Why Is the Fusion Process Important? • Supports an all-source, all-crimes, all-hazards, all-threats approach to intelligence • Blends data from different sources, including law enforcement, public safety, and the private sector • Supports risk-based, information-driven prevention, response, and consequence management programs • Supports intelligence-led policing • Fusion is the overarching process of managing the flowing of information and intelligence across all levels and sectors of government and the private sector
