Current Trends in Open Source Queries

The NJ Regional Intelligence Academy (RIA) will be hosting a one day workshop titled: “Current Trends in Open Source Queries”.

COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.


The growth of retrieving information from the internet and other public domains has been a tremendous asset for many sectors, including commerce; research, as well as public safety entities. Access to information has multiplied so many times over the last decade that the structure and content of queries is constantly changing.

This course will take a snapshot of where the field of open source queries has evolved from.  Additionally, participants will learn what is trending now in open source domains, and what today’s public safety official can reasonably expect tomorrow to look like in the world of open source queries and reporting.


This program is designed for law enforcement, homeland security analysts, and emergency responders.


For questions or registration, please email the point of contact Michael Smith at or call 609-588-2498.

The RIA is a training partnership amongst the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness (OHSP), the New Jersey State Police (NJSP) and the public safety agencies represented in the New Jersey Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) region.
