Story Highlights “One of our main strategies and pillars is to re-establish services such as solid waste management; citizen security and safety, that is, more community policing, neighbourhood watches; community groups; recreational activities as well as education and training programmes, to ensure that the people in these areas are fully engaged,” he pointed out. Deputy Chairman, Zones of Special Operations (ZOSOs) Social Intervention Committee, Omar Sweeney, says the various initiatives being undertaken in Mount Salem and Denham Town, where a ZOSO is currently in effect, are aimed at re-establishing essential services to these communities.Mr. Sweeney, who was addressing a JIS Think Tank on Tuesday (February 27), pointed out that even before the ZOSO, the communities were benefiting from engagements being undertaken by various entities as a means of effecting positive changes.He said that through the work of the Committee, the agencies that have been operating in these areas every day will now have a coordinated approach in providing the intervention that is needed, whether through work on the physical environment, skills and educational development or social services.“One of our main strategies and pillars is to re-establish services such as solid waste management; citizen security and safety, that is, more community policing, neighbourhood watches; community groups; recreational activities as well as education and training programmes, to ensure that the people in these areas are fully engaged,” he pointed out.Mr. Sweeney said that as the interventions are carried out, it is of utmost importance to ensure sustainability of the measures in order to ensure that the communities never retreat to where they were before.“So, as we build out the social fabric, what we want to ensure is that there are proper governance structures, community engagement, and the involvement of the requisite government agencies, non-governmental organisations and community-based organisations to form a nucleus and a core of practitioners that can help to re-establish services to the communities,” he pointed out.Mr. Sweeney said a key area of focus of the Committee is formalising services such as water and electricity.“A lot of this has to come through dialogue and engagement, and that is what many of the agencies are doing… . It is about utility regularisation, that is water and electricity supply, and already, some 160 persons in Mount Salem have now put their account in good standing and are in a formal relationship with the National Water Commission (NWC),” he noted.He said that initiatives to foster job creation, skills training and business development are also being undertaken.“We have a focus… on microenterprise development, so one of the programmes is targeted at this group as these communities have a lot of small shops and small businesses and need help in areas such as accounting, marketing and training persons to work with them.“It is about creating opportunities for persons to earn… have a livelihood, and so we want to use the programmes to create avenues and improve conditions in these communities,” Mr. Sweeney said.He noted that the objective of the interventions is to effect change and provide relief to residents. He said the services being delivered will empower people to solve their own problems and, ultimately, uplift their community.The Social Intervention Committee is charged with developing a sustainable development plan, which will include addressing issues related to health, the environment, social improvement, infrastructural development, education and economic development. He said that through the work of the Committee, the agencies that have been operating in these areas every day will now have a coordinated approach in providing the intervention that is needed, whether through work on the physical environment, skills and educational development or social services.

The government is concerned commercial drones made in China and used in the US are being used to steal data or infect networks with malware, according to CyberScoop and Politico. An advisory against using these drones would include Chinese drone maker DJI’s extensive portfolio, including the DJI Spark. and the DJI Mavic Air, which CNET has reviewed as being “a folding 4K mini drone that’s close to perfect.” The reported warning follows networking equipment from Chinese tech giant Huawei being blacklisted by the US government and Huawei essentially banned via an executive order from Trump last week, and Google removing Android updates from Huawei phones. Huawei is seeing a slight reprieve, though; the US Commerce Department has created a temporary license until Aug. 19 for Huawei to keep existing networks and provide software updates to existing phones, according to Reuters. DHS’ Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) reportedly put out an industry alert saying to “be cautious” when purchasing this drone technology. “They can contain components that can compromise your data and share your information on a server accessed beyond the company itself,” the advisory reportedly says. “Other concerns are that an organization is susceptible to data theft if the drone is transmitting unencrypted data or, more broadly, that a drone could increase the risk of a network being breached.” In a statement sent to CNET, a CISA spokesperson confirmed that it sent out the industry alert, saying it provided information on the “risks associated with using UAS technology manufactured in China and measures to reduce such risk”. On its unmanned aircraft systems page, CISA lists the threats of using drones as being weaponized or smuggling payloads, prohibited surveillance and reconnaissance, intellectual property theft, and intentional disruption or harassment. DJI says safety is the core of its technology. “The security of our technology has been independently verified by the US government and leading US businesses,” DJI said in a statement. “We give all customers full and complete control over how their data is collected, stored, and transmitted. For government and critical infrastructure customers that require additional assurances, we provide drones that do not transfer data to DJI or via the internet and our customers can enable all the precautions DHS recommends.” First published at 4:55 p.m. PT on May 20.
