National Fusion Center Association

It’s been reported that these guys are active at Wall Street. Even if they aren’t at Wall Street, everyone should know them. They think you are a terrorist.

PROVIDING A VOICE FOR THE NATIONAL FUSION CENTER NETWORK: 

“These centers analyze information and identify trends to share timely
intelligence with federal, state, and local law enforcement including
DHS, which then further shares this information with other members of
the Intelligence Community. In turn, DHS provides relevant and
appropriate threat information from the Intelligence Community back to
the fusion centers. Today, there are 72 state- and locally-run fusion
centers in operation across the nation, up from a handful in 2006. Our
goal is to make every one of these fusion centers a center of analytic
excellence that provides useful, actionable information about threats to
law enforcement and first responders.”



The Mission:

To represent the interests of state and major urban area fusion centers,
as well as associated interests of states, tribal nations, and units of
local government, in order to promote the development and
sustainment of fusion centers to enhance public safety; encourage
effective, efficient, ethical, lawful, and professional intelligence and
information sharing; and prevent and reduce the harmful effects of
crime and terrorism on victims, individuals, and communities.

 

The Purpose:

The Association exists to: 

  • Provide an independent and consolidated voice for state and major urban area fusion centers; 
  • Maintain the focus of state, tribal, local, and federal governments on the needs of the fusion centers; 
  • Represent fusion center concerns to the federal government through an education process; 
  • Provide support for the development of effective fusion center policy for the nation’s state and local government elected officials and tribal leaders; 
  • Serve as a catalyst for the careful consideration and promotion of effective and efficient fusion center policies and practices; 
  • Advocate for the commitment of adequate resources to support a national, integrated network of state and major urban area fusion centers; and Coordinate between and among the different branches and levels of government and promote broad philosophical agreement.
