INFORMATION IN THIS REPORT IS AND DO NOT RELEASE OUTSIDE OF AUTHORIZED AND RECIPIENTS arrested. Alternatiyely, we could request Lee County LE speak to other counties about tactics that are working in Lee County such as threatening to tow all yehicles andf'or increasing bail for protestor directions to $2,000. Ifthe lock down tactics of Mississippi Stand and the BAT tactics of Bold Iowa were to join forces, it would seyerely impact our mission Next 24 Hours a. Protestors do not haye a scheduled eyent for the next 24 hours. Howeyer, Mississippi Stand may attempt a direct action tonight 15 lOct or early tomorrow morning 16 Oct. C. Illinois i. Intel Update a. A search of social media sites reyealed nothing of new intelligence yalue related directly to the project in Illinois. b. Th ere was not enough localized support to hold any protest actiyity in the Carlinyille, ILarea. ii. Past 24 Hours a. Went to the Carlinyille, IL, no protest actiyity was obseryed as earlier discussed on a social media site. The Hancock County Sheriff?s request is being addressed by ETP management. Leighton Security, will be procuring a for use around the Kaskaskia HDD locations for access to remote trails that access the location. Next 24 Hours a. Monitoring news sources and social media sites for protest related eyents and actiyity will be conducted daily. D. South Dakota i. Intel Update a. The schedule for Pheasant shooting hours are noon to sunset for the ?rst week, and 10:00am to sunset thereafter. Signi?cant because this proyid es 5 hours of daylight before each day?s hunt begin s--allowing the roying patrols freedom of man euyer for a longer period than expected. Safety briefs haye continued with the Silyerton Security Element so as to mitigate the associated risks. b. Positiye interaction with the Silyerton Guard Force after they haye been in sector for a number of days. Local patterns haye been obseryed and are starting to be understood as ?normal actiyities? which makes it significantly easier to identify abnormal actiyities. The main hindrance is the presence of hunters who don?t fit either bill. ii. Past 24 Hours a. Trayel from the new Hotels to the Spreads is enhanced from the new hotel locations. The close proximity of the hotels allowed Roying Patrols more time in sector and therefore better coyerage of the facilities. TigerSwan Prepared for Energy Transfer Partners 4
