This is why a surveillance state can’t be allowed to exist, it only works if the people running it are benevolent.
Our speaker this month will be Darryl Jamail. Darryl Jamail is the Commander of the Intelligence Division of the Austin Police Department. He was commissioned in 1994 and has served in numerous assignments including: Patrol Officer, Vehicular Homicide detective, Patrol and Investigations sergeant, Internal Affairs sergeant, and Director of Cadet Training, Commander of Violent Crimes, and Emergency Communications. His current responsibilities include the Austin Regional Intelligence Center, Tactical Intelligence Unit, Real Time Crime Center, and Emergency Planning and Response. He is certified by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement as a Master Peace Officer and Peace Officer Instructor.
Commander Jamail will be leading us all in a discussion about the role of Austin’s Regional Intelligence Center (ARIC) in local law enforcement. The ARIC is the local tri-county fusion center for Travis, Hays, and Williamson counties, and is involved in the coordination of intelligence gathering operations for 17 Public Safety Agencies. We will look at how modern technology has aided in the collection, consolidation, and analysis of public safety data, and how this analysis is used in modern law enforcement.
