4

Over the past two weeks – in fact since March – we’ve been talking a lot about search, specifically how law enforcement and analysts can use open sources to enhance their understanding of a given issue or target. This article is a roundup, and some new stuff to help cops and analysts search for things. […]

More Search-fu for Intelligence and Law Enforcement from Eric Olson

July 18, 2011 by

4

I read a piece on Police Led Intelligence this morning talking about more effective use of online search engines for police officers (great post!). Nick’s right – many in the Law Enforcement and Intelligence communities can do even more than they are by learning more about how search engines work, but there’s a second part to […]

A journalist working on a piece about some high-end technology [from a vendor whose name I can't mention, but whose initials are IBM] being touted as saving the day at a large agency [I can't reveal the agency, but its initials are NYPD] asked some questions about crime mapping, Compstat and crime analysis and I […]

To Predict and Serve: Predictive Intelligence Analysis, Part I

July 5, 2011 by

0

By Sgt Christopher Fulcher In law enforcement, as in major military missions, the greatest weapon against constantly evolving threats is the intelligence that we gather and then use to drive strategic decisions. Even with some of the best intelligence collection in the world, the process is largely a reactive one. The goal of our intelligence […]

II – Cyber Doctrine: Competitiveness is the Key to Resilience

June 30, 2011 by

Legislated security always fails. Government cannot tell people what to care about; markets can. That’s why I’m so excited about reading Cyber Doctrine: towards a coherent evolutionary framework for learning resilience, which has finally been released by The Institute for Security & Resilience Studies at University College London. This report seems to take into account […]

We might end up running some of this again in the Intel Intelligencer, because the release by Europol last week of its EU Organized Crime Threat Assessment has both a treasure trove of new metrics and a wide range of intelligence which is of use to crime and intelligence analysts seeking information on crime trends. This […]

To Hear What You Need, Stop Listening To Everything

May 4, 2011 by

0

Twenty years ago, the problem with intelligence analysis was that you had to work really hard for every nugget of data and information you got to analyze, and in lieu of hard data, make inferences from things like socks in the dryer and tingles up your spine. Today there is such an embarrassment of data […]

Yesterday we talked about some of the cyber fallout from the successful US operation against Usama bin Laden; today we will look at some of the physical aspects.

Intel Intelligencer Part II: Asset Forfeiture as Intel Funding Source

April 26, 2011 by

0

In Part I of this two-part Intel Intelligencer, I talked about how our two-part article and podcast with Patrick Ryder of the Nassau County Police Department’s Asset Forfeiture and Intelligence Unit sparked an interesting online debate. Sadly, the debate took place on another online forum, depriving Police-Led Intelligence of the traffic that it would have […]

Intel Intelligencer: Debating Asset Forfeiture as a Funding Source for Intel

April 25, 2011 by

2

This week’s Intel Intelligencer points at some documents, works, articles and government guidelines around the topic of asset forfeiture. It is a very long (nearly 3000 word) article, so I’ve broken it into two pieces; this, Part I, is 1500 words long and sets forth the arguments that it may well be a dangerous thing […]
