If we look at the way our Founding Fathers originally set up our country's levels of government, we will see that many of the questions and/or concerns were addressed a couple centuries ago. I refer to the County Sheriff's authority and responsibilities. Instead of creating multiple new agencies, offices, and departments, we need to back up and look at what we already have. Though there is some stability in redundancy, 'excessive' redundancy leads only to confusion. The Sheriff should know the needs and resources of his county better than any bureaucrat or clerk at the Federal (even State) level possibly could. This is the person that should be the "point of contact" for any community - the person that was elected by that community, for the very purpose of representing them.
