Razing Expectations: Erecting a Strategic Vision for Fusion Centers

Razing Expectations coverRazing Expectations, a product of the IACP Committee on Homeland Security, outlines the view that across the nation, fusion centers should:

  • Act as principal intelligence enterprise nodes to network state and local law enforcement, homeland security, and public safety entities to each other and the federal government;
  • Harness and apply the collective knowledge of their constituents to address issues related to threat and risk; and
  • Assume the leading role in information sharing initiatives related to law enforcement, homeland security, and public safety issues.

Razing Expectations makes the recommendation to fusion centers nationwide to revisit their business models to ensure that they are aligned in a manner that will embrace collaboration and information sharing to meet the demands of both the present and future.
