Signal, Sygnet, and Sigil - Parallel Police Force
This is an older report, but I found it extremely interesting. I discovered it accidentally while researching Parallel Intelligence efforts in AI (Artificial Intelligence ) R&D projects.
Italy probes 'parallel police'
Italian police have launched a big inquiry into a "parallel" intelligence agency, say Italian news reports.
The Department of Anti-terrorism Strategic Studies (DSSA) was reportedly created after the 2004 Madrid bombings to combat Islamic extremism.
Genoa-based investigators carrying out a probe into the DSSA have arrested two people and placed more than two dozen others under investigation.
Anti-terror squads have also carried out raids in nine Italian regions.
