NYPD-Microsoft Domain Spying System

NYPD released information on an earlier Domain Awareness System in 2009 in response to a citizen push-back such as a 2004 Chatham Green/ACLU law suit. (Chatham Green the name of a housing complex adjoining NYPD Headquarters negatively impacted by security appartus)

It is not yet clear how the new version, developed with Microsoft, differs from the earlier one. It may be that the name has been retained to avoid having to conduct environmental impact and other mandated studies done for the 2009 version -- an evasion tactic amply used by governmental and corporate interests.

The Domain Awareness System is a component of a much broader, global surveillence system of the NYPD. A recent HOPE9 video on the topic: Cryptome Tracks the NYPD Ring of Steel and Deborah Natsios/Cryptome Trial by Jury: Judging the NYPD Ring of Steel

Ah, I forgot a couple details & had some typos; when I said "Ottawa and Canada", I meant Ottawa and London. I totally forget Austin, et cetera.

Here's a bunch of links to copy/pastes from stratfor emails detailing a lot of what I had to say in the prior email. There's like 10+ pages of hits in the stratfor dumps, so it's not all of it, just what I had bookmarked while reading into it some.


[The 20 files listed below:] - centralized database, vegas hotels, linked sites, etc - NYC circa 2010 - Austin - note the last paragraph - Texas border circa 2009 - Talking about images to analyze and walking the cat back - Trapwire for certain citizens that are important, but not USSS important - London Stock Exchange - NYC, DC, Vegas, London, Ottawa, LA - 1.8M for trapwire & equipment from Austin DPS - trapwire on the desks of USSS CP, MI5, RCMP, LAPD CT, NYPD CT - trapwire DC metro, National Park Police, etc - trapwire LAPD as a prototype - trapwire Army, Pentagon, USMC, Navy - Trapwire 7 years circa 2011, National SAR Initiative (NSI), FBIs eGuardian, Ft. Meade, etc - Amtrack, DHS fusion centers, DC Metro - "TrapWire is a technology solution predicated upon behavior patterns in red zones to identify surveillance. It helps you connect the dots over time and distance. - salesforce, google, DHS institute - Nigerian Presidential Palace - Scotland Yard, 10 Downing St, White House, Wal-Mart, Dell
