Information Sharing Initiatives

A critical component of safeguarding our communities and our country is the timely sharing of information among law enforcement and public safety entities.  IIR continues to be at the forefront, supporting the criminal justice community in its efforts to enhance information sharing efforts among all levels of government while ensuring that citizens’ privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties are protected. IIR is integrally involved in federal, state, and local agencies’ efforts to organize and support fusion center operations and suspicious activity reporting criteria and platforms.
