Annual ITACG Report: A Success StoryPosted by Kshemendra Paul, ISE Program Manager on Thursday, December 9, 2010
I am pleased to announce the release of the annual review of the Interagency Threat Assessment Coordination Group (ITACG). The ITACG was established at the National Counterterrorism Center, to assist the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and other agencies produce Federally-coordinated terrorism-related information products tailored to the needs of State, local, tribal, and territorial governments and private sector partners.
There are several good news stories coming out of this year’s report. The group continues to play a crucial role is assisting Federal partners in interpreting and analyzing intelligence intended for State, local, tribal and territorial governments and private sector partners. We discovered that since last year, the ITACG has become more fully integrated into the federal intelligence production processes.
Also, in the last year, the ITACG coordinated more than 250 intelligence products, including 37 Roll Call Release products designed specifically for “street-level” first responders. Feedback on these products has been encouraging. Customers have found the Roll Call Release to be a good tool for providing situational awareness and educating first responders to a specific type of suspicious activity.
