DHS-DOJ Partner on Suspicious Activity Reporting

DHS-DOJ Partner on Suspicious Activity Reporting

The Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI) is an outgrowth of a number of separate but related activities over the last several years that respond directly to the mandate to establish a “unified process for reporting, tracking, and accessing [SARs]” in a manner that rigorously protects the privacy and civil liberties of Americans, as called for in the National Strategy for Information Sharing.

The NSI strategy is to develop, evaluate, and implement common processes and policies for gathering, documenting, processing, analyzing, and sharing information about terrorism-related suspicious activities. The long-term goal is for state, local, tribal, and federal law enforcement organizations, as well as private sector entities, to participate in the NSI, allowing them to share information about suspicious activity that is potentially terrorism-related.
