(U//FOUO) Stolen, cloned, or repurposed commercial or official vehicles—such as police cars, ambulances, and public utility service trucks—have been used in terrorist attacks. These vehicles could facilitate terrorist access to restricted and hardened targets as well as to emergency scenes. The use of these vehicles can provide individuals the ability to approach targets to conduct pre-operational surveillance or carry out primary attacks or secondary attacks against first responders.

— (U) In January 2013, a stolen ambulance was used as a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) as part of a secondary attack on a billiards hall in Quetta, Pakistan.

— (U//FOUO) Cloned vehicles are those that have been modified to resemble an authentic vehicle. In January 2010, coordinated attacks in downtown Kabul, Afghanistan included a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device van cloned as an ambulance.

— (U//FOUO) Repurposed vehicles are authentic vehicles that are no longer in official service; they often can be purchased at auctions or on the Internet. In August 2012, assailants detonated a possibly repurposed taxi cab VBIED targeting a funeral procession in Damascus, Syria.

(U//FOUO) Mitigating the risk:

— (U//FOUO) Secure station or facility entrance and exit points, including apparatus bay doors.

— (U//FOUO) Limit or lock unattended emergency vehicles.

— (U//FOUO) Establish a policy for decommissioning vehicles.

— (U//FOUO) Stay current on the “branding” of vehicles used by neighboring jurisdictions and mutual aid companies.

— (U//FOUO) Consider using holograms on emergency vehicles for authentication.

— (U//FOUO) Establish a stolen vehicle reporting process that includes “be on the lookout” warnings for high interest vehicles.

(U//FOUO) Possible indicators:

— (U//FOUO) Improperly marked emergency vehicles.

— (U//FOUO) Driver of emergency vehicle not knowledgeable about area of responsibility or service.

— (U//FOUO) Incorrect vehicle decal verbiage, colors, word font, and size.

— (U//FOUO) Visible identifiers—such as phone numbers, license plates, or call numbers—that are inconsistent with the vehicle’s operating area or mission.

— (U//FOUO) Heavily loaded vehicle, possibly beyond capacity.

(U) Report Suspicious Activity

(U) To report suspicious activity, law enforcement, Fire-EMS, private security personnel, and emergency managers should follow established protocols; all other personnel should call 911 or contact local law enforcement. Suspicious activity reports (SARs) will be forwarded to the appropriate fusion center and FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force for further action.

Two former high-level insiders may have solved two of the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of Malaysian Flight 370:

What caused the plane to suddenly fly off-course? And why are all of the governments involved covering up the truth?

Had MH 370 crashed in the ocean, it would have left a huge, easily-visible debris field. Countries with satellite surveillance systems, and their partners, know exactly where the plane went. Boeing and its engine-manufacturer Rolls Royce also know, since planes and engines have GPS systems. (You can buy a GPS system for a little over $50 in the US; it would be naive to think a $320 million aircraft doesn’t have one.) Even the INMARSAT satellite “pings” that we have been told can only sweep a broad arc of possible locations could in reality be used…

The Sinterklaas tradition in its current configuration is an invocation of, and invitation to, racialized pleasure and I want to consider seriously the dynamic between racism and pleasure, or the concept “racism as pleasure,” embedded in the Sinterklaas tradition . Racism is reproduced over time through pleasure, through embodiment, and through, what Robin Bernstein would term, “dances with things.” People take pleasure in dressing up, and acting, as Zwarte Piet. As such, pleasure plays an important role in the psychological investment that gives Zwarte Piet its cultural currency. Moreover, one of the main arguments used in defence of Zwarte Piet is that Sinterklaas is a “fun” and joyous occasion for children and by getting rid of the figure we are denying children a source of pleasure.

In Affective Economies Sara Ahmed tells us that “emotions play a crucial role in the ‘surfacing’ of individual and collective bodies through the way in which emotions circulate between bodies and signs.” We are conditioned to relate to one another in specific ways, and it is through emotions and the specific ways in which we are conditioned to feel about others that societal norms and the very boundaries and surfaces of bodies take shape. We are taught to fear the stranger, and it is through our fear of the stranger, who has, as Ahmed notes in Strange Encounters, “already come too close” that the stranger emerges. Strangers, then, aren’t those whom we haven’t met, “but those who are, in their very proximity, already recognised as not belonging, as being out of place.” The circulation…

Dear Brothers and Sisters, for my Compliance Solution Project i am in need of professionals who love

to reallocated them self to come to Curacao, and be part of this team, where we can work together

with all the US Related Governmental Agencies and departments to accomplish this Objective.

My Business Plan for Curacao Caribbean & International Compliance Solution.

http://ronaldwederfoort.wordpress.com/2014/03/08/my-business-plan-for-curacao-caribbean-international-compliance-solution/

 

Thank you again for all your support.

We have plans to work as a team with FINCEN, the US Department of Treasury.

Challenging Opportunities, Cutting-Edge Subject Matter

As Treasury’s lead operational agency responsible for establishing, overseeing and implementing policies to prevent and detect money laundering, FinCEN offers a number of exciting challenges and opportunities. As a member of the FinCEN team, you may explore new areas of financial crime, write a new rule implementing regulatory effectiveness, recommend new information technology, or build coalitions with one of our international counterparts. A few examples of the groundbreaking subjects:

Regulatory Efficiency and Effectiveness. In June 2007, Director Freis announced several regulatory reforms including a review of the regulatory framework with a focus on ensuring that requirements on covered financial industries are efficient in their application, yet remain extremely effective in their service to law enforcement investigators, FinCEN analysts, and regulatory examiners.

