DHS/ALL/PIA-011 State, Local, and Regional Fusion Center Initiative

Pursuant to Section 511 of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (the “9/11 Commission Act” or “the Act”), Public Law No. 110-53, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Privacy Office is conducting a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) on the Homeland Security State, Local, and Regional Fusion Center Initiative (the Initiative). Under the Initiative, DHS will facilitate appropriate, bi-directional information sharing between the Department and State, Local, and Regional Fusion Centers. In addition, the Department will assign trained intelligence analysts to fusion centers, provided those centers meet a number of criteria set forth in the text. The Act requires the Department to complete a concept of operations (CONOPS) for the Initiative, including a PIA. The CONOPS also includes a Civil Liberties Impact Assessment, conducted by the DHS Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. December 2008
