On-Demand Webinar

Enhancing Fusion Center and LE Operations Through Risk Prioritization

Quickly turning data into action is integral to the efficiency of fusion centers. Learn how to optimize with risk prioritization.

About the webinar

The intelligence cycle grounds the fusion center process.

While the fusion center’s vast and diverse constituency depends on its services, very few in this constituency are aware of or apply the intelligence process in their operations. This poses challenges in addressing the high-priority needs of fusion center constituencies.

In this presentation, we’ll learn how to educate fusion center constituents on risk identification and prioritization.

Education can enable better data collection, prevent overwhelming center resources and enhance analytic results. These results create actionable intelligence for operational responses and awareness of all crimes, threats and hazards.

We’ll also explore how technology, an enabling asset, shortens the data-to-action timeline while enhancing knowledge and understanding of risks like gun violence, gangs and drugs.
