Portrait for @Sicherheit F Horn
Jack of all Trades 75 Pentribution Club
I have been working in the private security industry since 2009 and switched to public transport security in 2017. In addition to this work, I am working as an expert for industry-related scientific work, as an author for security wikis and as a consultant. The development of security concepts, security standards and awareness concepts is a central theme throughout my professional career. In 2013 I completed my bachelor's degree in "Security Management" at the Berlin School of Economics and Law (HWR). In my professional activity during his studies, I specialized as a security consultant for the hotel industry and worked as a consultant for emergency management. In order to further develop my specialist knowledge, I studied at the Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences "Security Management" and graduated as a Master of Science with a focus on security awareness and building security management (security concepts). The focus of my master thesis was the profile direction "Business Continuity Management" with the development of emergency and crisis management models for public institutions. In 2017 I certified myself as "Expert for private security services" according to DIN EN ISO / IEC 17024. The English Magazine "The Professional Security Officer Magazine" described me as "one of the leading names in German security [...] with rapidly increasing international recognition" in May 2020.

The drug trade continues to flourish despite Corona and thanks to digital sales channels. In 2019, the offenses in this context continued to increase, with cocaine in particular increasing.

The German "Federal Criminal Police Office's report on drug crime 2019" shows an increase of 2.6% compared to the previous year.

Above all, the sales channels in the Darknet would take retail off the street and make investigations more difficult. The Berlin trend of so-called "coke taxis" (mobile delivery) would also increase constantly.

The federal government would like to continue to focus on prevention, especially in schools.

The North Rhine-Westphalian Office for the Protection of the Constitution warns of unorganised radicalisation among the Corona opponents.

The events of the last few months would have shown that the measures adopted by the federal government, to contain the pandemic, are viewed by its opponents as such a threat that individual terrorism cannot be ruled out.

After an analysis, the Berlin Office for the Protection of the Constitution classified the events on the stairs of the Reichstag on August 29, in the context of the Corona demonstration in the House of Representatives. According to the security authorities, the action was spontaneous and unpredictable. There were announcements on the Internet, but these were classified as verbal aggression together with the State Criminal Police Office.

A total of around 2,500 to 3,000 people from the Reich citizen scene and other right-wing extremist organizations took part in demonstrations in Berlin this weekend.

Germany: New right-wing NSU 2.0 threatening letters

The lawyer Başay-Yıldız is said to have received threatening letters with the signature NSU 2.0 at the end of June, despite moving and having a private address. This could possibly have been done by another unauthorized data request within the Hessian police.

This report comes as a surprise because a few weeks ago the police reported an investigation into two suspects from Landshut.

Staff shortages at the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution could become a security risk. Due to additional tasks such as the security check for other authorities (e.g. Federal Police), the internal security check for employees can only be carried out with a considerable delay.

The checks can be delayed for up to four years which could pose significant risks in the integrity of the authority.

Proceedings have started against a Berlin police officer before the Tiergarten district court for jointly committed and dangerous bodily harm. He allegedly has attacked an Afghan person in 2017 at S-Bahn station Karlshorst after a soccer game.

At that time, the state security had already started its investigation due to a xenophobic background. Important at this point: The accused officer was until 2016 a member of the "Right-Wing Extremism Investigation Group" (EG Rex), which also investigated the series of attacks in Neukölln.

According to a survey by the children's aid organization "Plan" among 1,000 respondents between 16 and 71 years of age, the fear of harassment, threats, and insults is great. Big cities like Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne or Munich stand out here. One in five respondents stated in the survey that they had been the victim of a crime such as insults, threats or harassment. Girls and women feel most unsafe on the open street, followed directly by public transport and parks.

The investigations into the death of a 34-year-old Cameroonian in April 2019 on the premises of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) have led to the result that the measures initiated were justified by self-defense and emergency aid.

As a consequence the accusation of bodily harm resulting in death against a doctor and three security guards has been dropped by the public prosecutor.

The Cameroonian died after being restrained to take medication. According to the prosecutor's office, the cause of death has been a previous heart disease.

In 2019 a YouTube video had surfaced in which a violent attack by security forces on asylum seekers could be seen. It had been filmed at the Central Contact Point for refugees in Saxony-Anhalt and the public prosecutor has now charged the security forces with bodily harm.

The video showed that security forces first separated two quarreling refugees, but then kicked them lying on the floor.

The proceedings will be conducted before the Halberstadt District Court.

The head of corporate security at the Munich Transport Company (MVG) commented in an interview with "Die Zeit" about mouth and nose covering and passenger acceptance. Around 90% of these would adhere to the regulations and the MVG would have achieved the desired effect. The effort to achieve 100% acceptance would be too high, especially with possible limited success.

He sees the imposition of fines and fines critically and as a state task.
