Hello world!


United States of America

Washington, D.C.

WELCOME to the Criminal Justice International Associates (CJIA-USA) interactive/sharing BLOG.  The purpose of this site is to encourage each of you to share your proactive opinions, thoughts, ideas, suggestions, and feelings on strategic issues facing your world/homeland as it relates to assessing threat, safety, crime, and mitigating world political issues that pose related vulnerability concerns.

You are encouraged to sound off!  No one is to be judged as to your opinion.  However, I encourage healthy and spirited debate and opinion that will genuinely reflect a serious compassion for a very fragile world that we all must share.

CJIA  (Criminal Justice International Associates) is a global threat mitigation firm.  We are practitioners, senior trainers, and experts in a vast array of counterterrorism measures and intelligence related issues, as well as law enforcement training ranging from operational and administration to intelligence.

In more specific detail, we provide conceptual and technical expertise as trainers, consultants, and practitioners in counterterrorism, threat/vulnerability assessment, surveillance detection, attack recognition, site/route analysis and design considerations; surveillance/surveillance detection, analysis of infrastructure security operations, espionage indicators/methods and prevention, analysis/perspectives/strategies of potential adversaries, international travel support/analysis, analysis of intrusive vulnerability (personal/site), intrusive counter-criminal operations, and related security solutions.

We remain focused on the identification of trends, capabilities, intentions, and  tactics/strategies based on threat indicators involving hostile force(s)/groups and other adversaries.   Complex training is conducted/designed, within a situational awareness environment, with a specialization in applying advanced law enforcement perspective to the execution of counter criminal/counterinsurgency, narcoterrorism, and countering intelligence-applied “tradecraft” issues.  We are also consultants on the investigative direction, attack, and  neutralization of complex criminal and insurgent/terrorist groups.

A short list of many of our major overseas (OCONUS) assignments have included operations in Sarajevo, Bosnia; Amman, Jordan; Athens, Greece; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Khartoum, Sudan; and Tokyo, Japan, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, Israel; Beirut, Lebanon; Kuwait; Cairo and Alexandria, Egypt; Karachi, Peshawar, Islamabad and Lahore, Pakistan; Pristina, Kosovo; Jakarta, Indonesia; Ulaan Bator, Mongolia; Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Abuja, Nigeria; Niamey, Niger; Rwanda and Burundi; Bahrain; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Caracas, Venezuela; La Paz, Bolivia; and several cities in Mexico.

I am particularly interested in areas of concern related to Latin America; most specifically, Mexico; the northern cone of Central America; Venezuela, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, Argentina (Tri-Border with Paraguay and Brasil), and Cuba.  All locations of your choice are also encouraged! Of course the U.S. border with Mexico and Canada is of paramount concern as well…

Please feel free to view my published archives that deal with much of the above over the past seven (7) years (   As well, I publish an international column (generally) each Monday at   Please fell free to sound off on previous OpEd pieces published as far back as you like.  I am certainly available and willing to share my experiences as a practitioner. trainer, consultant, expert, and Keynote Speaker on all of the above.

I look forward to hearing from you!  También hablo, leo, y escribo español/castellano fluido.
