Information Sharing Resources


There are numerous resources and Web sites related to information sharing. The following list of resources and sites is provided by the National Criminal Intelligence Resource Center (NCIRC). To recommend additional Web sites or resources for this list, send an e-mail to [email protected].

The Web sites listed below are independent from one another. Each site may have its own registration process, requiring you to use separate usernames and passwords.

  • Automated Critical Asset Management System (ACAMS) is a Web-enabled information services portal that helps state and local governments build critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) protection programs in their local jurisdictions.
  • Bomb Arson Tracking System (BATS) is a Web-based case management system that provides state and local arson and explosives investigators with access to up-to-date arson and explosives investigative data from across the nation. BATS is not just limited to your local jurisdiction or state. BATS provides access to national arson and explosives incident information.
  • The Federal Protective Service (FPS) provides integrated security and law enforcement services to federally owned and leased buildings, facilities, properties, and other assets. The FPS mission is to render federal properties safe and secure for federal employees, officials, and visitors in a professional and cost-effective manner by deploying a highly trained and multidisciplined police force.
  • Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) is a national secure and trusted Web-based portal for information sharing and collaboration among federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, private sector, and international partners engaged in the homeland security mission. HSIN is made up of a growing network of communities, called Communities of Interest (COIs). COIs are organized by state organizations, federal organizations, or mission areas such as emergency management, law enforcement, critical sectors, and intelligence. Users can securely share within their communities or reach out to other communities as needed. HSIN provides secure, real-time collaboration tools, including a virtual meeting space, instant messaging, and document sharing. HSIN allows partners to work together instantly, regardless of their location, to communicate, collaborate, and coordinate. Please contact [email protected] for further information.
  • Homeland Security Information Network–Intelligence (HSIN-Intel) is a chartered, vetted community of homeland security professionals from all levels of government who share homeland security information and analysis to address threats to the Homeland. HSIN-Intel provides intelligence stakeholders across the Homeland Security Enterprise with a secure platform for effective, efficient, and timely collaboration and sharing of Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU) information, data, products, analytic exchange, and situational awareness. Membership to HSIN-Intel is open to all those who collaborate on homeland security-related analytical issues; analysts and personnel from federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial homeland and security communities; and the National Network of Fusion Centers. Please contact [email protected] for membership criteria and information.
  • OneView is a geospatial visualization tool designed for the use of homeland security partners in protecting the nation's critical infrastructure and key resources. The OneView application provides all of the functionality of the Integrated Common Analytical Viewer (iCAV) but adds new features and data from the Microsoft Bing Maps platform and the Geospatial Information Infrastructure (GII). OneView still requires HSIN credentials, just as iCAV does.
  • Intelink is the name of the classified and highly secure intranet used by the U.S. Intelligence Community.
  • The Law Enforcement Enterprise Portal (LEEP) is a secure, internet-based communications gateway providing law enforcement agencies, intelligence groups, and criminal justice entities access to beneficial resources. These resources will strengthen case development for investigators, enhance information sharing between agencies, and be accessible in one centralized location.
  • The National Criminal Intelligence Resource Center (NCIRC) provides criminal justice professionals with a multitude of resources for law enforcement intelligence operations. The secured site is accessible through RISSNET™ or LEO and provides additional training materials and information resources expressly for law enforcement professionals.
  • RISSNET™ was developed by the Regional Information Sharing Systems® (RISS) using the latest in technology to provide law enforcement agencies with a secure infrastructure. RISSNET enables officers nationwide and in partnering countries to communicate and share critical information. RISSNET serves as the connection backbone for numerous information and intelligence systems.
  • The Technical Resource for Incident Prevention (TRIPwire) is a secure, collaborative information sharing network for bomb squad, law enforcement, and other emergency services personnel to learn about current terrorist improvised explosive device (IED) tactics, techniques, and procedures, including design and emplacement considerations.
