Papal Message in a Security Bubble...

Papal Message In a Security Bubble
By Nick Ashton, Founder, CEO, Tracometry Group of Companies.

So I was surfing the web on the security of the Pope and I came across fine reporting, copied right out of the Brazilian Security Handbook of Papal Protection, (B.S.H.P.P.). I am now looking for a full page newspaper ads for every single move that the Pope and his unassuming group will make.

M & M, one of our deep rooted security guys, made the statement regarding the volume of police officers, 44,000, that they can all join hands and let the Pope walk along the streets to his hotel.  That is personal attention beyond extreme!

The papal visit presents a unique set of highly complicated security concerns never before seen in Brazil.  Is not the Pope a man, who represents the largest religion of Brazil, Catholicism?  I believe it was Time Rice of Jesus Christ Superstar fame, which stated lyrically, that he is just man. Referring to Christ of course.   

It will be the Argentines' first international trip as Pope and the fact it’s to Brazil, the largest Catholic country, makes it an incredibly high profile journey. It's also a long time he'll be spending in Brazil - seven days in Rio from July 22-28, with a packed schedule to events - and coincides directly with the World Youth Day gathering in the city, expected to bring in upwards of 3 million Catholic youth to the city.

To place all the different agencies, including 44,000 police officers is insane!  The more people tripping over each other to provide the security of the Pope is asking for trouble.  I did hear they are also using doppelgangers.

You can Google that and I will wait….

Body double, got it?  So do not wear a white suit during that week, could cause some problems.

I am trying to invoke some levity in an extremely serious situation.  Firstly, CYROPOL would not publish its security plan in any way, shape or form. 

Stealth is the key!  Our services are in the deepest cover and whether we are working with the Brazilians or not, listening never did anyone any harm.

It is imperative that the Brazilian authorities scrap the current plan!  Or maybe they have and this is all a ruse!

There is a far better way to protect the Pope and not draw the attention that is being created at this time.  Learn now, you cannot afford for any mistakes.  With the volume of personnel involved, exponentially, you are in trouble. Ask Jimmy Carter about security missions with overkill.

We are repeating the plan only to show the problem and plead that full changes are made or have they already?

The information below has been revealed in recent weeks from reporting in the Brazil media, coupled with conversations with top federal and state public security officials.

The Papal Plan of Protection

As soon as Pope Francis steps foot in Brazil, he will immediately be guarded 24 hours a day by a 60 member team of specially trained Federal Police agents with capabilities of "close quarters" protection of high profile subjects, and ability to "eliminate" any immediate threat. These agents will provide a "bubble of security" around the Pope at all times until he boards his plane to head back to Italy. An unknown number of those agents will be "within arm’s length" of Pope Francis at all times, including while he is giving mass, if they deem it necessary.

Federal officials have designated a Level 1 status – the highest security alert available – for the pope's visit.

Four military helicopters will be available to the Pope at all times to whisk him around the city. One of the choppers will be equipped with an "aerial hospital" should the need arise, the other three will always fly with the Pope but two will act as decoys, carrying the federal police agents and the Pope’s immediate, most important staff.

Ten other police and military helicopters will available in Rio providing backup security and reconnaissance, tracking the Pope’s movements and surrounding areas.

Somewhere between 8,500 and 12,000 military soldiers will be deployed to Rio as well. President Dilma Rousseff has declared Guaratiba – a suburb community 60km from Rio where the Pope is expected to give a mass to 3 million people - a "Guarantee of Law and Order" zone, allowing the military to temporarily partake in public security and policing activities within the zone. Other key World Youth Day events will also take place in the municipality.
Brazil’s specially-trained and well-equipped National Force security officers - based in Brasilia and under the auspices of the Ministry of Justice - will deploy somewhere between 1,200 and 1,600 officers to Rio to act as a "super police force" to guard areas where they are needed during pope movements.

