Alysyn Bourque: Accomplished Woman Is Her Middle Name And Intelligence Is Her Game!
by Ralph Thomas

The modern world has become a dangerous place. When you go to bed at night it’s important for all Americans to understand that there are people who want to kill you simply for what you believe, who you are and what you said today. Many people do not understand that the United States is in the middle of war like we have never fought before. It is a war against people who have no country and no borders. It is a war we are fighting in which it is tuff to even identify the enemy. When I go to bed at night, I usually feel a little safer because I know that Alysyn Bourque is on the job. I am usually up until 1 AM C.S.T. working but when I finally hit the pillow, Alysyn Bourque has has already gotten up and she is working. Alysyn is a unique kind of spy. She is a private intelligence gatherer. Alysyn Bourque is Director of Communications for Griffith Colson Intelligence Service. This private intelligence gathering agency monitors the world situation. They are much like the White House Situation room in the private sector.

Spy Gear Allows You to Spy Hard

OUSTON - In the heyday of Agent 007, hidden cameras were clunky and bugs were big. Not anymore. Now, surveillance is surreptitious and getting more so by the minute. Cody Woods, with Austins Spy Exchange, gave FOX 26 a guided tour of all things sneaky, starting with what he calls the smallest camera in existence - the size of your thumb.


Forensic Case Review & Analysis for
Criminal Defense Investigations-
By Brandon A. Perron A Pursuit Magazine Article

In Criminal defense investigations a comprehensive examination of the prosecution’s evidence can reveal the flaws of inconsistencies, errors, and omissions. An attack upon the very foundation of their case can topple the inverted pyramid supporting the theory of prosecution. It is important to remember that the documents provided via the discovery process are in fact evidence and not mere reading material for informational purposes only. The police reports and all supporting documentation are in fact the very core of the prosecution’s case. Therefore, every report, statement, photograph, and document is “evidence” and should be treated as such.

Data, Knowledge and the Private Investigator
I’m a reader. I tear through a magazine in a couple of hours, reading, consuming, and drinking in information. I like to discover what others are thinking, what topics are hot, what’s happening in the greater world…outside of our little burg of Nashville. I surf industry related blogs. I subscribe to several business related magazines. I try to blaze through a good fiction novel every other week or so. I consume information. I’m a reader.

Mortgage Faud Flourishes -PI Newswire Article
Yet recent data from the Lexis-Nexis Mortgage Asset Research Institute in Chicago show that the incidence of fraud in 2009 increased 7 percentage points over 2008’s levels. In 2008, fraud reports rose 26 percentage points from the previous year.

Practical Marketing Tips for the Practical Private Investigator
Probably now more than any other time over the last several years, private investigators and process servers are required to become their own cheerleaders. In good economic times, the professionals in these fields have concentrated on surveillance, skips, and other related areas of operations and those services sold themselves. But with times being lean everywhere, they are having to put on yet another hat in order to not only keep their sales numbers up, but in some cases, even to survive. This seldom used hat, or in some cases brand new hat, is the hat of marketing and advertising.

Why We Need Secure Identification A PI Newswire Post
New York police have served warrants dozens of times to an elderly couple looking for suspects the couple has no knowledge of. “Police have knocked on their door 50-plus times since the couple moved into their home in 2002, looking for suspects or witnesses in murder, robbery and rape cases, according to reports. The couple has been visited by law enforcement up to three times a week. Authorities are investigating the possibility that the Martins’ identities may have been stolen.”

TOP SECRET WARFARE AND THE LAW:
AN ARTCHIX COVER FEATURE


There are now three armies in America: the regular volunteer force, the secret volunteer force — the folks at the Joint Special Operations Command — and the paramilitaries and contractors used by the CIA. Three armies, a welter of conflicting laws, domains and territories. The scariest part of the Ellen Nakashima’s story on Friday on how Air Force cyber warriors dismantled a joint CIA-Saudi honey pot website is what it reveals about oversight, priorities and law — particularly in the realm of cyberspace. Three armies doing battle against an enemy, and institutionally, against each other.

AN ARTCHIX SPECIAL COVER FEATURE: A BRIEF HISTORY OF ESPIONAGE & SPIES OF YESTERYEAR
Spying has played a major role in world history. In most cases, the most effective way for a spy to get his job done is to become a double agent. Also known as “moles,” double agents pledge allegiance to one country or agency while secretly working for someone else. Having a double agent working against you can be devastating. There is no telling just how much sensitive information the agent will manage to dig-up or just how much damage the mole will inflict.
