Via DARPA.mil :

 DARPA’s mission is to maintain the technological superiority of the U.S.
military and prevent technological surprise from harming our national
security by sponsoring revolutionary, high-payoff research bridging the gap
between fundamental discoveries and their military use.
Over the years, DARPA has worked to enhance our national security by
funding research and technology development that not only have improved our
military capabilities but have changed the way we live. Since the very
beginning, DARPA has been the place for people with innovative ideas that
lead to groundbreaking discoveries.

Their mission does not extend to intelligence gathering, police keeping, or
any form of ... kinetic warfare.

That's not what DARPA does.
