PRO AREA CONTROL
(From a despatch written aboard the Apollo on 13 November 1969 to the captain of the Diana, stationed in a UK port at the time.)
We’ve just handled a UK “reporter” flap here who came in rumoring we were wanted by Interpol. So we documented that he had said it and documented (from Interpol) it was not true. A “dead agent” in an old Chinese text is one who gives false reports to the enemy and they shoot him! So we got security police in fast, documented the false report as false and the “reporter” is being hunted by security police and border guards! Now any new agent will run into that in the local dossier and when he tries, he’ll get it!
PRO Area Control is another development. By personal contact and other means you build up your area with important people and official contacts to a point where you are so well thought of that any third partying is laughed at. You then have PRO Area Control IN.

(Written in 1974.)
It would be wise at once to condemn terrorism on any channel, primarily public media as Emergency Laws could possibly effect us.
It is a failure of psychiatry to back up the police system. While apparently political, terrorist acts are in reality committed by persons who are insane. Those who commit such actions have been more than once in the hands of the prison officials but remained undetected by prison psychiatrists and were loosed upon the public again. I once spent a week tracing such actions and found that they were being committed by persons of unsound mind who had recently been released from institutions by psychiatrists.
The psychiatrist has no means of detecting such people and only pretends that he does.
Political terrorists could not exist if they did not have insane persons available.
The only way to stop such actions is remove psychiatry from its false position and permit those who are capable to assist public safety.

POLICE, AGENCY SUITS
(Originally written on 12 September 1973, concerning suits which were filed against police and government agencies in Germany, in order to handle their spreading of false reports.)
1. Essentially this is a PR action and if made so it will also win. People hate police and are willing to believe almost anything bad about them. Therefore:
a. You must not depend wholly on your already overloaded PR personnel. You must retain small PR firms to flank these suits in important places. A deal for special news and campaign handling of the local suit could be made. Retention should be a Church campaigning for the rights of the individual with a hot case to back it up, not dissemination of Scientology or its protection. This action must be at once programmed with targets so that these firms are actually retained.
b. The basic public issue here is whether or not police can invent dossiers against individuals or groups and circulate them amongst themselves and to judges so that the human rights of the person or group are covertly destroyed. This is general modern police practice and even includes leaking these false reports to press as factual and inciting the media. This is a violation of the common law principle that a person must be faced by his accusers and that accusations must be known to him. This strikes at the integrity of a known corrupt police system.
c. Frighten them into hysteria so they begin to make mistakes, become violent or even more oppressive or collapse. This is a marvelous PR condition around which very effective campaigns can be built, a PR man’s dream. Hear this as a campaign: An ad in a paper, repeating, placed by our legal and so signed, which requests that anyone who has ever had a false police charge placed against him or who has reason to believe the police have or are using a false record to ruin his life should communicate with the attorneys. That gives you some idea of the PR potential.
d. The police love to try people in the press and erode public opinion against them so that when the police strike the way is all prepared so that they can say they are after criminals. In this way and by false stats of crime and other means they build up their status and numbers and cover up the fact that they are themselves engaging in acts contrary to public safety. They are therefore peculiarly sensitive to any motivator in this area. It remains that police must be tried by us in the press on and on and on.
e. Police are employed by self interest groups to get rid of their rivals. We have this in the National Association of Mental Health (NAMH). All one has to do is discover a friendship between NAMH and the police in any area (and these connections abound) to prove that self interest groups get rid of rivals by using false reports in the police.
f. This must be built up PR-wise to a very broad public issue that affects every man, woman and child in a country and causes a very great deal of civil protest forcing the resignations of anyone who has been connected with such activities. The Germans are good at making people resign.
g. German press laws are very loose and cases can be tried in the press without being sub judice.
h. It is a stroke of luck that GERMAN, which to the world means NAZI, police are at the bottom of this. This extends to every other police force or agency named in the suit anywhere so they all become Fascists by association.
