  1. 1. 6 7th Annual Mid-Atlantic INLETS: Violent Crimes & Terrorism Trends JUNE 19-23, 2017 | THE DOUBLETREE ANNAPOLIS
  2. 2. 2 GREETINGS, On behalf of the Planning Team, welcome to the 7th Annual Mid-Atlantic INLETS: Violent Crimes & Terrorism Trends. Your planning team comes from the FBI Field Offices in Washington, DC and Baltimore, the Maryland Coordination & Analysis Center (MCAC, the state fusion center), and the local chapters of InfraGard: InfraGard Maryland and Infragard National Capital Region - the host of this training platform. This seminar is for you. You represent more than 200 local, state, federal, military, first response, law enforcement and stake-holder agencies and organizations comprised of Investigators, analysts and security/risk professionals with an average of 15 years of experience. In 2011, the FBI was scheduled to host the first-ever FBI profiler-led seminar in this region. Just weeks before it was to begin, the Federal government rescinded budgets and the seminar was going to be cancelled. InfraGard Maryland and MCAC recognized the potential positive impact for local law enforcement and both provided the financial support and resources to ensure the training would occur. After reading the surveys, emails, and notes from attendees, the Mid-Atlantic INtelligence & Law Enforcement Training Seminar was created. Since then, the InfraGard National Capital Region Members Alliance (InfraGardNCR) has taken the lead as our host with the support of the Maryland chapter. Without InfraGardNCR, this training would not be possible. In the past 6 years, roughly 5,000 attendees representing 500 agencies, 250 companies, and 15 different InfraGard chapters from 32 states and across three time zones have participated in the annual seminar, “A Day on the INLETS” (a one-day threat-focused program), or a single topic lunch-time lecture we call a “Brown Bag Briefing.” We have provided these programs in six states. We want to acknowledge American Military University, our Sustaining Partner, for their strong support of the INLETS program. The planning team extends our gratitude to Kristina Tanasichuk, David Engel, and Jennifer Gant for their leadership, vision, and support. WE WELCOME YOU TO ANNAPOLIS. AND TO THE MID-ATLANTIC INLETS.

  5. 5. 5 in·let  noun (ˈin-let) 1. A stream or bay leading inland, as from the ocean; an estuary.   2. A connection between a bay and the ocean; often called an "entrance" or a recession in the shore of a sea, lake or river.  3. An opening providing a means of entrance or intake.    The Mid-Atlantic INLETS (INtelligence & Law Enforcement Training Seminar) is a collaborative training program connecting those charged with protecting our communities with the instruction to help them do so.     The singular focus is to further develop and support the analytical and investigative capability of law enforcement and private sector stakeholders in the greater National Capital Region and beyond.  Designed by components from the FBI Field Offices in Washington, DC and Baltimore, InfraGard, and the Maryland Coordination and Analysis Center (MCAC), the training topics are selected based on innovative investigative techniques, current threats, emerging trends to the region, surveys, and specific requests.   The program which offers In-service and continuing education units is presented by subject matter experts from all levels of government and the private sector. Originally established with the InfraGard Maryland Members Alliance, the INLETS is now led by the InfraGard National Capital Region Members Alliance (InfraGardNCR). Because of their leadership in hosting the program, it is not dependent on federal funding. INLETS is offered in three formats, available to all interested law enforcement, defense and intelligence entities, and InfraGard members who are security/risk professionals.  A Day on the INLETS An eight hour block of instruction composed of various presentations on pertinent, parallel topics.  Hosted by InfraGard chapters throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, this day of instruction is provided quarterly.  Venues have stretched from Quantico, VA, southern and western Maryland, to Wilmington, Delaware and southern New Jersey.  Bringing the instruction to various geographic regions minimizes the financial and travel impact on the attendees and further strengthens liaison and attendance with our partners - both private and public sectors, across state lines. The Annual Seminar on Violent Crimes & Terrorism Trends Held during the last week in June in Annapolis, Maryland, the seminar offers a bevy of timely topics in three formats of instruction: General sessions, focused presentation topics led by subject matter experts and offering comprehensive overviews of current topics, and workshops, which provide an in-depth study of a single topic over multiple days. The Mid-Atlantic INLETS Planning Team consists of FBI Washington, DC and Baltimore Field Office Special Agents who serve as Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) Coordinators and InfraGard Coordinators, InfraGard members from the Maryland and National Capital Region chapters, and the MCAC’s External Relations Branch. InfraGardNCR also serves as treasurer. For more information, including meeting schedules, please visit On the INLETS:
  6. 6. !6 WHAT YOU CAN LEARN FROM INLETS American Military University (AMU) is very proud to support The Mid- Atlantic INLETS. The educational sessions and workshops you will attend this week provide a unique opportunity to learn from fellow officers around the nation and the globe. We support this event because we believe the high-quality education offered during INLETS will help better prepare our nation’s law enforcement agencies for responding to terrorism and violent crimes. As a university, we encourage you to take advantage of the many learning opportunities throughout the week. Learning happens in many places outside the classroom and one of the best ways to learn is through the experience of others. As you listen to presentations by national and international law enforcement officers, consider how these events apply to you and your agency. Ask yourself these questions: • What can you take away from each session to help your agency be better prepared? • What lessons have others learned that can be applied to your job? • What mistakes did other agencies make and how can you avoid making similar ones? Terrorism and violent crimes know no boundaries. None of us can predict the next tragedy, but we can be better prepared. Your attendance at this conference is just one more step toward preparedness. AMU thanks you for your tireless work to protect our communities and our nation and we encourage you to never stop learning.
  7. 7. 7 A WORD ABOUT OUR SPONSORS: InfraGard National Capital Region Members Alliance is proud to host The Mid-Atlantic INLETS. How does their hosting impact the program?

