Recommendations for Agency and Community Leaders

  • Agency leaders need to ensure that staff in their organizations are trained to conduct threat assessments.
  • Leaders should consider expanding ongoing efforts that help keep information that is relevant to mass attack investigations from being left in the field, such as the NYPD Field Intelligence Officer, Phoenix Police Department Patrol Intelligence Officer, and TLO programs.
  • Leaders should have policies in place that address how they will relate to their local fusion centers—who the POCs will be, how fusion centers will be asked for assistance and information, and how agencies will respond to requests from fusion centers.
