Rules of Engagement Policy

I could use a hand.  Can you please ask if any of our fellow alumni might have a "rules of engagement" policy (use of force) dealing with multiple separate jurisdictions coming together for a large event?  The RNC is coming to Tampa, FL in August (this year) and will involve multiple agencies coming together to deal with the crowds.  Rather than re-invent the wheel, I was hoping to get input from someone else who has already dealt with this issue.  If you can put this out to the membership and ask anyone that might have such a policy email it to me at: charles.courtoy@tampagov.net ...thanks.
