Intelligence Innovation in the Post 9-11 Era: A Case Study Analysis of a Regional Fusion Center

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Driven by the domestic terror attacks of September 11, 2001, fusion centers have changed the conceptual, structural and institutional face of U.S. law enforcement intelligence practices, and more generally policing strategies. The Department of Homeland Security estimates that there may be as many as 70 fusion centers operating in the United States, they form the backbone of our homeland security initiatives. And, despite their centrality to homeland security protocols, there is a lack of empirical understanding on these entities or the fusion process. Equally important, intelligence fusion is characterized as representing two paradigm shifts: one to intelligence-led policing and the other to nodal security.
Whereas pre 9-11 state governance practices relied on law enforcement to provide domestic security, there has been a shift to include non-law enforcement governmental agents and the private sector. The National Fusion Center Guidelines specifically called for inclusivity to combat terrorism and transnational organized crime, while also envisioning the 21st century role of law enforcement as “all threats, all crimes, all hazards” detection and protection. These conceptual issues will be explored through a case study analysis of a Mid-Atlantic Regional Fusion Center.