i. PR should work hard to pull in any other group under attack or otherwise into this, “What police false reports are causing YOUR trouble?” is the motif. The demand is that police violently reform and quit doing this. Thetans will agree on stopping something. They will agree as groups in stopping the police. If this is backed up hard enough with enough groups there will not only be resignations but new laws passed to restrain this secret and insane practice of inventing dossiers to CAUSE public unrest rather than forward public safety.
j. Police are a prime target in all revolts. It can be made plain to politicians that corrupt police are a threat to their regime and that public unrest can become so bad that they could be swept away. In any political circle today there is an abiding fear of the masses, of revolt. Almost any politician thinks about this today. If it is pointed out that their regime is being undermined by corrupt and illegal police practices they will call for resignations and pass laws. Thus there is a heavy lobby function to be undertaken and this must be provided for in all programming of PR.
k. The danger of secret reports being circulated within a country is bad enough but look at the international scene. OVER 900 young Americans are in European prisons, put there because the FBI tipped off the foreign police to frame them or grab them. You will find in every case that an FBI finger was put on every one of these people and they do not even know it. In other words, they shoot their people overseas. And so does every other police force; and so does every other police force use false reports.
l. The police have a kingdom of their own known as Interpol. It has no court above it. It deals in torrents of false reports. It has its own radios around the world. It actually has no legal propriety whatever as it is under no sovereign, only under police forces. It has constituted itself a sovereign power. It manipulates events in the world by issuing false reports. It is the new Fascist regime. It should be disbanded and eradicated as a cancer hidden in and unknown to Mankind. Through it, police could take over the world and undoubtedly sometimes dream of it. The head of Interpol is an absolute dictator, a Hitler governed by no superior court. Anyone with that much power and that propensity for issuing false information would have no trouble whatever in constituting himself a world dictator. Any self interest group can use that power.
m. We must emphasize that the inefficiency of the police makes them resort to falsifying records to maintain their own status and that falsifying records knowingly is their way of life. They use these to incite judges to issue wiretaps and to begin incursions on innocent people with whom they want to get even. The point is that they use a DOSSIER system today that is antipathetic to all civil rights and that they falsify records and abuse their power.
2. You have of course winning suits as a purpose here. I do not. I expect that as an incidental. My purpose here can be very clearly stated. This world cannot be sane so long as it has a Third Dynamic and Fourth Dynamic insanity called falsely reporting corrupt police running amok in it. All civilizations go criminal via their police. My purpose is to eradicate the power and authority of Fascist police everywhere before they are used to totally enslave this planet. My purpose and mission in this is to bring sanity to this planet. It cannot exist so long as self interest groups have ready to hand corrupt and unprincipled police forces and agencies. Thus they must be reformed and rapidly while there is still enough breathing space to do the job, not after some new Hitler has come to power.
THEREFORE THE COURSE OF THESE POLICE AND AGENCY SUITS MUST HEAVILY CONTAIN PR IN ITS HIGHEST PROFESSIONAL AND EXPERT FORM IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH OUR OWN MISSION ON THIS PLANET.
Our legal and any legal authority issued must keep in mind that we are not just suing police. We are making a saner planet.

INTELLIGENCE ESTIMATIONS AND PREDICTIONS
(Originally written by LRH on 22 August 1973.)
When an agent or operative turns in summaries or documents, these are poured into the main intelligence files and any “special bank” that is of current interest. These main files or “special banks” can be made to operate like computers without the bother of electronic liabilities.
Modified only by errors of concentrated attention where none should be going or omissions of areas that should be under collection, these files or “special banks” will divulge new data.
Here is where we leave the subject of intelligence reports (See HCO PL 25 April 1968, INTELLIGENCE ACTIONS) and enter the field of ESTIMATION AND PREDICTION.
A main file is where everything is filed. A “special bank” is a separate file where data is ADDITIONALLY AND ALSO filed relating to an exact subject.
