TeleStrategies’ ISS World is sponsoring a webinar on Innovative Gang Intelligence Collection: Tips and tricks for turning open source data into actionable intelligence on Wednesday, August 28, at 1 p.m. Eastern that we will be participating in.
What We’ll Cover
The violence and crime associated with gangs prevalent in many towns and cities across the United States present law enforcement and security professionals with a daily challenge. However, the Web provides law enforcement agencies an incredible opportunity to collect information on known and vetted gang members and their activities.
The Deep Web is the part of the Internet not accessible by link-crawling search engines like Google. Publicly-available Deep Web content includes thousands of sources like:
- Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, Message Boards, etc.)
- Consumer Classified Sites (Craigslist, Backpage, etc.)
- Open Source Databases Containing Public Records
Learn how law enforcement and public safety professionals are leveraging the Deep Web to make gang intelligence collection a true force multiplier. Lyle Dungy from the Detroit Crime Commission will talk about specific examples from his work.
