CIAC Role in Homeland Security
In response to the September 11th attacks, the United States has created specialized agencies to coordinate efforts to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from, and prosecute acts of terrorism.
The Colorado Information Analysis Center (CIAC) is designed to be a cross-jurisdictional partnership between local, state, and federal agencies - including private sector participation when appropriate. This center provides for one central point in Colorado for the collection, analysis, and timely dissemination of terrorism-related information. Information is distributed from the CIAC in the form of daily reports, special reports, and bulletins to numerous agencies representing a multitude of disciplines.

This counter terrorism effort is centralized in order to enhance inter-agency cooperation and expedite information flow.