When filing and cross-indexing is kept up to date (and it always must be) it is now possible to begin the work of ESTIMATION.
This is done by examining the main files and locating the fattest folders related to any one group or subject. Let us say one is just now interested in dog catchers. The cross-file index, if properly prepared, will show that several dog catchers are in the main files. One simply pulls their files from the main file, leaving a dummy to catch new filings and to show where the main file is, and makes a “special bank.” This is now the Dog Catcher Special Bank.
Now if you look at the above paragraph again you will see that SOMEONE had to say that “we are now interested in dog catchers.” This in essence is an ESTIMATION in a crude form. One noticed by general observation that there simply seemed to be a lot about dog catchers lately getting into the main file. So the head of the section being alert decides that there might be something growling in that area. So he rapidly makes up a “special bank” of all files that seem to be concerned to some degree with dog catching.
Noticing that we should be looking at these dog catchers is what could be called “flair.” It’s a “Hey, looking this over we seem to have a lot of dog catchers lately, so I better get some data on them and make an estimation.”
No file or computer can actually THINK. It can however be so arranged that QUANTITY begins to show up around certain names and that a casual examination of those names shows they seem to have dog catching in common. So an Estimator, working the files routinely, having noticed this, would make a “special bank.”
The “special bank” is not very elaborate. It can be as crude as simply spreading out the folders on a desk and looking them over FOR THINGS THEY HAVE IN COMMON OR NAMES IN COMMON TO THEM.
It can be as elaborate as making a new card index for every name in those files and what file they came out of; then filing these cards in alphabetical order. As one has taken EVERY name out of each file in turn and put each on a separate card, it is obvious that when one then puts them in alphabetical order, the names in common to two or more files will occur as two or more cards.
If agents are trained to collect all names and connections of names on every investigation and if these names are supplemented by adding in directories, and if filing has been kept up so that a file exists for every name, when you choose files for a special bank they will be the fattest on that subject. And when you work the special bank over again, you will get the precise common denominators of people that run through several files.
You can now say, “Get me more data on Mr. Plow, Mr. Row, Mr. Bow and Mrs. Snap” and when that data comes in (and is added to main files but especially to this “special bank”) you will suddenly find yourself expanding ABOVE the level that your special bank was at before. In other words, you have found new horizons. You will find if you do this that Mr. Plow and Mr. Row are just goofballs or dogmeat sellers, that Mr. Bow died last year and that Mrs. Snap is all you have left. So we look up Mrs. Snap even further, “Hey, go look over Mrs. Snap again” and we suddenly find she was receiving money for a fund called “Kennel Support” but was actually the head of a dog catcher ring.
We can now PREDICT.
If we are out to handle the dog catchers we will have to work on Mrs. Snap to get her to reform.
We can write up a program like this:
PREDICTION: DOGS WILL CONTINUE TO DISAPPEAR.
“The situation is that dogs are getting caught.” “The WHO is Mrs. Snap.” “The following program based on best advices should be carried out:
“1. Confront Mrs. Snap and get her attitude……… etc.”
One needn’t elaborate for it is obvious that many ways exist to legally and ethically persuade Mrs. Snap to give up her career of crime.
The tools one is using consist of looking for people or groups that are themselves outpoints. This is about all the relationship this has to the Data Series. The police use a crude version of filing which does not bear much resemblance to this. They have a RECORD of someone and they just keep adding to it and adding to it, putting in false reports, opinions, anything. If someone is “after” that person for some reason or another, they pull out the file and use it. This is a “dossier system” in such vogue with the Czar’s Cheka and copied ever since and even put into computers.