The state of Rio will have 44,000 officers (both street police and investigative officers) available and working in rotating shifts. All vacation and non-essential training days have been cancelled during the week the Pope visits Rio. “Any and all personnel we have at our disposal will be working,” one local official said.

Rio's much-feared special force police unit, called BOPE, has been in recent weeks doing security operations in rough neighborhoods that are in or around where the Pope will be visiting.

And Brazil’s national intelligence service, ABIN, will have plain clothed agents in Rio, and a command center. They have already been in communications with neighboring country intelligence services about sharing of information of potential threats.

When it comes to Pope Francis' visit to Brazil, a simple man who shuns security and the treasures of the office of Pope, Brazil is a country giving off the impression they are leaving nothing to risk, and taking no chances.

In fact, there is no such thing as 100% security.

Ah, Brazil, the gateway to what?

Brazil, the key to South America’s rise or fall
By Nick Ashton, Founder, CEO, Tracometry Group of Companies.

It is not the sand between your toes on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro that is rubbing and making them raw.  Nor is it the statistical government information
on how Brazil has brought people out of poverty or the price of a football ticket.  It is not just any excuse to riot and kick the rear end of officials in Brasilia, Sao Paulo or any other city in this South American hot spot.  The unrest and failure are staring a continent in the face!  Ignoring it or attacking it with batons and Water cannons with not make it go away.

We have all over extended ourselves at one time or another, typically refused any assistance or help in a solution from someone that knows much more than we do.  Pigheadedness is a trait of the human race, especially men.  The Plans of mice and men, especially the mouse.  It is the cheese of the kudos at the end of the proverbial rainbow that we all chase, forgetting the steel bar of the mouse trap that will come crashing down on our necks, when we allow greed, corruption and blindness to get in the way.  Stop and ask any three blind mice and hear what the answer is.

Ah, Brazil, the gateway to what?

The nation of Brazil is up to its neck in societal mud!  The stinky type and are scrambling because their dreams and aspirations are in the hands of businessmen’s investments, where some of the profits are being salted away in politicians back pockets. 

One click and Brazil is the primer for an explosion of rejection and failure!  Why?  Simply because they have taken too on too much without real expert advice and change agents that make the difference.

Economic factors are always at the forefront and corruption begets corruption.

When you have four major events that are in the spotlight of the world occurring in such a short time span and economically to achieve the expected results, you must gamble away your heritage, with odds that no bookmaker will take, something is radically wrong!

Your football team can show you every single mistake you are making.  They are right in front of your eyes and you are ignoring each kick of the ball, every piece of strategic piece of footwork and allowing the front office staff to play your game for you.  Businessmen with money to burn, not even their money, it is the future of Brazil and the whole of South America is at stake and you are allowing the water boys to call the shots!

Right now, the Confederations Cup is being played in Brazil and look what has happened in a few short nights.  Riots on the streets, not just in one city but cities across Brazil. 

Next, you have the Pope paying a visit and thinking that throwing a large force of law enforcement as a circle around him, you will protect your religious investment.  I understand that Brazil will guard the Pope with 44,000 police officers, that sounds like a massive undertaking and it is.  You would think that this is the perfect protection.  It is not!  Mass protection has so many pitfalls, it is doomed from start to finish and the same bookmakers will not accept you wager for success.  It is difficult enough to have a jury of your peers to agree, let alone 44,000 police officers on a strategy of protection!

The World Cup is the next event that Brazil is hosting.  Named as 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil All in One Rhythm.  Sadly it might have rhythm, but it is out of tune on how security in this day and age must be accomplished. 

The opening match is in Sao Paulo on June 12, 2013, just under one year away.  Yes, Brazil is concerned about the security and even FIFA has indicated they will seek assistance for the participating nations in regard to stabilizing the events.


 If you are the host country it is your responsibility to control your own destiny.  All for just over one month of attention and a gamble that your plans will work and the investment was all worth it.

