MESSAGE TITLE: Public Awareness
MESSAGE TYPE: Information Sharing
INCIDENT TYPE: Innocuous Wi-Fi Advertisement in Forbes magazine that May Appear to Look Suspicious
INCIDENT DATE/TIME: 26 April 2013
SUMMARY: Forbes magazine has recently published and mailed out a special issue which advertises a new Wi-Fi “hot spot” mechanism. It contains a Wi-Fi access point glued into the magazine, with a battery operated power source, including wires attached. While the advertisement is completely innocuous, the physical appearance may appear to look like an explosive device. New Jersey has seen an increase in suspicious activity reporting since the Boston marathon attacks, particularly incidents of suspicious packages and bomb threats. Due to the public’s increased awareness, this advertisement may appear suspicious, and may cause undue alarm. Therefore, the NJ ROIC is sending a Situational Awareness to our law enforcement and private sector security partners.
POINT OF CONTACT: Any suspicious activity with a possible nexus to terrorism in New Jersey should be reported immediately following existing protocols specific to respective counties. Activity can also be reported by dialing 2-1-1 or (866) 4SAFENJ (866-472-3365), or by e-mailing [email protected].