There is no excuse for a “dossier system” as it has a suppressive action on everyone: the files one by one are used as a sort of punishment system. It exists to catch individuals without relation to general situations. Thus police continually find themselves up against increasing crime since they do not handle broad situations relating to crime. The reason this is apparent is that if they did use a different approach they would have found a long while ago that their violent crime was occurring amongst people recently in mental institutions or prisons and it would have led them to condemn the ineffectualness of the psychiatrist, psychologist and look for other means. An exception is where an intelligence action is undertaken by police to combat organized crime or groups but here again they do not achieve reduction (as witnessed by statistics) as their system never leads them outside the group being investigated. They consume countless hours of “law enforcement” policeman and judge time which could be saved if they adopted a more streamlined system which, amongst other things, weeded out false reports or vexatious complaints with no foundation in fact.
The only point here is that filing systems DO exist other than the one being described and that the effectiveness of a filing system is rewarded by saving time and energy and the achievement of its actual purpose of situation predicting and handling. One can vary this system of intelligence filing and making “special banks” in a number of ways. One can shortcut everything in it but the actual making of the main files and the actual pulling of “special banks” and studying them.
One can keep a main system of individuals flanked by a cross-index system of groups which shows how many individuals in the main bank fit into each specific group.
One can keep a main file of groups and flank it by “special banks” of individuals who are common to one another or to groups.
The whole point is that ALL data by name and separately by group must get into the main files.
The action of estimation is helped by a system that shows some GROUP getting fat with names.
The action of prediction is always done by forming a “special bank” for study and sorting out.
The action of programming comes from any data in the individual or the group file.
The material is from newspaper accounts, literature issued, corporation filings, from almost innumerable types of sources.
Knowledge of the Data Series outpoints prevents one from buying false reports in the files and careful cross-filing eliminates the innocent bystander; these two things can defeat any intelligence system: accepting false data and hitting innocent bystanders; this is the fault of nearly every system in existence.
Intelligence filing done well, estimated well, furnishes predictions which can be programmed and situations can be handled that would otherwise drop on one from an apparently clear sky.

(Originally written by LRH on 30 August 1973, concerning a suit against the German police for spreading false reports.)
I have no need to stress that this is a terribly important case. Underneath the surface for two decades police and Interpol have been used to spread false and damaging data to the press and governments. This line has been the cause of enormous losses and much labor.
We now have the opportunity to reverse the entire trend of events to such a degree that this could be the last battle of the war.
The strategy I advised had apparently worked: we can now sue the magazine independently, mop up the ground with them and then use them to attack the police in Germany.
The real target is Interpol.
The mechanism of subpoenaing papers, witnesses and depositions can now begin. If this is correctly conducted it will go like an ethics investigation of pulling strings. The suit then has two objectives, 1) to win an actual cash settlement and 2) to run to earth every contrary criminal conspiracy that has been at work for more than two decades.
If you did not go in for “damage to reputation” and used some other charge like placing in fear and jeopardy by falsifying records and publicizing false records as I advised your own defense will be minimal and your attack line maximal. I hope my “Suit Caution” arrived in time and was heeded.
Cleverly fought, evidence for a hundred suits in a dozen countries can be gathered in this German police suit. This is the lever that moves the world. Every enemy can be made to stand and deliver.
Any suit you now start can of course be cross-played in what you find about this German suit. Evidence in one area can be used in another and so forth.
Anyone handling this should be familiar with investigatory tech where you pull a string that leads to another string on and on until you find a General Sherman tank. Unless you sued on damage to repute, your opportunity for PR is endless. And so is your string pulling. Done correctly, the head of the German justice system will resign, the Home Secretary and head of Scotland Yard will also, the FBI and Justice and Treasury principals may very well pack up and Interpol will either fold or drastically reform. All these and other actions lie directly in your power. Ethics is going in on governments, look at Watergate. You are in the trend of the times and should make the most of it.
The enemy has made a colossal blunder, one of the kind that attorneys pray for. Not only were false reports being made but also illegally publicized. This is the sort of case that comes once in a lifetime.
Only some equally large technical blunder on our parts could lose it. Thus legal tech must be impeccable, no errors, no faults.
The sources of all their reports can be depositioned in addition to the records.
