Since November 2017, sectional radars and smart cameras began to appear in the country, the main advantage of which is that they can automatically identify the offender and issue a fine. They work with the help of video analysis programs located in the Joint Operations Center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
The measure, which was passed on Wednesday, orders all members of the Portland Police Department to stop giving or receiving „operational support“ from officers representing the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Marshal Service, Federal Protective Service and Customs and Border Protection, according to local news reports. Under the resolution, police are also banned from overseeing demonstrations alongside federal officers.
Some protesters, recalling the city police’s past use of tear gas, mocked him: “You better be here every night, Ted!”

Back in New York, the NYPD set up a secret “Demographics Unit” designed to spy on and monitor Muslim communities around the city. The unit was developed with input and intensive involvement by the CIA, which still refuses to name the former Middle East station chief it has posted in the senior ranks of the NYPD’s intelligence division. Since 2002, the NYPD has dispatched undercover agents known as “rakers” and “mosque crawlers” into Pakistani-American bookstores and restaurants to gauge community anger over US drone strikes inside Pakistan, and into Palestinian hookah bars and mosques to search out signs of terror recruitment and clandestine funding. “If a raker noticed a customer looking at radical literature, he might chat up the store owner and see what he could learn,” the Associated Press reported. “The bookstore, or even the customer, might get further scrutiny.”
The Israeli imprimatur on the NYPD’s Demographics Unit is unmistakable. As a former police official told the Associated Press, the Demographics Unit has attempted to “map the city’s human terrain” through a program “modeled in part on how Israeli authorities operate in the West Bank.”
5. The NYPD Now Has Offices All Over The World
Through the International Liaison Program, NYPD detectives are now stationed in 13 cities around the globe, from Paris to Amman to Sydney. If you’re surprised that New York City would have flatfoots permanently operating on the majority of Earth’s continents, you aren’t alone. When bombs went off in Bali in 2005, Indonesian police were understandably „astonished and irritated that the NYPD showed up.“
When asked for details at a press conference, Mayor Bloomberg basically told reporters to fuck off, saying, „The NYPD has lots of capabilities that you don’t know about and you won’t know about.“
The New York Times has reported that the department’s Harbor unit has 6 submarine drones; four cost $75,000 and the two others cost $120,000, according to the Times. They are developing a portable radar that can see under clothes in order to search for weapons. Militaristic „Hercules teams,“ are deployed to random parts of the city armed with automatic weapons and body armor. Their explicitly stated role is to terrify people.
The Deputy Commissioner oversees both the Intelligence Bureau, which is responsible for intelligence collection and analysis; and the NYPD’s Counterterrorism Bureau operations, including the partnership with the FBI/NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force, the first and largest of its kind in the nation.
New York City is home to more than 8 million people and hosts over 58 million visitors from all over the world annually. The Intelligence and Counterterrorism Bureaus provide some of the most highly trained and best equipped officers to patrol the city, collect and analyze data, and collaborate with partner agencies.
The CT Bureau reviews possible terrorist targets and develops innovative, forward-thinking policies and procedures to guard against attacks, training first responders and specialized units and developing intelligence capabilities for detecting and preventing terrorist attacks. The bureau coordinates with federal, state, and other law enforcement agencies in intelligence gathering and sharing, and plays an integral role in the FBI’s Joint Terrorist Task Force.
Critical Response Command (CRC) is one of the Department’s first lines of defense against a terrorist-related attack. A permanent cadre of hand-selected police officers devoted to counterterrorism, CRC members are trained to respond swiftly, with sufficient expertise and force, to the most highly organized and heavily armed attacks. All CRC team members are trained in special weapons and long-range guns, explosive trace detection, radiological and nuclear awareness, biological and chemical weapons awareness, and are equipped with the skills to detect an impending attack and utilize the best possible response to an emerging situation. The team conducts daily counterterrorism deployments to critical infrastructure sites throughout New York City, saturating strategic locations with a uniform presence to disrupt and deter terrorist planning and hostile surveillance operations.
Domain Awareness System (DAS) is a powerful counterterrorism and policing tool jointly developed and built by the NYPD and Microsoft. As a central platform, DAS is used to aggregate data from internal and external closed-circuit television cameras, license plate readers, and environmental sensors, as well as 911 calls and other NYPD databases. DAS uses an interactive dashboard interface to display real-time alerts whenever a 911 call is received or a sensor is triggered.
The outbreak has also brought new privacy issues, as companies beef up surveillance with tech like thermal cameras and facial recognition in preparation for when people return to their everyday lives.
Surveillance technology has slowly integrated into our daily lives, with facial recognition getting added as a „convenience“ feature for casinos and ordering food. The coronavirus has sped up that process, in the name of public health.
Von China in die USA, von Tel Aviv über London bis nach Washington: Der Dokumentarfilm zeigt erstmals auf, wie sich Staaten weltweit im Kampf gegen Terrorismus und Kriminalität einen gefährlichen Wettlauf um immer mehr und immer neuere Überwachungstechnologien liefern. Mancherorts lässt der Sicherheitswahn bereits eine neue Art von Regime entstehen: den digitalen Totalitarismus.

The Israeli government is expected to declare full lockdowns of numerous ultra-Orthodox communities across the country and West Bank to contain the fast-spreading coronavirus.
A Knesset (Israeli Parliament) ministerial committee was formed late on Sunday to oversee the decision that is expected to affect at least eight cities that and more than a dozen neighborhoods.
Xi Jinping, Generalsekretär des Zentralkomitees der Kommunistischen Partei Chinas, sagte, Großstädte könnten durch den Einsatz von Big Data, Cloud Computing und Technologien für künstliche Intelligenz zur Modernisierung der Stadtverwaltung „intelligenter“ werden.
Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, said major cities can become „smarter“ by using big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence technologies to modernize urban governance.
The authorities can scan your phones, track your face and find out when you leave your home. One of the world’s biggest spying networks is aimed at regular people, and nobody can stop it.
(25. Oktober 2008) Mittlerweile ist der öffentliche Raum in Städten mit unterschiedlichen Kameras und anderen Sensoren am Boden oder in der Luft, beispielsweise in Drohnen, Flugzeugen, Satelliten oder Luftschiffen, weitgehend transparent für eine permanente und flächendeckende Überwachung geworden. Probleme macht der umbaute Raum, denn hier können bislang nur in einzelnen Objekten durch die Anbringung von Kameras, einen heimlich ausgeführten Lauschangriff, Millimeterwellen-, Terahertz- bzw. Ultra-Breitband-Radarsystemen (UWB) oder Backscatter-Röntgentechnik die Innenräume durch die Mauern hindurch erfasst und Menschen und Dinge in ihnen ausgemacht und lokalisiert werden.
