We crowdsource open source intelligence through both the Trace Labs OSINT Search Party CTFs and Ongoing Operations with our global community. Our highly skilled intelligence analysts then triage the data collected to produce actionable intelligence reports on each missing persons subject. These intelligence reports allow the law enforcement agencies that we work with the ability to quickly see any new details required to reopen a cold case and/or take immediate action on a missing subject.
In order to continually improve our results, Trace Labs has partnered with some of the industry’s top OSINT experts to provide training for our community. Our community then gets to test these skills on real scenario's in our OSINT Search Party CTF.
Trace Labs is proudly raising awareness of the missing persons issue at a global level. We are doing this in partnership with law enforcement agencies around the world and in support of other non profit organizations.
Rules of Engagement
At Trace Labs, we do not perform active collection of intelligence in any of our investigations. We do not theorize, speculate or actively get involved by going after bad guys. We only do OSINT to assist law enforcement agencies with their missing persons subjects. This means we passively collect the data that is generated by a subject for the sole purposes of providing this intelligence to the law enforcement agencies that we partner with to assist them so that they can pursue the appropriate course of action.
