One Step Closer to Fusion Center Transparency

An example of a recent fusion center public relations piece from a local news broadcast in Tennessee.

Public Intelligence

The recent ten-year anniversary of the September 11 attacks brought a deluge of news regarding the transformation of the United States in the wake of the most devastating terrorist attacks in the country’s history.  Many reports focused on debating the efficacy, or lack thereof, of policies implemented over the decade since the attacks occurred.  One set of particularly revealing reports from the Center for Investigative Journalism discussed suspicious activity reporting at the Mall of America and the transformation of Homeland Security following September 11.  Some publications discussed the waste inherent in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its various grant programs.  In addition to these critical evaluations of security policy, a number of public relations pieces from the national network of fusion centers appeared in local publications around the country. A local television station in Michigan covered the state’s local fusion center, having “unprecedented access” to walk around inside without cameras. Another piece from Tennessee discussed the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s fusion center, ending with appeals for viewers to report suspicious activity and “say something” if they “see something”. Articles from other states including Arkansas and Alabama, sometimes written by Homeland Security officials, emphasized the important work of their local fusion centers and the continued need for funding and support.

Back in February, this site published a complete list of the actual physical locations of fusion centers around the country.  We noted at the time that this was an historic action, providing a tremendous amount of transparency to an area of law enforcement that is shrouded in secrecy and of genuine interest to the general public.  Now, we have acquired another dataset that lists the complete names and contact information of the Department of Homeland Security Intelligence Officers deployed at various fusion centers around the country, as well as the Regional Directors of the fusion center network.  This provides yet another step forward in the public’s pursuit of openness and accountability for fusion centers’ domestic intelligence gathering and “threat integration” activities.  Most fusion centers have previously been thought to operate in an ad hoc manner, without standardized and nationally consistent privacy policies or operational guidelines.  According to a recent DHS presentation, as of 2010, only 5 fusion centers had approved privacy policies.  By the end of 2011, this number is expected to rise to 71.  The number of DHS personnel deployed to fusion centers will reportedly rise to 76.  The list of information we are providing includes the names and phone numbers of 62 DHS Intelligence Officers as well as the 6 Regional Directors of the various regions which comprise the national network of fusion centers.  The information is believed to be accurate as of December 2010.
