For Whom The Bell Tolls?

For Whom The Bell Tolls?
By Nicholas Ashton, CEO, CommSmart Global Group

Who will blow up the bridge, shoot down a drone or attack neighboring countries this time? 

Iran is certainly at the top of the list after the Saudi foreign minister stated his dislike for the nation in no uncertain terms.

Iran has a President, who is no different from those he has followed, same culture, and ideology.

Even secure airports are under attack and what we are able to carry on planes! 

France has seen more terrorist attacks and the individual was on their list, which it seems they forgot and just continued on their way.  Just like making a list for grocery shopping and going to the store and realizing you left it at home.  What you do then, is muddled through and miss several items.

The fact is no one is listening to what is going on the world regarding the citizens of the nations who are in turmoil, regarding their politicians and leaders!

It is the chatter and associated writings of the people, which is leading to the dissension that is reverberating our world.

No matter if you are a corporation or a world government, knowledge is power and you can attain knowledge by understanding what the concerns of all are. 

People have voices and use them to spread their concerns, wants and needs.

Let us remind you that the Shah of Iran was deposed, Mohammad Rezā Shāh Pahlavī was the last Shah of Iran from 16 September 1941 until his overthrow by the Iranian Revolution on 11 February 1979.

Several factors contributed to strong opposition to Pahlavi among certain groups within Iran, the most notable of which were U.S. and UK support for his regime, clashes with Islamists, and increased communist activity.

By 1979, political unrest had transformed into a revolution which, on 17 January, forced Pahlavi to leave Iran. Soon thereafter, the Iranian monarchy was formally abolished, and Iran was declared an Islamic republic led by Ayatollah Khomeini. Facing likely execution should he return to Iran, he died in exile in Egypt, who’s President, Anwar Sadat, had granted him asylum.

Ayatollah Khomeini's overthrow was completed by audio cassette tapes of his sermons given whilst in exile in Paris, France.  A world leader was not listening and suffered the consequences as they still do today.

We are not learning from history and as you know, history does repeat itself. 

The Arab world is teetering on the edge of even more discourse and needs more understanding of how Atmospheric Noise Collection, Chatter on the Streets and why it assists all in resolving.

It is not just the words of the people, it is their actions, which are revealed in violent actions against what they believe are the oppressors.  Even in the USA, the L.A. riots wrecked their own neighborhoods, doing more harm to themselves.  London suffered the same aggression last year.  In the end, it is the stability of communities, regions, cities, and nations that are at risk.

Prior knowledge is a real power, timely information gathering can stop these senseless actions.  No one likes problems creeping up on them, as the initial reaction is one of those, spur of the moment decisions that we all regret.

CommSmart Global Group makes the difference in the timing of events, in fact, with our means of chatter collection, predictive plans can be made with full knowledge.


WE are in the NOW and
KEEP YOU; in the KNOW…

We Must Exhume, the Former Trust & Respect for Our Communities & Law Enforcement, Which Have Gone Before Us!



We Must Exhume, the Former Trust & Respect for Our 
Communities & Law Enforcement, Which Have Gone Before Us!

Ideas, initiatives, and intelligence are always among us. In many cases not really a ‘new’ idea but one of using existing thoughts and ideas and adding to them.  Many that have gone before us have had brilliant ideas, innovative suggestions and never moved forward.  It is all about ‘timing’. 

Society has changed so rapidly and the effective means of communications brings these societal changes before our eyes have moved like even Edison or Tesla could have ever comprehended.

Having stood in the same laboratory that Edison created so many of his patents, walking in the gardens and by the river in Fort Meyers, his summer home, it opens a thought process, even with your eyes open.

In the world of policing society, we have lost sight of the reason we require the police in the first place!  It has become a ‘Them and Us’ world and hurdling toward such a dangerous outcome. 

Criminals are as up-to-date as the latest ‘app’ and type of gun available.  Thank goodness they are not that ‘bright’, in the intelligence department. 

Saying that though, law enforcement does not have access to the same tools because of depilated budgets and the slowness of the political machines.

