2019 Annual Report

FW INTEX Fusion Center In August 2019, the Fort Worth Intelligence Exchange (FW INTEX) Fusion Center (a unit within the FWPD’s Intelligence Section) was designated as the 8th fusion center in the State of Texas by Governor Greg Abbott and the 80th fusion center in the nation. What is a fusion center? It is a collaborative effort of two or more federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial (SLTT) government agencies that combines resources, expertise, or information with the goal of maximizing the ability of such agencies to detect, prevent, investigate, appre- hend, and respond to criminal or terrorist activity. A new shortcut to iWatchTX.org was put on Police and Fire computers. This is the Texas Suspicious Activity Reporting Network - iWatchTexas, where anyone can report suspicious activities or behaviors that may indi- cate criminal, terroristic, or school safety-related threats in our area and will be forwarded to the fusion cen- ter. Employees and citizens are encouraged to use this website to submit a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) to report activity related to:

Threat to Life Situations

School Threat Situations

Terroristic Threat Situations

Suspicious Activity