New Financial Crimes. FinCEN analysts may explore new areas in the fight against financial crime in numerous areas of our financial sector such as insurance, broker/dealers, money services businesses, precious metals/jewelry, casinos, securities and futures. Criminals continue to use technology to exploit any and all avenues in order to further perpetuate their activities. FinCEN provides intelligence and analytical support to federal, state, local and international law enforcement using state-of-the-art-technology.

International Focus. Criminals and terrorists do not respect the law; they certainly do not respect national borders. They will seek to exploit the weakest link to move and launder money through any means of financial intermediation. As a member of the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) of the United States, FinCEN analysts seek to discover illicit international financial activity, and build partnerships with over 100 other countries possessing similar FIUs.

Compliance Specialist

Assess financial institution and financial industry compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and recommend appropriate agency actions. Conduct research and analysis of issues to identify problems or deviations from regulatory requirements, develop reports, analyses, or summaries or guidance materials for use by others. Provide advice or technical assistance to representatives of regulated industries or institutions, federal and state regulatory partners on complex regulatory compliance issues, BSA requirements, FinCEN regulations and policies, or Treasury policies. Review and approve referrals by regulators of BSA violations, recommend sanctions, provide authoritative advice and assistance on specific cases. Support the authority delegated to other regulatory agencies to examine for BSA.

 

Financial Transactions Analyst

The analysts utilize knowledge and skill to conduct activities in one or more of the regulatory, policy, investigative, analytical, research, liaison, or other pertinent functions of FinCEN. The analyst accesses a variety of sources, including databases, regulatory or legal provisions, websites, and discussions with officials in the organizations with which FinCEN interacts to develop information about program activities and summarize those findings in a variety of formal and informal written products. They interact and share information with a diverse array of customers, including the regulatory law enforcement, intelligence, and financial communities, among others.

 

Information Technology Specialist

FinCEN uses state-of-the-art technology to provide investigative support and analysis to law enforcement agencies. The specialist has an integral role in the fulfillment of FinCEN’s mission. The specialist’s work involves developing and refining sophisticated computer systems designed to link information from various data sources relating to financial crime investigations. Using state-of-the-art Internet and encryption technology, assignments include developing and maintaining databases, analytical software, and secure communication systems. The specialist determines how to use sophisticated technology to design, develop, and configure computers that improve the quality of information available to law enforcement.

 

 

Intelligence Research Specialist

The research specialist works in a variety of areas to support domestic and international law enforcement agencies in combating money laundering and other financial crimes. Case support assignments include researching and analyzing information drawn from a variety of databases and other sources—one of the largest repositories of information available to law enforcement in the country. The specialist links together these various pieces of information related to financial crime, and then prepares reports which are used by law enforcement to support investigations. Specialists also use FinCEN’s databases and sources to develop strategic analysis – the”big picture” issues associated with financial crime. They are responsible for collecting, analyzing and developing intelligence on the emerging trends, patterns and issues related to the proceeds of illicit activities. In addition, since investigations can cross international borders, assignments can involve working with countries around the world to share information and analysis related to financial investigations. In this area, specialists work closely with various global organizations to develop international anti-money laundering strategies, policies, and programs. Specialists may also research, analyze and evaluate information to support regulatory enforcement cases.

 

 

Regulatory Enforcement Case Specialist

Provide advice on enforcement matters generally and recommendations on the assessment of civil penalties against financial institutions covered by the provisions of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA). Receive, review, and analyze enforcement matters referred by regulatory agencies, financial institutions, FinCEN organizations, or others, to recommend whether civil penalty or other enforcement action is warranted. Work with clients to resolve discrepancies, explain requirements, or determine recommendations. Recommend curative or enforcement actions. Monitors activities of financial institutions to determine trends, patterns, problems, and other information related to BSA violations. Prepare reports, decision memoranda, or summaries to communicate recommended or indicated action.

 

 

Regulatory Outreach Specialist

Conducts program activities to help ensure that the institutions that are subject to Bank Secrecy Act are aware of their compliance requirements and of appropriate reporting methods and formats; creates processes and delivery mechanisms that make reporting requirement information clear and accessible; responds to inquiries; and provides training. Conduct outreach to determine requirements that require further clarity and that are technically difficult or onerous to some types of regulated businesses. Prepare training materials and programs to enhance reporting compliance and guidance materials that serve as references for covered organizations. Participates in operating a BSA “Regulatory Helpline” that serves as a resource for covered institutions with questions on BSA regulatory and compliance matters.

 

Regulatory Policy Specialist

Perform a range of complex, sensitive work necessary to effectively administer the Bank Secrecy Act, including development and implementation of policy, outreach, issuance of regulations and guidance and recommending appropriate agency actions to RP management. Conduct projects or studies of initiatives associated with BSA regulation and oversight of regulated industries to identify solutions to problems; develop legislative or regulatory proposals; resolve regulatory policy matters; and prepare guidance and interpretative materials related to policy and regulatory issues. Liaise with regulatory partners, industry and law enforcement and officials of other organizations to discuss regulations or regulatory policy, problem resolution, BSA requirements.
