    Default SNA, however, remains just an answer, not the answer

    A short article which ends:
    Like every analytic technique, SNA has great utility for the right question. Within its limits, SNA is unmatched and can be usefully applied to identify key individuals or organizations within a network, generate new leads and simulate the flows of information or money throughout a network. SNA, however, remains just an answer, not the answer. Used inappropriately or without a full understanding of the limits of the method and analysts will only be finding new and more technically sophisticated ways to fail. That, then, is the primary job of the modern day analyst: making the judgment call of which techniques to use and when. Equally as important as knowing when to use SNA is knowing when not to use it.

    Default Social network analysis of an urban street gang using police intelligence data

    A new UK Home Office publication 'Social network analysis of an urban street gang using police intelligence data' (33 pgs):
    This report uses intelligence data from Greater Manchester Police to systematically understand local gangs, helping target police activities. The method identifies interrelations in gang-related, criminal, and drugs-related networks within the data, and demonstrates the importance of understanding the strong role of other social links within a network.
    The report is accompanied by a practical ‘How to guide’ (14 pgs) for police forces considering using this approach.

    GMP have had a big problem with gang-related firearms incidents, including the murder if two lady police officers; after a lull the problems have returned according to recent reports:http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...ester-35250617

    From City Journal (NYC based IIRC):
    Networks of Evil: Transnational criminal cartels, still poorly understood, are undermining order around the world. Here’s how they can be disrupted.

    Caveat: one author is from a software plc offering their systems.
