The I/I is tasked to accomplish preserving potential evidence at crime scenes such as collection, documentation, and securing, establishing chain of custody, comprehensive investigations, apprehension and prosecution of Americans. It will also serve as a conduit for situational awareness, or boots on the ground, even within your own city.
FEMA carries out its mission by using an organizational hierarchy known as National Incident Management System (NIMS) which is the DNA within its membranes holding secrets of its doctrine, concepts, principles, terminology, and organizational processes enabling it to be an effective, efficient, and collaborative task-master over our lives.
FEMA found it necessary to conquer all disciplines and control all levels of government so that it could conduct “Nontraditional” forms of intelligence & investigations (I/I) activities. These might include:
- Investigations Operations
- Intelligence Operations
- Forensics-including management by examiner/coroner on matters related to the examination, recovery, and movement of decedents
- Missing Persons and the establishment of “Family Assistance Centers”
- Mass Fatality Management including activation of Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Teams and through the “appropriate authority expeditiously issue a death certificate”.
- Fire, explosion, or arson cause and origin (regardless of likelihood of criminal activity)
- Real-time research and analysis intended to protect against, respond, and/or recover from a specific incident
- Transportation- Including accidents, checkpoints, roadblocks, traffic control, controlling access points
Due to the fact that I/I is flexible and scalable; it is no respecter of incident, event, emergency, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity unconventional services will begin using I/I after its adoption following the end of the Stakeholder Comment Period on May 9, 2016. This includes your local fire departments, county public health, coroner’s, National Transportation Safety Board, and even the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
FEMA’s Operations Section will use forceful tactical I/I to conduct the following actions:
|Seizures||Physical surveillance||Electronic surveillance|
|Stops/detentions||Directed enforcement operations||Undercover officer operations|
|Identification activities||Epidemiological surveillance||Involve the respective legal authorities (e.g., prosecutors’ office, magistrates, and courts of jurisdiction) as required|
FEMA has a component that will provide critical information analysis, sanitize classified or sensitive information, and distributes it nationally. They will also secure uniform talking points on the information that they do release to the public.
|Nontechnical Canvass||Technical canvasses||Interviews|
|Interrogations||Prisoner debriefings||Identification procedures|
|Searches and seizures||Database/Record queries||Electronic communication (e.g., telephone, computer) investigative records acquisition and analysis|
|Physical surveillance||Electronic surveillance||Acquisition and analysis of records and other evidence|
|Polygraph examinations||Undercover officer and confidential informant operations||Activation and use of tiplines, hotlines, and/or call centers|
|Dissemination of alarms, “Be on the Lookout” messages, alerts, warnings, and notices||Obtaining and securing of sources of investigatory data, such as flight data recorders, cockpit voice recorders, vehicle electronic data recorders, radar data, and 9-1-1 tapes.|
A technical canvass is through electronic devices to identify witnesses, sources of information, evidence, intelligence, leads, etc.
|Involve electronic image capture devices||Still, video, closed-circuit television||Electronic audio capture devices|
|Banking transaction devices (e.g., automated teller machine)||Electronic, electronic financial transaction devices (e.g., credit card, debit card, social services card, stored value card)||Electronic travel transaction devices (e.g., subway card, E-ZPass, airline ticket, railroad ticket)|
|Electronic access/egress control devices (proximity card reader,)||Cell sites||Pay phones|
|Internet cafes||Biometric card reader||Identification card reader|
|Air Force Intelligence||Army Intelligence Central Intelligence Agency||Coast Guard Intelligence|
|Defense Intelligence Agency||Department of Energy||Department of Homeland Security|
|Department of State||Department of the Treasury||Drug Enforcement Administration|
|Federal Bureau of Investigation||Marine Corps Intelligence||National Geospatial Geospatial-Intelligence Agency|
|National Reconnaissance Office||National Security Agency||Navy Intelligence|
|Office of the Director of National Intelligence|
The fog has been lifted and we are now seeing the implementation of what some might call martial law. There is much more unfolding through these documents but it would be beyond the scope of this article to review all the changes that forthcoming. In a nutshell, what you see is the codification of actions that already have been taking place but the American people were unaware. This same post-crime codification occurred for the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
For a country who has forsaken God we cannot expect much except judgment for our sins but for individual’s who have not forsaken God, may He be our help, protection, and shelter in these days of coming trouble. Let us join in faithful prayer for those who are being persecuted because our day is coming.
