Tomorrow morning the House Homeland Security Committee, Subcommittee on Intelligence, Information Sharing, and Terrorism Risk Assessment will hold a hearing on The Future of Fusion Centers: Potential Promise and Dangers.
Those testifying have been asked to focus their comments on two documents:
DHS Inspector General’s December 2008 report: DHS’ Role in State and Local Fusion Centers is Evolving.
DHS and DOJ policy paper: Baseline Capabilities for State and Major Urban Area Fusion Centers.
Significant attention will also be given to privacy concerns related to Fusion Centers. The ACLU offers a related report and more: What’s Wrong with Fusion Centers.