And when depositioned, if one can get names of where THEY got it, that can be set up for new deposition. And every deposition becomes bait for a perjury charge or damages and every evidence gained in A can be used in B. You will be able to run these attacks down to the “seventh generation” back.
Subpoena the record. “Where did you get these parts F, K, P and L?” By legal means pull F, K, P and L into it. “Where did you get that data?” And F, K, P and L give you G, R and J. “Where did you get that data?”
This will work because every one of these poor sods will plead they were innocent by quoting the “authority” from which they got their data. You get the “authority” in each case and lay grounds for new suits. It didn’t make anyone innocent, the data is false, so they are guilty. But each one will use that plea. So use the plea to get someone else onto the hot seat.
There will be an effort to prove their good faith by claiming that something dimly that way (like the charge) was true. You use this to prove the charge they did publish was false; I am sure they will not be able to resist this temptation, to claim only slight error; but the moment they claim ANY error they have pleaded guilty to issuing a false charge.
I trust you were able to sue for a billion. This in itself is PR, but factually these charges have caused far more loss than that over the decades.
You are not going to settle for less. You want this case to continue as long as you can bleed it for more cases. Ultimately you will be forced to accept a victory and payoff; by that time you will have the material for more and more cases, each one proven won by the fact that the last one before it won.
Your real target is Interpol. They are the pipeline. They have violated their charter. You can demand its cancellation as a conspiracy against all honest citizens. You will find that people will spook when it is asserted that THEY are on Interpol records with false charges too. Public opinion against secret police and violent police is being heeded: the “no-knock raiders” who were marshals breaking into US homes at first were just shrugged off by the Justice Department: this suddenly changed and a dozen of these marshalls have now been indicted. Governments are afraid of public reaction, they believe what they read in the press; you must make successful press out of this. Try them in the press. That’s why you must have PR firms.
Interpol offices have been releasing material unbeknownst to us all over the world. Who got them to do it? And who got THEM to do it?
You will be pulling the German Interpol office into this almost at once. This office as itself, not as Interpol, can be sued elsewhere. And main Interpol can be sued and its offices in any country.
You are not pressed for funds. They are at your disposal from any funds. Further, you can get subscriptions from members all over the world when you tell them this was what made it hard on all of us and that it is being remedied.
Various media will get pulled into it. ITV was there somewhere on that info handout line which undid any good we did. Their interviewers were sitting sniggering believing themselves safely holding true police reports. Cleverness will count in finding someone admitting they gave out these reports. And there goes ITV. And BBC. You see how the media chain can go.
That is why I was working on the central idea. It is best to estimate which way it went. Well you know of one direction per files and we are getting another. Scandal will be pulled into this to make press like 6 1/2 million dead Jews. The story will be that they were afraid of us because we knew who really did it and they have fought like trapped rats to prevent their exposure.
So out of this beginning you are going to complete the already begun reversal of the trend of the last few years. You are on the upswing already. This is going to send you zooming. This is going to turn it from a sneering “those” to “YES sir” to a member of the group.
It is axiomatic that he who tames a lion is now the lion tamer. Primitive man, which is to say modern man, turns to the victors.
So this one we win. No matter what skill, exactitude, cleverness or boldness that is required, whatever funds are needed, this one we win. For if we win it in all its main battles and outflung skirmishes, we will have won the world, certainly for our field. We have never had any real opponents technically or ethically. Now we will have a long hard-fought battle and we will have no opponents at all.

(Originally written on 23 August 1973, concerning the legal actions taken against government and police agencies to handle the origination and dissemination of false reports by these agencies.)
The exact charge must be presented in writs.
Attorneys often like to add in automatically “defamation of character and damage therefore.” If you let this into suits the governments will use it as an opportunity to try the plaintiff (precedent is our World Federation of Mental Health defense in England where we made them prove, which they could not, that they had any character to defame). If this is entered in writs, particularly in US, then the government can rake over any old imagined scandal and even though these can be handled, they would make bad press. This would extend the issue and cost as well.