Police chiefs are hired by local cities and work with a cloud over their head of the council or commission to which they serve and can be ‘fired at will’.  The decisions have always a connection to political concerns and not always on the community itself.  Meaning, the community has no say in the police department as such.

The Sheriff is elected by the people and even the elected period is short, they like all have to campaign for the next round of votes, they have always a niggling thought of how this will be accepted by the voters.

We must remember that ‘the People are the Police and the Police are the People’.  It might have been stated in 1829 by Sir Robert Peel, the father of modern day policing, it stands true and must be readopted to bring us back to a formal society regarding criminality.

It is about TRUST & RESPECT!

Police Best Practice believes in the Network Sharing Solution, it is now a stronger search engine format than you have ever seen or touched!

Everything you require is encapsulated within NSS, DMV, NCIC, HIDTA, Safety Net, LPR, PNC, CRIMINT, Accurint local crime and public data with any other databases you wish to add. As you action your normal verification process via LENSS, it accesses all these steps on one screen, smartphone, laptop, PC Desk it works with all.

Within one operation, no additional programs to use, no more retyping names, vehicles tag or other vital information, right in the palm of the hand and at the
fingertips.

It is the additional information that is the key, every report and officer’s notes are matched in real-time and alert the officer of every interaction the individual has had with law enforcement, from traffic stops to infractions, with important detail from the notes which will be compared and matched.

Checkboxes cannot do that. The simple visual ability, comments, location, associates are brought right to you. Preparing you for the true statements
which have previously been stated. This is ensuring your safety as to who you really are encountering.

Trust & Respect from all, not taking sides.  After all, we live together, side by side, shop at the supermarkets, eat at the same restaurants, use the same entertainment facilities and send our children to the same schools.

Is there an issue in society?  Yes, and none of us are perfect or ever will be.
Public safety is a priority and having the facts at hand, with proactive enhancement results this way:
  • Bring back Trust & Respect of communities
  • Save Lives
  • Solving crimes expeditiously
  • Create a myriad of necessary reports
  • Augment officer safety
  • Utilize Information/data NOW 

CommSmart Global Group can and will make logical use of the data NOW!

Effectively on used all fronts, the data/information and written narratives with public data become an integral daily part of proactive Digital Policing.



We are proficient not only in analytics, but we also encompass cyber from all of the good, bad and ugly angles with IT archeological data aspects.  If that is not enough, our law enforcement expertise is second to none, both from the London Metropolitan Police and US law enforcement understands of yesterday, today, and the future, which is Digital Policing.

Social media interaction and analytics are now the foundations of communications both social and criminal.  That is why it also plays a major role in all we do.  All government and law enforcement must embrace, understand and importantly use to interact with the communities.

This is not some entertainment programming that has appeared since Hollywood or television programming created ‘Minority Report’ or Fox’s ‘APB’. 

It was 22 years ago that our initial development created aggressive crime analytics with the ability for street-level officers to have information at hand.  Back then we had no mobile phones, so it was slower and very manual. 

The importance is it worked and proficiently!

Today, we now have the Smartphone which places all information in the palm of the officer’s hand, immediately.

Our National Sharing Solution has taken what has been working extremely well and moved to the next step for making a definitive difference in the use of crime data, combining public data and placing into the hands of law enforcement securely.  Oh, you also do not need to be a ‘geek’ to operate, no disrespect to our learned IT friends!

We work alongside Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, Public Safety Commissioner & the Dept. of Public Safety, Dept. of Intelligence (Fusion Center), IT management (NIBRS) and other law enforcement management and will open their eyes to the Digital Policing Attributes for Transformational Policing which brings them beyond the criminal deficiencies of budget and staffing cuts.

Our team of management, analysts and an overview of both Social Media Interaction/Analytics, Crime Analytics, Predictive Analysis, and Community Crime Mapping with Anonymous Tip lines. Our presentation is conversational, passionate, with true street-level experience and a listening ear.

Yes, a two-way street for sharing from all sides the desires wants, dreams and capabilities required.  No holding back!

So don’t you hold back!  Converse and communicate and see why we have the success you and your community deserve.

