Deployed Intelligence Officers and Protective Security Advisors

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) deploys Intelligence Officers and Protective Security Advisors to support state, local, tribal, territorial, and private sector partners in advancing the homeland security mission. Intelligence officers are embedded in recognized state and major urban area fusion centers to advance the sharing of threat related information among federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, and private sector partners. Protective security advisors engage these partners as regional critical infrastructure security and resilience specialists, providing local perspective to—and supporting the development of—the national risk picture by identifying, assessing, monitoring, and minimizing risk to critical infrastructure at the regional, state, and local levels. Their distinct yet complementary roles enable intelligence officers and protective security advisors to jointly support DHS partners in ensuring the safety and security of our nation.

State and major urban area fusion centers (fusion centers) serve as focal points within the state and local environment for the receipt, analysis, gathering, and sharing of threat-related information between the federal government and state, local, tribal, territorial (SLTT) and private sector partners.
