New Jersey is home to nearly 1,700 regulated dams. As such, the New Jersey's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Division of Engineering and Construction administers the New Jersey Dam Safety program, which ensures the safety and integrity of dams in New Jersey and protects people and property from the consequences of dam failures.

Audrey Miller of NJOHSP’s Preparedness Bureau co-hosted this episode on dam safety with Bob Bostock, DEP’s Director of Strategic Communications and host of the Discover DEP podcast, making this the first Intelligence. Unclassified. episode to feature a partnering state agency as a co-host. Audrey and Bob sat down with John Moyle, Division Director for NJ DEP's Division of Dam Safety and Flood Control, to talk about dam safety in New Jersey in light of the recent failure at the Oroville Dam in California. Topics of discussion include an explanation of the Oroville Dam emergency, a comparison of dam design, topography, and magnitude of the Oroville Dam and New Jersey dams, and why this type of failure is unlikely to occur in New Jersey.

Rank #3: Homeland Security Advisors Series: Part VI - Cascadia Rising with Major General Bret Daugherty (Washington)

Podcast cover
Read more

Homeland security advisors (HSAs) are the sole representative for the Governor to the US Department of Homeland Security. Although there is no one model for the HSA position, all HSAs are responsible for implementing the state’s homeland security mission, receiving classified threat information, and acting on behalf of the Governor in the event of a disaster or emergency. Despite the critical role HSAs play, little is known about the position. The Governors Homeland Security Advisors Council (GHSAC) is conducting a podcast mini-series through the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness Intelligence. Unclassified. The first episode of the podcast will provide an overview of the role of the HSA, discuss how HSAs interact with their governors, and identify how states play a role in homeland security. The remaining six episodes of the podcast will focus on specific threats HSAs face in their jurisdictions. The goal of this podcast series is to provide more awareness about homeland security advisors and the state role in homeland security.

Join Director of Intelligence Rosemary Martorana as Major General Bret Daugherty of Washington describes Cascadia Rising, the largest earthquake exercise in Washington state history, which simulated a 9.0 Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake and tsunami along the Washington and Oregon coasts.

White supremacist extremists often use imagery that can be broken down into four categories—traditional, religious, Nazi-related, and Internet-based—to convey their ideology, show support for a specific group, or intimidate minority populations. These symbols should not automatically be assumed to be hate-related, but should be evaluated in the context in which they are used.

Anarchists extremists believe that society should exist absent of “oppressive” governments, laws, police, or any other authority and they advocate violence in furtherance of sub movements such as anti-racism, anti-capitalism, anti-globalism, and environmental extremism.

Over the past year, anarchists have carried out attacks against white supremacists during counter protests, have caused millions of dollars in damage to private and public property during riots, and have latched onto otherwise legal protests nationwide. In New Jersey, they have been largely non-violent and focused on anti-racist action.

Rank #13: New Jersey's Terrorism Threat Assessment (Part I): Competition between al Qa'ida and ISIS

Podcast cover
Read more

The events of 2015 highlight that New Jersey—and the United States—face a terrorist landscape more dangerous than any since the attacks of September 11, 2001. From the brutal and tragic attacks in San Bernardino and Paris, the year saw a dramatic rise in multi-operative, small-scale attacks on civilian soft targets—all with little to no warning—as well as the decentralization and diffusion of the global terrorism movement. This new dynamic makes it extremely difficult for law enforcement and homeland security professionals, at all levels of government, to detect and deter attacks like San Bernardino, Paris, Philadelphia, or Boston. Now more than ever, state and local coordination is critical to combating the evolving and diffuse terrorist threat we face. Homeland security has become hometown security. And NJOHSP is working diligently with our partners to stay abreast of terrorist capabilities.

This three-part series was adopted from a webinar our office hosted in January and is intended to expand on some of the major themes presented in NJOHSP's 2016 Terrorism Threat Assessment. Episode one discusses the increase in competition between the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, and al-Qa'ida that we expect to see in 2016. Episode two takes a hard look at domestic extremism throughout the United States, while episode three explores the concept of "Blended Extremism," or individuals that draw their inspiration from multiple radical ideologies and tailor these beliefs to ultimately form a unique worldview to advance their violent goals.

