Colorado Information Analysis Center Overview
The work of the CIAC ultimately enhances prevention, preparedness and security efforts for Colorado. By statute, the CIAC is identified as the Office of Prevention and Security, however, its working title is the CIAC. The CIAC is separated into four working business units: Counterterrorism/Strategic Intelligence, Investigative Analytical Support, Critical Infrastructure Protection and the Auto Theft Intelligence Coordination Center.
Counterterrorism/ Strategic Intelligence
The CIAC conducts analysis to provide timely, relevant and actionable information to prevent acts of terrorism, taking an all-crime, all-hazard approach. The information shared ranges from general awareness to strategic intelligence designed for the appropriate stakeholders in Colorado. The CIAC's documents are shared with other fusion centers across the country and with federal partners to enhance information sharing and terrorism prevention efforts nationwide.
Investigative Analytical Support
The CIAC processes criminal leads and requests, as well as ensures all relevant law enforcement agencies and jurisdictions potentially affected by a cross-jurisdictional event are alerted. The CIAC works collaboratively with partners to provide analytical assistance, facilitate the exchange of information between jurisdictions with investigative interests in the same case, and create intelligence documents to support active criminal activity. These CIAC documents may also be distributed to surrounding states and other fusion centers in support of CIAC partners seeking information on an active criminal case.
Critical Infrastructure Protection
The CIAC provides support to Colorado communities to protect and enhance resiliency of cyber and physical structures vital to Colorado’s infrastructure (e.g. Government facilities, Energy, Food/Agriculture, Water, and twelve other sectors defined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security). The center encourages owners and operators of critical infrastructure to share information and collaborate with the state to identify, deter, detect, disrupt, and protect vital Colorado infrastructure from threats and hazards. The CIAC is also integrating provisions of the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) into Colorado’s State Homeland Security and is an active participant in cyber security initiatives.
Auto Theft Intelligence Coordination Center (ATTIC)
The CIAC provides case support and intelligence information to law enforcement to help prevent auto theft. The center assists in identifying criminal trends related to auto theft and enhances the capabilities of local partners in recovering stolen vehicles. It is funded by a grant from the Colorado Auto Theft Prevention Authority.