The clear cut charge is simply issuing false reports and using these to instigate the destruction of an individual and Church by illegal means resulting in placing people in fear and damaging their lives.
This can be prosecuted by the plaintiff in a clear cut fashion and all efforts of the police attorneys to put the case over into “they didn’t have any character and should have been shot” will be ruled extraneous. Keeping it on a civil rights, ethical police, no end justifies such means will become then something a judge can find them guilty of and on which he can award damages.
Further, that Interpol was falsely attacking a Church contrary to its charter becomes evident only if the reports are shown to be false.
Further, when the charge in a writ is made that way, ANY effort of the police attorney will prove the charge as they CONTINUE to falsely attack even in the court.
All they have to be steered into is to admit that “yes, it wasn’t worded right, the actual facts are slightly different but they are still bad people” and you have won your case as they have admitted the charges and record were false. Thus strategy would be to lead them to say it was different than the police said and promptly file for an award in our favor.
In other words, the moment you also charge with libel, slander, defamation, you make the police attorneys capable of jeopardizing your win for they will then call up all sorts of odd ball witnesses and psychiatrists and “damaged” people to try you instead of them and could influence the judge, even if we proved them wrong, into finding “for the public protection” and ruling that it was okay for police to lie.
Thus, quickly inspect any already issued writs and review any planning and BE VERY CAREFUL OF THIS POINT IN THE FUTURE.
It is possible our attorneys have already handled this. But you cannot count upon that.
KEEP THE DOOR CLOSED TO ANY AVENUE WHICH SEEKS TO LET THE GOVERNMENT ATTORNEYS JUSTIFY THEIR MEANS. USE ANY EQUIVOCATION ON THE PART OF THE POLICE TO PROVE THAT THEY LIED AND ARE STILL LYING.
In that way only, these suits are a piece of religion. Given technical legal accuracy (a case can be lost by some minor technical point such as misfiling) you have an ironbound case that would be very hard to lose.
Oh, yes: All the police have to say is “that we trusted our brothers in blue overseas” and you have also won at once.
On YOUR side you can reinforce your case if you get busy enough by finding others who have been falsely reported on such as people falsely arrested by the same police. These are easy to locate, just by court records. You don’t want a Class Suit, all you want is to show that the police are thoroughgoing bad hats without any restraint or honesty and precipitate for them wholesale political questioning, enquiries into them, resignations of their chiefs, etc. Make THIS sort of thing make the headlines.
You REALLY NEED A PRO man alongside of each of these suits, not just an attorney. You can retain PRO firms. You should do so to handle press and guide it to an overhaul of police.
As to Interpol, do NOT forget this point: They are a Kingdom of the Cops, a law unto themselves. Their actions are never overseen as there is no court or government above them. Examining them reveals a complete Fascism from which there is no appeal. They should be hit along these lines and revealed as a Fascist state all by their little selves that is mauling the planet. They were born as an independent kingdom of the cops and have been just that ever since. They are secret, they know no boundaries. They seek to build up their necessity but they violate the sovereign duties of every government and the sovereignty of every citizen. And they have NOT reduced crime, it has INCREASED since they came into existence. They must be portrayed as a force without check which has proven completely unsuccessful in preventing international crime. They never made the slightest dent in plane hijacking.
All any future ruler of the world would have to do is to take over Interpol and he would have it made at once. There are more arguments for charter abolition than merely their religion violation. They are an affront to all decent men and the good they do does not begin to outweigh the sorrow and anguish they cause. They are a Hitlerian secret police system of which the public is unaware and should be abolished for the good of Man.
Remember these points. They are important.
And it’s an order to get a PRO person or wog firm to parallel each of these suits with the objective of bringing about a political reform, defense of individual liberty and securing individual privacy with freedom from corrupt or dishonest police.
