RIA- Social Media Analysis

  • Middlesex County

The New Jersey Regional Intelligence Academy (RIA) will be sponsoring a one day training program titled: “Social Media Analysis.” The course is scheduled to be held in Middlesex County on Monday, October 17, 2016. (25 is the class maximum). There is no cost to participate.

DESCRIPTION

The growth of intelligence-led approaches to law enforcement and homeland security has empowered state and local law enforcement with a new level of situational awareness. Local jurisdictions now receive a significant amount of information from international, national, and state jurisdictions. The breadth and depth of these analytical products provides helpful information to improve their policing approach; however, public safety professionals must ensure they can proactively examine the scope of criminal and terrorist groups that may be operating in their jurisdictions. 

As a means to develop intelligence inputs to analyze the scope of threats that may be operating in an agency’s jurisdiction, the use of social media must be examined and compared to existing and potential vulnerabilities to obtain the clearest perspective of a jurisdiction’s risk environment.

This training program seeks to examine current trends in social media and how homeland security and law enforcement personnel might analyze and interpret various social media information.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This program is designed for first responders and private sector partners.
