Best Practice:

SRPD Full Partner Members of East Valley Gang and Criminal Information Fusion Center (EVGCIFC):

  • Established in September 2007, the East Valley Gang and Criminal Information Fusion Center (EVGCIFC) partnership includes Local, Tribal, County, State and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies sharing crime information across jurisdictional boundaries.

  • Local partners include: Mesa PD, Scottsdale PD, Chandler PD, Gilbert PD, Tempe PD and Salt River PD. Associate members include: ATF, AZDOC Parole, Maricopa County Probation and the USMS.

  • This diverse collaborative partnership is consistent with President Obama’s Tribal Consultation Letter (dated 110509), Presidential Executive Order Number 13175 and Attorney General Eric H. Holder’s Letter to Tribal Leaders (dated 111309).

  • SRPD is the only Indian Country Police Department actively participating in a Local Fusion Center Nationwide (out of the 71 Fusion Centers) daily receiving Critical DHS information as well as exchanging Local Career Criminal and Gang information.

  • The System provides for a surgical approach for release and exchange of information combined with controls, checks and balances.

  • Agency’s representative is the sole provider of access to Tribal Agency’s RMS at the Fusion Center. This creates personal accountability through the Chain of Command.

Increasing public safety through information sharing and crime data exchange

Increasing Public Safety through Information Sharing and Crime Data Exchange

  • Indian Country Intelligence Network (ICIN) was established in 1994.

  • This organization was the first within Indian Country Law Enforcement to establish a State-wide collaborative partnership between all 21 Arizona Indian Tribes to improve communication, provide training and strengthen relationships with neighboring jurisdictions.

  • ICIN is comprised of Law Enforcement executives from Tribal Law Enforcement and Correction agencies, representatives from BIA, FBI, United States Attorney's Office, Tribal Prosecutors, Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, Arizona Department of Public Safety and State and Municipal Police agencies throughout Arizona.

Increasing Public Safety through Information Sharing and Crime Data Exchange

  • More now than ever, Police must work collaboratively using an Intelligence Based Policing Model with the controlled sharing of information with our neighboring Police Agencies and Communities to build partnerships.

  • Communication is the key.

  • Partnerships change lives.

  • Today, there are ICIN Associations also located in California, Nevada, Washington and New Mexico.
