Intelligence Information Sharing
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) hosted an Intelligence Summit this week in partnership with the International Association of Chiefs of Police and other national law enforcement organizations to deepen partnerships and continue to adapt and improve information sharing as public safety and national security threats evolve.
Department of Homeland Security Fusion Center Engagement and Information Sharing Strategy for 2022–2026
The Department's Fusion Center Engagement and Information Sharing Strategy document outlines a multi-year commitment to supporting our law enforcement and homeland security partners in states and cities nationwide, and describes how DHS enables information sharing vital to fusion centers’ missions and our national security.
DHS recently launched a new mobile application—DHS Intel—designed to deliver and share timely intelligence information with law enforcement and first responders across the country. Today, many of us consume information from news feeds, blogs, social media, podcasts and a variety of other sources on our mobile phones; however, until last month, most intelligence information was either sent via e-mail distro lists or viewed on sites optimized for desktops and laptops. Now, this information is available on-the-go for state, local, territorial, tribal (SLTT), campus, and federal partners who rely on intelligence to keep the country safe.
The DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has a robust Liaison Officer (LNO) Program that assigns experienced intelligence professionals to represent the Chief Intelligence Officer (CINT) and serves in organizations across the DHS, the Intelligence Community (IC), and the Department of Defense (DoD). The LNOs support the CINT in his responsibility for developing an integrated Intelligence Enterprise across DHS, providing support ranging from subject matter expertise to coordination on both tactical and strategic level intelligence activities across the Homeland Security Enterprise.
As the threat landscape continues to evolve, NTER empowers our homeland security partners to adapt to new threats and prevent terrorism and targeted violence. NTER advances our partner’s ability to identify, investigate, assess, report and share tips and leads linked to emerging homeland security threats.
The 2020-2024 Strategic Plan articulates how the Office of Intelligence and Analysis will achieve our goals and mission objectives while continuing to meet the needs of the Department and other partners.
