Three intelligence methodologies for border defence and border security
AbstractThe main security problem that any state faces today is protecting its
citizens in countering organised crime and terrorism. Wars between states are less frequent than in previous eras. Border defence and border security are distinct missions requiring different forces with different training and different equipment. Border defence is predominately against the armed forces of other states requiring tanks, aircraft and ships. Traditionally, border security includes the mission roles of immigration, crime, agriculture, finance, disease control and terrorism. Intelligence gathering and analysis using three methodologies - trends and patterns, frequency, and probability – provides a solution to the large and expensive armed forces for territorial border defence and defines the ability to succeed in border security.