Rank #19: Children of the Caliphate - Young ISIS Returnees and the Reintegration Challenge

Podcast cover
Read more

In recent years, the world has been repeatedly shocked by the gruesome images and actions of ISIS, in particular the footage and stories of children as young as eight executing people. Children play an important role in the organization: the children of the caliphate are seen as "the future of ISIS," and therefore education and propaganda are an important form of indoctrination. ISIS uses minors for suicide attacks, executions and fighting. Research has shown that IS propaganda between in 2015 and 2016 included 89 eulogies of children and youths—a number that steadily increased each monthly, showing that ISIS has gradually opted for this tactic. The role of minors and their future causes international concern for a broad range of reasons. Growing up and potentially fighting in armed conflict will traumatize a large number of these children. Also, what will happen with these children if the Caliphate collapses? Human Rights Watch expressed concerns about the birth registrations that will most likely not be recognized by the international community – potentially leaving children stateless.

This week on Intelligence. Unclassified., Analysis Bureau Chief Dean Baratta had an enlightening call with researcher Liesbeth van der Heide from the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (ICCT), where they talk about her recent paper, Children of the Caliphate. They will explore the findings she and her co-author provide on young or juvenile ISIS returnees, assessing what sets juvenile returnees apart from adult returnees or the broader population of young criminals, and scoping the potential venues and challenges in their rehabilitation and reintegration.

High Threats: Activity of White Supremacist Extremists and HVEs

Homeland security and law enforcement professionals have taken notice of the rise in activity by white supremacist extremists. Individuals and groups following this ideology have cited the concept of accelerationism to justify their actions and evolved their tactics to include posting manifestos and livestreaming their attacks. The arrest of a Camden County man accused of directing others in a neo-Nazi network to vandalize synagogues, the sentencing of a Sussex County man obsessed with Nazis and mass shootings, and a doubling of recruitment efforts through flyering are examples of acts intended to intimidate, inspire, and network in New Jersey. NJOHSP increased the threat posed by white supremacist extremists from moderate to high in 2020, joining them with homegrown violent extremists (HVEs) inspired by foreign terrorist organizations as the most persistent hostile actors across the State.

Unpacking the Relationship Between Mental Illness and Mass Violence

Podcast cover
Read more

Mental illnesses are extremely common; mass violence is not. Despite the fear and public scrutiny, mass shootings are statistically rare events. But it is hard for most people to imagine that a mentally healthy person would deliberately commit an act of mass murder; thus, it is often assumed that the perpetrators of mass violence must be mentally ill. There is a tendency to overuse mental health problems as an explanation for violence, but the relationship is far more complex than typically presented. While there is a modest link between mental illness and violence, there is no basis for a generalized fear of people with mental illness. Having a mental illness does not predispose someone to violence of any type, and certainly not mass violence.

In our Season Four finale, Steve Crimando of the New Jersey Department of Human Services’ Disaster and Terrorism Branch joins us again to unpack this complicated relationship and offer insights into the programs and resources that address both mental health and mass violence in the State.

Developing the 21st Century Analyst: Analysis of Competing Hypotheses

Podcast cover
Read more

Continuing our discussion of the structured analytic techniques toolbox, we come to Analysis of Competing Hypotheses (ACH), which is an unbiased methodology that identifies a set of hypotheses and systematically evaluates data that is consistent or inconsistent with each hypothesis. ACH is an eight-step procedure grounded in basic insights from cognitive psychology, decision analysis, and the scientific method. The use of ACH compels analysts to set aside preconceptions and look for inconsistencies in the data that may indicate a flaw in their reasoning or deception by the target. It ultimately forces analysts to disprove hypotheses rather than allowing them to jump to conclusions before they properly evaluate the evidence.

In this episode of the Developing the 21st Century Analyst series, we discuss the steps of ACH and how our office uses this technique in real-world scenarios.

The Technology Foresight Forum was hosted earlier this year by the Stevens Institute of Technology Maritime Security Center (MSC)—a US Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Center of Excellence—and the NY/NJ Regional Metro Alumni Chapter of the Naval Postgraduate School’s Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS). This forum brought together a broad base of representatives from the public, private, and government sectors to engage in discourse on the capabilities and potential implications of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and autonomous vehicles on safety, security, and public policy. In addition to presenting at the forum, NJOHSP took Intelligence. Unclassified. on the road to talk to some of the forum participants, see how technology impacts each of their organizations, and learn what they hoped to get out of these artificial intelligence-related panels.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons estimates it will release 112 inmates with convictions relating to international terrorism between 2015 and 2020, with an additional 100 releases between 2021 and 2031. NJOHSP assesses that the threat from terrorists recently released from prison is moderate given the small number of releases in connection with terrorism-related offenses over the past five years, supervision upon release, and public scrutiny.  In this episode, we explore the upcoming release of the “American Taliban,” John Walker Lindh, and others who said they will continue to harbor extremist ideologies.
