Risk Management Program History

Analysis of risk to a single jurisdiction by a single agency

8 regions analyzing and monitoring with shared best practices





Regional analysis and monitoring of risk across disciplines

Statewide collaborative analysis and situational awareness on a Common Operating Picture

the need for a cal cop common operating picture
The Need for a CAL COP (Common Operating Picture)

As existing risk management ecosystems continue to expand, there is a growing need for a common view to share and visualize regional data across the state

  • To address stakeholder needs, the ecosystem needs:
  • Effective information sharing: Share infrastructure, incidents, events, intelligence, and threat information to users across the state
  • Control over sharing: Control what information is shared to stakeholders in other regions and for how long it is shared
  • Better access to statewide data: Ability to see a more complete picture of emerging events, leveraging data shared from across the state in an interface optimized for operational use
  • Enhanced collaboration: Unite the separate systems to provide users the ability to collaborate with other California risk management users

Data and Systems

The Path Forward

Cal COP is an important evolution of the California statewide program and will deliver a significant enhancement to the existing program. The approach includes:


State Agencies



Streamlined Training

New, exportable training packages extend existing training to more easily bring new users into the program


Brand new visualization of shared and local data optimized for operational use

Expanded Reporting Capabilities

Availability of statewide data enables more robust reporting to meet state and Homeland Security requirements

Data Sharing &Security Model Increase in depth and breadth of data available to users authorized to view it

Scalable Solution

System supports easy integration of statewide data and simplified addition of new jurisdictions or communities of interest









Private Sector Partners






of Interest


Benefits of the Next Evolution

Built upon a unified data sharing environment, Cal COP provides many benefits to support statewide daily operational activities

  • Promotes the sharing of analytical findings, intelligence, and results through a statewide watchboard
  • Provides real-time actionable views and situational awareness across the State
  • Enables extended views of geo-located emergency assets and apparatus from one jurisdiction displayed on a watchboardfor other communities of interest authorized to view it
  • Visual alertsregarding threats, suspicious activity reports, and incidents to authorized COI
  • Statewide availability of data feeds such as CAD, SARs, AVL, and LPR data will be useful in operations that require state context or span regional boundaries
  • Addition of a statewide school safety community with the ability to submit school-related threat data to local risk management platforms enables enhanced situational awareness and potential early warning to a developing situation
  • On-demand reports on local or state data and activities

System Screen: Sharing Capabilities

Share assets, events, incidents, and channel data to enhance situational awareness for other user communities

Advanced capabilities include the ability to set an expiration date for shared data

Share your data with user groups or with individual users from other communities


System Screen: Common Operating Picture (Watchboard)

Configure the view to show the data and timeframes that make sense for you

View your own local data as well as data shared to you from others

Click icons to view summary details about local and shared data

Map controls, data layers, and drawing tools

Time-based list of threat and risk data

Table-based views of all local and shared data

Collapsible widgets to maximize map view


Cal COP Use Cases – Mutual Aid Response (Wildfire)


  • Wildfire in LA County requires mutual aid resources from Orange County
  • Orange County responders are not familiar with the LA County critical infrastructure under threat or with ongoing incidents created and monitored by LA County
  • Orange County responders need fast and easy access to the data that’s relevant to their effort

Capabilities available under Cal COP:

  • LA users select critical data to share with Orange County users (assets, incidents, CAD, AVL, team locations)
  • Orange County users select data to share with LA users (AVL, field reports, team locations)
  • Orange County users access their Watchboard to:
    • Gain situational awareness by viewing shared wildfire data geospatially and viewing basic information about wildfire data
  • LA users access their Watchboard to:
    • Monitor overall response including shared data from Orange County responders


    • Orange County users have quick access to the LA County data that is relevant to their response efforts
    • Orange County users are familiarized with the environment prior to arrival and during response
    • Blue force tracking enables both Orange County and LA responders to be aware of each other’s locations and efforts, maximizing the efficiency of resource deployment
    • Shared data provides enhanced situational awareness and regional coordination is improved as managers from both jurisdictions can monitor a common operating picture

Cal COP Use Case – Intel Fusion (SARs/CAD/Incidents)


  • Multiple IED threat is detected in the LALB region
  • Concern around possibility of planned attack with additional threats to other jurisdictions

Capabilities available under Cal COP:

  • LALB users share relevant Suspicious Activity Repots (SARs), CAD, and incident data with all California Fusion Centers
  • NCRIC users, as one of the shared data recipients, are able to view shared data from LALB to look for similar patterns that may exist in the Bay Area
  • NCRIC users can share any relevant data in their jurisdiction back out to the other Fusion Centers


    • California Fusion Center users are better informed and have real-time access to unfolding events in the LALB region
    • Other jurisdictions use the shared LALB data to focus their efforts and rule out a similar threat in their own region
    • Other jurisdictions can share relevant data from their own regions to provide important context for the emerging threat
