assessment teams tried to look at every feature of a community through the eyes of a terrorist or criminal to spot vulnerabilities in both the private and public sectors. In similar week-long assessments, beginning this month, critical infrastructure, including schools, water plants, roads and city halls, will be evaluated in the 15 cities with an eye toward crime, terror and disaster soft spots. The program is funded by a $2.4 million Kentucky Office of Homeland Security grant and executed through the Department of Criminal Justice Training. Fort Wright Police Chief Dan Kreinest said he welcomed the objective scrutiny of his city.

"We will provide them with a list of potential terror (targets) or problems and the assessment team will go through and spend a week here in Fort Wright and make recommendations to us of improvements we can make," Kreinest said. State officials said teams will use a nationally developed community risk assessment method, which has been modified to meet the needs of smaller Kentucky communities. About $600,000 in funding is also available for suggested improvements, officials said.



"It finds out where a community's vulnerabilities are and it offers a method, and in some instances funding, to make them stronger," said Department of Criminal Justice Training Commissioner John W. Bizzack. Matter like land taxes search, land title search and council property search all of them require the services of licensed conveyancers to go through the complex legal process without much hassles.

It is quite advisable to hire experienced licensed conveyancer rather than following ‘do it by you’ procedures. The resources are available online and quite useful and you can shortlist a few conveyancers in sydney who are experienced. A conveyancer is a specialist lawyer who specializes in the legal aspects of buying and selling real property, or conveyancing. A conveyancer can also be (but need not be) a solicitor, licensed conveyancer, or a fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives.

Communities will receive state certification after program completion, but assessment teams will periodically return to monitor progress. Each community is eligible to receive up to $10,000 in state aid to help pay for suggested improvements. Five years ago, Newport Central Catholic won the Touchstone Energy All "A" Classic boys' state basketball tournament with hot-shooting guard Ronny Dawn leading the way. The Thoroughbreds have several good shooters on this year's team and they defeated Barbourville, 63-53, in the quarterfinals of the small-school tournament on Friday at Eastern Kentucky University.
