More and more news speaks of incidents where groups of people were at risk, and ultimately injured or killed by those meaning to harm as many innocent victims as possible. Regardless of the motivation, the victims did not know they were are risk and, in fact, assumed not. Perhaps they were shopping, enjoying a meal at restaurant, a movie or performance at theatre, or simply attending school or at work. Too many innocent lives have been lost.
Traditional investigative and protective methods are not keeping up with the threats. Today’s criminal investigations are based largely on human resources and as the type and number of threats has grown, sufficient resources are not available to scale with the volume.
