    Oregon TITAN Fusion Center

    The Oregon TITAN Fusion Center’s (OTFC) mission is to protect Oregon citizens from terrorist and criminal activity by providing an all-crimes criminal information clearinghouse supported by multiple agencies and a Fusion Liaison Officer (FLO) program. OTFC provides criminal information products based on reasonable suspicion of terroristic and criminal indicators by collecting, gathering, analyzing and disseminating that information for the use of Oregon law enforcement, public safety, and public and private sector communities.

    The Oregon TITAN Fusion Center is a certified U.S. Department of Homeland Security-Oregon Governor designated local fusion center that adheres to the policies and procedures of federal, state, and local regulations. Anti-terrorism is the OTFC primary focus, though it will devote resources to crime intelligence analysis on a case-by-case basis.

    What is a Fusion Center?

    A fusion center is a collaborative effort of two or more agencies that provide resources, expertise, and information to the center with the goal of maximizing their ability to detect, prevent, investigate, and respond to criminal and terrorist activity. Intelligence processes – through which information is collected, integrated, evaluated, analyzed, and disseminated – are a primary focus.

    Data fusion involves the exchange of information from different sources – including law enforcement, public safety, health care and the private sector. Relevant and actionable intelligence results from analysis and data fusion. The fusion process helps agencies be proactive and protect communities.

    National Support for Fusion Centers

    In 2006, the President approved the establishment of a national integrated network of state and major urban area information fusion centers. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the FBI have begun deploying personnel to work within fusion centers.

    Fusion Center Guidelines

    The Fusion Center Guidelines were developed to ensure that fusion centers are established and operated consistently, resulting in enhanced coordination, strengthened partnerships, and improved crime-fighting and anti-terrorism capabilities.

    Role of Fusion Centers

    State and regional fusion centers enable local, state, and Tribal governments to gather, process, analyze, and share information and intelligence relating to all crimes and all hazards. Fusion centers communicate, cooperate, and coordinate with each other and with the federal government. These centers:

    • Contribute information to ongoing federal and national-level terrorist risk assessments and complete statewide, regional, or site-specific and topical threat, risk and vulnerability assessments
    • Disseminate federally generated alerts, warnings, and notifications bulletins regarding time-sensitive threats, situational awareness reports, common operating picture and analytical products.
    • Gather, process, analyze, and disseminate locally generated information, such as Suspicious Activity Reports.
    • Protect civil liberties and privacy interests of American citizens throughout the intelligence process keying in on behaviors and not race, sex, religion, gender, etc.

    Fusion Liaison Officer (FLO) Program

    The Fusion Liaison Officer (FLO) Program improves information sharing and communication capability between law enforcement, fire, health, other public safety elements, as well as private and public sector partners. Duties and responsibilities include:

    • Collect and receive suspicious activity reports
    • Facilitate information sharing
    • Provide homeland security-based training for multi-disciplined personnel
    • Disseminate homeland security related information
    • Identify community stakeholders and develop private sector relationships
