Understanding El Salvador's state response to serious and organised crime 

Janes vast database captures events from all over the world on a number of themes and topics, including non-state actions, state actions, and bribery and corruption. With multiple fields of metadata, along with Janes solutions across military capabilities and equipment, enables you to better understand the strategic and operational environments of a country's military response to crime.

The case study that follows demonstrates how Janes connected data can be quickly brought together to gain an insight into El Salvador's response to serious and organised crime in the region. 

Reporting and analysis into a chosen region 

In depth country reporting provides a detailed view of El Salvador, including details of serious and organised crime, social unrest and military conflict. 

 

Structured database of events linked to your area of focus

Janes vast database captures serious and organised crime events from all over the world. Metadata into each event is also available including the source and classification.

 

Using Janes mapping tool allows you to view crime events in a geospatial format. State actions can also be added for a more holistic view combining non-state actions with government response activities. 

 

Understanding the relevant military bases

By adding base layers to the map allows you to build an understanding of the military capability in the areas that have been impacted by the crime events. Here we see that the special forces and special terrorism command units are based at the Ilopango International Airport, near the capital where there has been a high concentration of events.
