Combat human trafficking with Chorus

25 million people are trafficked worldwide. In the United States alone, there are over 22,000 victims of trafficking and more than 4000 known traffickers roaming the country.

Shocking as these numbers are, they are likely only a fraction of the actual problem. Human trafficking is complex, dynamic and notoriously underreported.

Technology, particularly the internet and handset devices, play a major role in facilitating human trafficking. To disrupt this, police departments must be equipped with the tools to search, capture and analyze all digital data that can be used to prosecute against traffickers.

Yet, a recent study showed that only 10% of police departments have the necessary data-mining tools to interrogate data, and just 5% have software to reveal crucial connections between data.

 

 

 

Intelligence through data

The Chorus Intelligence Suite is proven to help law enforcement agencies solve human trafficking cases, faster. 

Made up of modular applications, the suite empowers anyone involved in an investigation to search digital evidence, anywhere online (including social media and the dark web) and capture, analyze and share it in one central location.

Use dynamic visualization to make logical connections to identify both victims and suspects, and produce courtroom-ready reports to expose criminal organizations.

How Chorus can help

Search any data, anywhere

Search and capture any open source data and store it in a read-only format in a secure, collaborative hub.

Any internal or external intelligence source, where access is permitted, can be searched. Examples include:

  • Consented data – LexisNexis, Pipl, Whooster, FullContact etc.
  • Social media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn etc.
  • Create bespoke connectors for internal databases

Choose a non-attributable network to remain anonymous and to conduct covert, online surveillance.

Cleanse, combine and connect digital data

Drag and drop your communications data into Chorus and custom cleansing rules will remove the noise and format it ready for in-depth analysis. Examples include:

  • Call data records – identify the inbound and outbound call history of suspected traffickers.
  • Cell site data – Track the location of a suspects phone against known locations of victims.
  • Handset downloads – Seize the phone of a suspect and perform an image or keyword search to find messages relating to trafficking.
  • CCTV – Track the movements of suspected traffickers eg: bank visits and cash withdrawals.
  • ALPR – Track a suspect’s vehicle and overlay with other data sets eg: cell site data.
  • Bank statements – Analyze billing data to identify suspicious transactions eg: wages going into forged victim accounts.

Dynamic visualization and reporting

Visualize and interrogate your data through timelines, maps, pivot tables and matrices to draw connections between suspects and victims.

For example, overlay call data and cell site locations on to maps to determine possible home locations of suspects and concentration of victims.

Or, overlay bank statements with cell site and CCTV information to show a suspected trafficker using a victim’s bank account.

Chorus integrates seamlessly with IBM i2 Analyst’s Notebook to offer further data enrichment and visualization. 

 

 

 

Store and share data in a collaborative hub

Chorus offers a single location for users to search, capture, store and share data, in the fastest, simplest and safest way possible.

A browser based tool, Chorus Hub can be accessed at any time, from any device, anywhere.

A unique cross-case function will also allow you to find where people, objects, locations and other events have appeared before to build intelligence.

Without Chorus, the work I undertook would have been much more difficult and protracted, adding considerable time delays to the investigation and stress to the victims.
