Handout Nationwide SAR Initiative Factsheet

The Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI) initiated operations in March 2010 with the challenge of ensuring that regardless of where in the country suspicious activity is reported, these potential indicators of terrorist activity can be shared, analyzed, and compared with other information nationwide. The NSI has worked hard to incorporate the informal processes that traditionally exist within law enforcement agencies into the standards, policies, and processes developed by the NSI that allow fusion centers and law enforcement agencies to easily share information with the critical partners that need it to help identify and prevent terrorist threats.
