Mission

The Criminal Investigations and Network Analysis (CINA) Center is part of the prestigious network of DHS Centers of Excellence and is funded by the DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s Office of University Programs to bring together leading experts and researchers to pursue multidisciplinary approaches to address the disruption of criminal activities across the physical and cyber spaces. This Mason-led consortium will be advancing science while pursuing the development of cutting edge solutions and innovative educational and training activities to support today’s and tomorrow’s workforce.

Money Laundering

Today, sophisticated criminal activities cross physical and cyber borders in their pursuit of illicit profit, devastating communities around the world, and wreaking havoc on societies and the environment. Such activities may take the form of:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Money laundering
  • Human trafficking
  • Organ and tissue trafficking
  • Environmental crimes
  • Smuggling of goods and counterfeits
  • Illicit trading

In order to support the disruption of such activities, the CINA Center will establish an ecosystem of innovation in research, training and education. Led by George Mason University, CINA will build on a foundation of multidisciplinary research across a number of Mason’s Colleges:
