Rank #1: Oroville Dam Evacuation: Could It Happen Here?

Podcast cover
Read more

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 #4: 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.

Rank #18: 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: An Overview of the 2019 NJOHSP Terrorism Threat Assessment

Podcast cover
Read more

In October, Robert Bowers targeted members of the Jewish community when he entered a Pittsburgh synagogue and opened fire, killing 11 people and injuring six. It was an attack not only toward members of that congregation, but also against all citizens throughout the United States who should be able to go about their daily lives without fearing for their safety at any event or venue. The threat from individuals who similarly wish to do harm has hit home in New Jersey as well. In May, NJOHSP detectives arrested and charged a sovereign citizen extremist for the first time under a new State statute for filing fraudulent liens. In October, an anti-government extremist transported explosive materials through our State with the goal of conducting an attack on Election Day in Washington, DC. That same month, Cesar Sayoc Jr. mailed Cory Booker and 15 other Democratic figureheads packages that contained improvised explosive devices.

These incidents further demonstrate the wide-ranging ideologies associated with domestic terrorism and have only further strengthened our Office’s resolve to protect the diversity that makes New Jersey so unique. Join us as we discuss the upcoming release of NJOHSP's 2019 Terrorism Threat Assessment and the threat extremist groups pose to New Jersey in 2019.
