Homeland Security Begins with Hometown Security

“If you see something say something”.  If you see something suspicious taking place, report that behavior or activity to local law enforcement. Factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin or religious affiliation alone are not suspicious. For that reason, the public should report only suspicious behavior and situations (e.g., an unattended backpack in a public place or someone trying to break into a restricted area) rather than beliefs, thoughts, ideas, expressions, associations or speech unrelated to terrorism or other criminal activity. Only reports that indicate relevant criminal activity will be shared with Federal partners. Fusion Centers across the country are information sharing centers, jointly created and funded under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Office of Justice Programs in the U.S. Department of Justice. The center is designed to promote information sharing between agencies such as the CIA, FBI, U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. military, and state and local-level government. The Hawaii Fusion Center is also affiliated with our Hawaii Department of Defense and the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency’s (formerly State Civil Defense) and their Emergency Operations Center (EOC) that responds in the event of a disaster.

Fusion centers receive information from a variety of sources, including suspicious activity reporting (SAR) information from stakeholders within their jurisdictions, as well as federal information and intelligence. They analyze the information and develop relevant products to disseminate to their customers. These products assist homeland security partners at all levels of government to identify and address immediate and emerging threats.