Stop Being In the Middle & Blooded…

Stop Being In the Middle & Blooded…

by Nicholas Ashton, Police Best Practice

Whether it is on the streets of London with the stabbing and shooting deaths, in London's Houses of Parliament, the US Capitol or Europe's Belgian HQ, liberal politics and supposed “do-gooder” politicians have generated a huge social, cultural, community safety, economic and homeland security difficulties, without increasing our countries internal safety measures to respond or even deal with these increased violent exposures. 

Brexit, US Politics or EU kindergarten antics, it is leading us all down a garden path to shed that has been visited many times before.  We still do not learn from history or the mistakes of our forefathers. 

What we are experiencing in the United States right now, (soon to be the repeated experiences of Europe’s mayhem) is a growing imbalance of increased risks as compared to safety measures to mitigate these increased jeopardies!
It is as if, the politicians and leaders, could care less for the chaos they have created and warning signs that have been ignored for decades.  

The fact that sections of society who are expectant of entitlements and what their pathetic leaders have promised them is the prime example.  Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, and the supposed gospel believing preachers that do nothing but instill hatred in those that are dumb enough to listen and hang on every word they espouse.  It is the incited anger that is triggered by ill-informed individuals looking for any excuse to be violent and destroy their own neighborhood.

With them not having the foresight or intelligence to know what is really going on the streets and beats of the public safety officer is a total shame and failure of humankind.  Stop taking the easy-way-out, passing the buck and lining your pockets.  Your pockets and wallets are being filled with the shame of your actions.

Once upon a time, we had early warning systems for the possible nuclear attacks from the Russians and children were taught to hide under their desks at school if the heard the siren.  The societal siren has been whaling and you not only have turned a blind eye, but you have also tuned out the sounds of disaster.

As a nation we spend more time on the weather forecast and sports then we do on festering issues!

So you have unrest on the streets and beats of every town USA, Europe, and the Middle East with the mislead communities attacking what they think is the cause, as politicians look on, rubbing their hands at the visual anarchy below.  In the middle is law enforcement, who, the politicians see as the battering ram to force the rioters back to their ghettos and beat and kill those that step out of the liberal created political lines.

Law enforcement is bearing the brunt of miss created banter by those that cowardly hide until the unrest has been quelled.  Then, they step forward to the media microphones and television cameras and commend themselves for taking the actions to stop their own created mayhem.  

Whilst the police are being bludgeoned by indoctrinated miscreants and their hidden for-profit leadership.

Let us return to that early warning system, Police Best Practice, CommSmart Global Group, has one, a working one that gives you all the information/data of all that is happening on your beats and streets and across borders. 

No, this is not some cockamamie sales pitch by the slick salesmen who are striving to be liberal politicians and line their pockets with ill-earned gains.

It is a productive passion that drives our abilities to work beside you in changing your communities and upholding the laws, solving crimes, maintaining the status quo on levels.

We are a group that has street level global law enforcement experience, proven decades of reality in both Europe, USA, and Great Britain.  The experience that is straight talking, logical and we leave the Bovine Slurry at the door!

It is all about CHANGE! 

Stepping up and being coached and mentored in old fashion basic policing and usability of cutting edge technology that all understand, use and will change their lives and those they serve.

It is an overall monitoring system, which includes street smarts, crime mapping, analytics, predictive analysis, and social media monitoring, collectively giving you a Dashboard of incidents, opportunities, and solutions, which are the key, when you are visually and academically in control so you are not flying blind in this scary encroaching disastrous environment.

It's law enforcement’s duty to restore some level of balance at the community level to prevent crimes and terrorist influenced attacks if possible. We fully understand that security is never 100%, but by taking advantage of years of experience from the lessons learned using analytics at the national level, combined with your local RMS/CAD data, local organizations can access and share critical information focused on their communities and not be dependent on the willingness of federal agencies.

It is here, loud a clear with a simple direct message, stop being just second rate and guessing, although you have the smarts, CommSmart Global Group gives you and maintains the advantages that are demanded for today. 

Importantly I know the questions are always cost.  Affordable and if you like, simply less than the price of a cup of coffee per sworn officer, per week.  Yes, that cost effective and does not leave a bitter taste in your budget.

Contact and discuss, societal safety is running out of time and that means your safety as well.