Now in 2016, the Summer Olympics and Paralympics opens.  The infrastructure developments for the preparation of the Games are huge. There will be more than 100,000 people directly involved in the organization of the Games, including 70,000 volunteers. Millions of people in the city, around the country and across the continent of South America will be reached and inspired by the Games.

More than 10,500 athletes from approximately 205 nations around the world are expected to come to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, to compete in front of many thousands of media professionals, sports fans and tourists from all over the globe.

I am not pouring salt on the wound of security planning, I am pouring out my professional heart to ask that Brazilian officials consider the use of experts with more security knowledge in their pinky finger to work hand in hand and create the success that the Brazilian people and all South America deserve.

I know, it is about money.  Yes, security is the stepchild of the gumshoe culture.  Cheap, gets you killed!  The gumshoe detective of the hotel, with his office under the stairwell and a nail on the wall holds the receipts of the previous month’s expenditures.  The picture does inspire confidence!

Are you not listening to the streets of Brazil?  They are crying out with messages of displeasure and all you want to do is send in the military style police and crush them.  They tried that in Syria, have you not been watching the news?

Time is not on your side, it is on the side of those that wish to disrupt and cause chaos and mayhem.

Let me explain how you can overcome all of these problems.

There is a worldwide company that is so clandestine, they themselves do not know they exist.  The team is so well matched and communicates in ways you never knew possible.  They get their information from the starting point of the streets.  Information gathering at its utmost best and believe you me, they know what to do with it in real time.  No data silos or file cabinets to hideaway the facts of the moment.  All processed, evaluated and actioned!

CYROPOL, is more than a fancy name that goes back to 239 BC.  It is a well-oiled social machine that pulses at every turn.  Team members are in their positions for a reason, they know their job and are focused on all aspects of delivering the desired and demanded results.

You cannot afford not to have CYROPOL lead your security blanket and bring leadership and communications to all.  This is not just a onetime event for Brazil, South America’s future lay at the feet of success or failure.  I know what I would choose and I know who I trust.

It is reality time and mark my words, your choices are slim and the clock is ticking. 

CYROPOL and Brazil need the boots on the ground now!

Stop Losing The Race!

By Nick Ashton, Founder, CEO,
Tracometry Group of Companies.

If you feel you are a success right now, what if you had real time information?  When you get home, do you sit down and watch Brian William’s on NBC, bring you the evening news?  How old is the information and how Breaking, is Breaking News?

When we hear that there is breaking news, they always state, they really don’t know if the facts they are reporting, are really the facts.  It is a race by each network to first, no matter if they are right or wrong!  It is a reactive world and information, whether you are law enforcement, government or corporations, to make profitable and concise decisions, you must have the correct information at your fingertips.

They say the wife is always the last know about her husband having an affair or vice versa, and the subsequent divorce.  Yes, even that close to each other, his or her friends know more than they do!

Just think, as a business if you had up-to-the–minute information, which could be analyzed, verified and utilized, how much more successful would you be?
The same ideals are for law enforcement and government, to have at their fingertips current information to be able to act on the real time facts.  Old news is like chasing your tail, you never catch it.

Proactivity, on the scene information collection is required and I know you all believe it is not possible, it is!  It is called “Atmospheric Noise” and has been in clandestine operations for several years in the terroristic theaters of the world.  Front line information gathering at a rate never before thought possible.  It is not just the gathering, it is the instant dissemination for review, analyzing and acting upon with Fresh Eyes and solutions.

CYROPOL is here, working, solving and saving lives.

It is a full solution for information, data and photographic collection in the field by Military, Counter-Intelligence, Homeland Security, Law Enforcement, Public Safety, Municipalities, Corporations, Law Firms, Medical Facilities and Investigators.

CYROPOL is the Perfection of Proactive Information Collection and Dissemination in Real Time!

Yes, we believe in surveillance, information collection at its best, to be on top of situations.  Just like a well-oiled team, we must have the opposition’s information to win, to collect the trophy, even in Little League.
