CRIME MIRRORED IN DATA
Combating weapons, drugs or human trafficking is a major challenge. Attempting to piece together the information to expose a trafficking ring and halt illegal activities is a difficult and time-consuming task. Recruiting, coordinating, soliciting and selling are coordinated activities that require communication and interaction by those involved, some of which is conducted online. A single, subtle activity along this chain may not set off alarm bells, but with the right technology, investigators can connect the dots.
SOLVING THE PUZZLE WITH AI
Voyager Labs platforms use AI to help investigators distill deep meaningful insights on targets, groups and narratives that can lead to a full mapping of trafficking activities and infrastructure. By starting with a target or a topic of interest, then deep diving into affiliations, connections, locations, and activity, the entire trafficking ring can be exposed, along with critical insights that can help determine the best time to intercept their activity.
TELLING THE STORY BEHIND THE WEAPON
A gun purchased illegally in a large U.S. city is used in a murder in a small town miles away. The purchaser and the shooter have no apparent connection. How did the gun get there? How can we use this information to expose the trafficking ring involved?
Analysts using VoyagerAnalytics were able to piece together meaningful information about the crime weapon and the suspects involved in the case, including mediators which connected seemingly disparate groups in the two locations and thus exposed an intricate and well-hidden trafficking ring using nothing but online information. Using these valuable insights, they were then able to counter the supply chain and routes taken by the gun smugglers and eventually halt their operation.
