CASE STUDY: Law Enforcement

With the growing threat of drug crime and terrorism, Cyber Watch International (CWI) is working with international law enforcement agencies to obtain intelligence and determine internal as well as external threats to national security.  With the growing trend of drug-related and terrorism-related activities on social networks, CWI has developed a dashboard to monitor accounts for signs of activity that may indicate recruitment, or commercial activity related to drugs, trafficking, terrorism and related crimes.

The drug enforcement dashboard monitors trends by watching for key terms and reporting the trending sentiment and volume as it correlates to geographical and demographic data. While CWI is able to monitor the top-level dashboard, it is not able to monitor individuals, rather government officials have access to detailed reports that identify specific individuals and can request ongoing monitoring after obtaining necessary warrants.

One particular area of interest is to co-ordinate drug usage data gathered by law-enforcement with drug rehabilitation and treatment centers to correlate sentiment trends, topics and interactions with habitual drug use to see if a person can be sent automatic warning signs that they are showing symptoms leading to drug abuse.

The CyberGirl program also provides family and friends of people at risk with voluntary participation with mood and sentiment analysis reports to help monitor loved ones (with their consent). This cyber-citizen program attempts to help families receive notifications of warning signs from their consenting family members. It’s primary emphasis is for those who are seeking help, receiving treatment for drug abuse, and for their families.
