 Fusion Center Recognition Awards

  Posted on: Thursday, December 31, 2015
The Utah Statewide Information & Analysis Center (SIAC) was recognized during the 2015 Governor’s Award for Excellence for Outstanding Public Service.


The SIAC's work in supporting law enforcement with intelligence and analysis makes a significant and lasting impact on Utah communities. SIAC supports law enforcement on investigations ranging from homicide and violent crime to narcotics and homeland security-related threats. The SIAC provides integral services behind the scenes— in a support role— with little or no public recognition. SIAC handles numerous requests daily from law enforcement agencies both locally and nationwide. These requests have increased dramatically every year from almost 3000 in 2010, to over 8000 in 2014. This increase in workload has been accomplished with little or no additional staff.

Below are just two of the many examples of support SIAC provides (taken from internal reports):
 

  • "Cross Fusion Center Communication and Information Sharing through the Utah SIAC Intelligence Liaison Officer (lLO) Program Leads to the Arrest of Subject Making Online Threats"
  • "Utah SIAC Provides Information about Drug Trafficking Suspect, Leading to Positive Identification and Arrest"

In additional to criminal investigative support, SIAC analysts receive, assess, disseminate, and gather information and intelligence, providing key decision makers and line-level public safety officials with critical information in the execution of their duties. The key to the SIAC's outstanding public service is the ability of SIAC analysts to collaborate internally and with law enforcement and public safety officials throughout Utah and the United States. This collaboration and teamwork is critical in the efficient and effective execution of public safety services. SIAC analysts are a model of collaboration and teamwork, positively impacting the safety of Utah.
