 This week, 500 surveillance cameras were activated on the NYC subway
 system to focus on pre-operational terrorist surveillance.  The
 surveillance technology is also operational on high-value targets (HVTs)
 in DC, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and London and is called TrapWire
 (  TrapWire is one of the most innovative tools
 developed since 9-11 to help mitigate terrorist threats.   From a
 protective intelligence perspective, TrapWire does have the ability to
 share information on suspicious events or suspects between cities.
 Operationally, the ability to identify hostile surveillance at one
 target set -- in multiple cities -- can be used to neutralize terror
 threats by interrupting the attack cycle.   Meaning, a suspect
 conducting surveillance of the NYC subway can also be spotted by
 TrapWire conducting similar activity at the DC subway, connecting the
 infamous dots.  An additional benefit of TrapWire is that the system can
 also be used to help "walk back the cat" after an attack to identify
 terrorist suspects and modus operandi.    I can also see the tool being
 very effective in identifying general street crime.
