(U) Analysis:
Current civil unrest associated with the incident in Ferguson, MO, presents the potential for civil disobedience
directed toward identifiable law enforcement personnel, marked law enforcement equipment and government
facilities associated with law enforcement during the identified protest times and dates.

FPS personnel are reminded the Department of Homeland Security does not consider non-violent civil
disobedience tactics to constitute criminal activities. Absent a specific actionable threat, you should refer to the
list of suspicious activity indicators in identifying and mitigating threats. Some of these behavioral indicators
may be constitutionally protected activities and should be supported by additional facts to justify increased
suspicion. No single behavioral indicator, alone should be the basis for law enforcement action. The totality of
behavioral indicators and other relevant circumstances should be evaluated when considering any law
enforcement response or action.

For FPS’s purpose criminal predicate is established when information exists that establishes sufficient facts to
give a trained law enforcement officer, investigator, or employee a basis to believe there is a reasonable
possibility an individual or organization is involved in a definable criminal activity or enterprise. A reasonable
law enforcement purpose means the information collection process is intended to address unlawful conduct—
either past, present, or future—or to address facility security and safety issues, whether these issues amount to
criminal conduct or not.

The dates and times of these locations are being provided to raise awareness that these events may impact
federal facilities within close proximity to these locations. In addition, to assist in any peroration/response
Regional Leadership deems appropriate.
