Peel, Canada : 26 firearms, drugs worth $1.2M recoveredSITUATION

The regional police of Peel have uncovered a large cache of firearms, ammunition, and drugs.

The operation codenamed ‘Project Baron,’ resulted in the seizure of 26 firearms, 1,500 rounds of ammunition, a bulletproof vest and $1.2 million worth of illicit drugs including cocaine, meth, heroin, fentanyl, and mushrooms, according to lead investigator, Christina Arnold, said that

Salem Talke, aged 35, of Brampton was arrested on March 21 and faces 62 offences related to drug possession and trafficking.

This arrest allowed investigators to see through six search warrants connected to various locations and vehicles around Peel region and Toronto.

Guns, drugs, and cash concealed in cars and furniture were discovered in multiple locations. These locations include Sandalwood Parkway and Hurontario in Brampton, Rexdale in Etobicoke and Liberty Village in Toronto.

This is one of the largest firearms seizures Peel region as seen to date.

Acting Det. Sgt Chad Lines observes that this seizure is significant and that that it has removed a considerable number of drugs and weapons off the streets. Also, has prevented further criminal activities from occurring in communities.

The investigation began after receiving information of drug in and around Peel region January of this year.

The mayors of Mississauga and Brampton congratulated the Vice, Narcotics, and Street Level Organized Crime Bureau for the arrest.

Brown also spoke, saying he applauds everyone involved in a major accomplishment towards public safety. “Everyone has the right to feel safe and because of the great work of our Peel Regional Police this is a major step forward,” said Brown. “On behalf of the city of Brampton, thanks to the chief and the entire team for this incredible accomplishment.

CHALLENGE

This arrest allowed investigators to see through six search warrants connected to various locations and vehicles around Peel region and Toronto. People need to continue to feel safe in their community. As a community, gun violence needs to be stopped. Handguns must be stopped from entering the city. This record-breaking seizure draws attention to an emerging threat and shows the collaborative efforts of  law enforcement agencies in seizing illicit drugs before it gets to the streets and into users’ hands.

By collaborating and sharing information, resources and expertise, the agencies attempt to save the citizens from the drug menace. Law enforcement partners continue to battle the drug menace which keeps on devastating communities.

Unfortunately, the information possessed by the arrested suspects must be discovered and efficiently used to uncover intelligence about the smuggling and trafficking organizations. The challenge is that traditional interrogative and investigative methods are not cost-intensive, time-intensive, labour-intensive and torturous.

Can modern science and information technology come together and help intelligence agencies to gather crime-related information in an effective way, from a labour, cost and time point of view?

WHY iCOGNATIVE?

Based in Massachusetts, is a company called Brainwave Science. Its aim is to enable investigative agencies across the world to cut costs, reduce manpower requirements, reduce the number of pending cases, to help exonerate the innocent and to help get the guilty punished. Law enforcers want to tap into a suspect’s mind and “read” the invisible clues which link him or her to a crime? Brainwave Science has developed and market a technology named iCognative. Through this technology, investigators can identify or exonerate suspects based on measuring their brain-wave responses to crime-related images, words or phrases which are displayed on a computer screen. These inputs are also called stimuli.

iCognative has been tested by several US Federal Government agencies and found to be over extremely accurate. It is the latest in technological crime solving. iCognative provides an accurate and reliable process to conduct criminal investigations without invasive procedures and biases. iCognative is a technology which can help all departments such as law enforcement, national security, border control, immigration, cybercrime, fraud, espionage, counter-terrorism, human and drug trafficking.

The results of iCognative are 99.9% accurate, fully reliable and are free of any false-positives or false-positives. The technology declares results in two outcomes, either ‘information present’ or ‘information absent’. This represents if crime-related information in known to the test subject or it is not.

The test subject is made to wear a specialized headset and shown the stimuli on a computer screen. Upon seeing the familiar stimulus, the test subject’s brain responds to the same and causes unique electrical activity which is measured by the headset. If the stimulus is unfamiliar then the brain response is different. The iCognative computer analyses the brain responses and reports a result at the end of a 45-minute test. Using this test, not only can the investigating agencies determine if the test subject possesses crime-specific information or not, but also help identify the structure and the hierarchy of the criminal organizations that the suspects may belong to.

iCognative is applicable for intelligence gathering by all sorts of law enforcement departments as it has been found to be applicable to 85-90% of all civil and criminal cases.

In the iCognative test of each of the arrested trafficking suspects, the stimuli can be trafficking-related details like the entry and exit ports of the drug shipments in Canada and places where these drugs are known to be processed like labs, known peddlers further down the supply chain, busted drug labs, known details of traffickers higher up or lower down the supply chain, CCTV, email and phone records of the four men, etc.

The use of iCognative on a national and international scale with cooperation from other countries can help to rapidly discover linkages between organizations, understand supply chains, detect traffickers and their modus operandi.

iCognative is the best and most efficient way to amass information regarding past crimes. Law Enforcement agencies must take help of modern science in order to differentiate between the wrongdoers and the innocents.
