How do you acquire the ability to respond proportionately to incidents of community tension? Who should aggregate early warning indicators to identify potential issues? Where is the responsibility for ensuring that emancipatory security practices safeguard tension and promote accurate analysis without subjecting communities to excessive surveillance and control? This thesis demonstrates the sustainability required to create a paradigm shift in the management and application of tension monitoring by the police. Achieved through broadening the current discussions of early warning and tension monitoring, an evaluation and application of a systems based pragmatic approach is presented to address and resolve tension. The method codifies an enhanced multi-criteria risk selection tool, reporting on and triaging incidents, whilst building resiliency through community mobilization. The relevance of security, agency and community has been streamlined through collaborative inquiry enhancing best practice. Communities and stakeholders are integrated into the response, with specific application to Canadian Indigenous and human security issues. The potential for improved situational intelligence and operational decision-making is augmented using heuristic models of analysis. Based on applied systems thinking the research explored the mapping of leverage points to fully consider informed responses to complex situations. The impact of this research is directly relevant to operational policing and non-government organisations that work with Indigenous people and, more broadly, all communities experiencing conflict.
