November 14th Meetup – Austin’s Regional Intelligence Center: An Overview

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.

Apple Patents Technology To Remotely Disable Your Cellphone Camera

Apple has patented a technology that can remotely disable the camera on your cell phone via an infrared signal. Ostensibly created to prevent people from taking pictures and video at concerts and movie theaters, or to prevent students from cheating on tests, it’s only a matter of time before this is used by law enforcement to prevent the lawful recording of their actions or by governments to prevent protestors from documenting retaliation against their assemblies.

EFF-Austin Hosts A Performance Of The Play Privacy Settings!

EFF-Austin board member Heather Barfield has conceived and directed a new play at The Vortex theater titled Privacy Settings. Based on the ancient Greek play of Prometheus Bound, Privacy Settings imagines Edward Snowden in the titular role of Prometheus, the titan whole stole fire from the gods and gifted it to mankind. The play is inspired by the actions and punishments of contemporary whistle-blowers, advocates for digital privacy rights and perversions of American civil liberties. Privacy Settings offers a “surveillance fun house” with opportunities for unique interactive experiences. Some of these experiences include actionable tips about how you can increase your digital privacy from the moment you walk out of the play later that evening.

EFF-Austin has managed to obtain a special deal for our followers to see the play for the low price of $10 a person on Thursday, June 16th at 8:00pm. On the night of the show you can mention that you’re with EFF-Austin to the Box Office and they will allow you to purchase the discounted tickets, which are being held for our group in our name. EFF-Austin board member Kevin Welch will be your host for the evening and will arrive at 6:30pm to lead a pre-show hour of drinks, socialization, and dinner at the adjacent Butterfly Bar and Patrizi’s Italian food trailer. Following the play, EFF-Austin president Jon Lebkowsky will lead a talkback to discuss the issues raised by the play.

We encourage everyone in the Austin tech community, as well as anyone who wants to learn more about the modern surveillance state and the increasingly large impact it’s going to have on our lives, to attend.

Please RSVP only if you are planning to attend, we are trying to get an accurate headcount.