Female aggression, especially towards one’s own child, is perceived to be abnormal. As a result, such expressions like, “If she killed her kid, she must be crazy,” can contribute to a general misconception about mothers and this type of crime. Neonaticide investigations present complex psychological and social dynamics and investigators must give attention to factors not even considered in many other types of cases.

  14. 14. !14 In 2014 at the 4th annual Mid-Atlantic INLETS, we added a sponsor table called “Coffee & Conversation.” Manned with a couple of volunteers, it wasn’t Billy Graham and it wasn’t Frasier Crane. It was simply folks who were trained listeners. A casual touch-point for attendees who were looking for a recommendation for a place to eat, to share an idea, or to have a quiet conversation. This year there has been a lot of national media scrutiny of law enforcement and our agenda discusses significant life threatening and life changing moments; for fellow officers and for innocent victims. So, we again have volunteers, who are trained listeners, available for “coffee and conversation.” Why? Dean Scoville wrote in Police Magazine’s Police and PTSD, that “In the wake of a traumatic incident, it is not uncommon for law enforcement officers to be plagued by insomnia, fatigue, loss of appetite, recurring thoughts and nightmares, anxiety, depression, numbness, or fear for their own safety. Worse, inability to maintain intimacy with their loved ones or increased feelings of guilt can lead to severe depression or even suicidal thoughts.” James Genovese, in an article titled Alcoholism Among Law Enforcement Personnel: Its Unique Challenges, writes, “Alcohol abuse… afflicts one-quarter of all police officers in the US. Research has revealed a strong connection between occupational stress and alcohol and drug abuse. Alcohol consumption among police officers is also correlated with officer suicides and domestic violence.” The Badge of Life study of police suicides by Ron Clark and Andy O’Hara reports in 2012 there were 126 police suicides. These victims were approximately 42 years of age and had 16 years on the job. 11% of them were also military veterans. These volunteers are here for you, because you are there for the rest of us.

Established by the Department of Justice in 1985, the Violent C r i m i n a l A p p r e h e n s i o n Program (ViCAP) serves as the national repository for violent crimes; speciZically homicides, sexual assaults, missing persons, and unidentiZied human remains. Comprehensive case information submitted to ViCAP is maintained in the national database and automatically compared to all other cases in the database to identify similarities. Individual case submissions are analyzed by crime analysts through the application of analytical skills, education, specialized training, and research. The primary mission of the ViCAP is to provide criminal investigative and analytical support to federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies. This support includes the collection and examination of case information, multi-agency coordination, and the creation of analytical products. One of the cornerstones of the program is the continued development and maintenance of ViCAP Web, the nationwide investigative database of homicides, sexual assaults, missing persons, and unidentiZied human remains. ViCAP Web collects information regarding the following types of crimes, whether or not the offender has been arrested or identiZied: ● Homicides (and attempts), especially those that involve an abductions are apparently random, motiveless, or sexually oriented, or are known or suspected to be part of a series. ● Sexual Assaults, especially those committed by a stranger, or those known or suspected to be part of a series. ● Missing Persons where the circumstances indicate a strong possibility of foul play and the victim is still missing. ● UnidentiZied Human Remains where the manner of death is known or suspected to be homicide.
  16. 16. ABOUT THE MARYLAND CENTER FOR SCHOOL SAFETY The Maryland Center for School Safety was created by the General Assembly in 2013 to work with public school and law enforcement stakeholders to ensure a comprehensive and coordinated approach to school safety, including disseminating information on best practices, providing training and technical assistance, and gathering meaningful data on school safety issues to ensure our schools are a safe and supportive environment. Additionally, a Center Governing Board was established to develop an implementation plan to phase in establishment and operation of the Center; provide general oversight and direction to the Center; and approve the annual budget for the Center. The Governor appointed State Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Lillian M. Lowery, as chair. A representative of the local Superintendents of Schools and Maryland Association of Boards of Education are members of the Governing Board. Mr. Edward A. Clarke was hired as the Zirst Executive Director of the Maryland Center for School Safety. He brings thirty-seven years of combined law enforcement and school safety experience to the position.

  23. 23. !23 It is es2mated that 80 – 90% of our na2on’s cri2cal infrastructure is privately owned. The federal government alone cannot accomplish protec2ng these assets. It requires coordinated ac2on from numerous stakeholders – including government, the private sector, law enforcement, academia, and concerned ci2zens. InfraGard serves as the cri2cal link to connect infrastructure owners and operators with the en22es that strive to protect those assets. The InfraGard program is a collabora2ve effort between the FBI and stakeholders in both the public and private sectors who share a common goal of protec2ng the na2on’s cri2cal infrastructures. Through informa2on sharing and exchange, 2mely informa2on and intelligence is delivered, inves2ga2ons are ini2ated and/or enhanced, vital economic and na2onal security assets are protected, and las2ng rela2onships are formed between law enforcement and infrastructure owners/operators. More than 45,000 members in 80+ InfraGard chapters na2onwide partner with the FBI field office in their geographic area to achieve their informa2on sharing mission. Chapters host regular mee2ngs on a broad spectrum of infrastructure-related issues and topics; some mee2ngs are open to the public, but there are sessions which are restricted to only members based on the sensi2vity of the presenta2on. In addi2on to monthly mee2ngs, chapters have special events, new member/networking sessions, and par2cipate in and/or support a number of other programs and conferences throughout the year. The InfraGard Na2onal Capital Region Members Alliance (InfraGardNCR) represents more than 2,000 individuals in the na2onal capital region (metropolitan Washington, DC area) who work to share informa2on about physical and cyber threats, vulnerabili2es and best prac2ces, in order to be_er protect our na2on’s capital and its infrastructure assets. InfraGardNCR partners with the FBI’s Washington, DC and Bal2more field offices, and the Maryland Coordina2on & Analysis Center as the host of On The INLETS (Intel & Law Enforcement Training Seminar). This series of training programs, designed to enhance and support the analy2cal and inves2ga2ve capabili2es of law enforcement and private sector stakeholders, is an example of the robust efforts of InfraGardNCR to ensure our na2on’s first responders have the tools and training they need to be_er protect our country.

  30. 30. Violent Criminal Apprehension Program
 The Highway Serial Killings Initiative If there is such a thing as an ideal profession for a serial killer, it may well be as a long-haul truck driver. FBI Crime Analyst Christie Palazzolo is quick to point out that long-haul trucking is an honorable profession and that the overwhelming majority of drivers are not murderers—but it does happen, and the pattern is unmistakable. More than a decade ago, analysts for the FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (ViCAP)— the only national database of serial crimes—began to see a marked increase in the number of bodies recovered along the side of the road. A majority of the victims were truck-stop prostitutes, and it turned out that many of the suspects were long-haul truckers. “We had an inordinate number of victims and offenders from this rather specific population pool,” Palazzolo explained. To make matters worse, these cases are extremely difficult to investigate. A long-haul driver can pick up a prostitute at a truck stop in Georgia, rape and murder her, and dump her body on the side of the road in Florida later that day. The victim has no connection to the area where she was found, and there may be no forensic evidence to collect because the crime was committed hundreds of miles away. The local police detectives investigating the case might have little experience dealing with a crime of this nature and may be faced with few, if any, leads. Since the Highway Serial Killings Initiative began in 2004, ViCAP analysts have compiled a list of more than 750 murder victims found along or near U.S. highways, as well as nearly 450 potential suspects.
  31. 31. 31 The Office for Victim Assistance (OVA) is to ensure that victims of crimes investigated by the FBI are afforded the opportunity to receive n o t i f i c a t i o n and services as required by F e d e r a l l a w a n d t h e A t t o r n e y G e n e r a l Guidelines on Victim and Witness Assistance. The FBI is committed to ensuring that victims are notified of the rights to which they are entitled and the assistance to help them cope with the impact of crime. Victim Specialists work in FBI Field Offices around the country providing assistance to those who have suffered physical, emotional and/or financial harm as a result of a Federal crime. The OVA is also comprised of: Terrorism and Special Jurisdiction Victim Assistance Unit; Child Pornography Victim Assistance Program; Child/Adolescent Forensic Interviewing Program; Victim Assistance Program Specialist Staff; Victim Notification System Coordinator; and, Victim Assistance Rapid Deployment Teams. The OVA is directly responsible for several special programs:  • The Terrorism and Special Jurisdictions program provides emergency assistance to injured victims and families of victims murdered in terrorist attacks within the U.S. and outside the country and serves as a permanent point-of- contact for terrorism victims within the FBI. • The Child Pornography Victim Assistance program coordinates assistance and notification services for child victims of pornography and their guardians. • The Forensic Child Interviewing Program ensures that investigative interviews of child victims and witnesses of federal crimes are tailored to the child's stage of development and minimize any additional trauma to the child. FBI child interview specialists directly assist with some interviews and provide detailed training to special agents and other law enforcement personnel on child interviewing. • The Field Office Victim Assistance Program places victim specialists in FBI field offices across the country to personally assist victims of federal crimes investigated by the division or field office where they work. • The Victim Notification System—available in both English and Spanish—is an automated system that provides victims with information about their cases.
