U.S. law enforcement officials, first responders, and the private sector need timely, relevant, and actionable intelligence to secure the Nation against potential threats. Some of this intelligence can be produced with open source information –- publicly-available information that can be disseminated quickly to an appropriate audience to meet a specific intelligence requirement. These unclassified intelligence products, derived from aggregated and analyzed information available from sources such as newspapers, periodicals, the Internet, scientific journals, and others, can provide law enforcement with the actionable intelligence they need to enhance their capabilities and make tactical decisions about where to deploy their limited resources. The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) was established, in part, to improve the sharing of information among Fed., State, and local govt. agencies and the private sector. Yet information sharing remains a major homeland security challenge. DHS should disseminate open source intelligence because this type of unclassified product can be shared with law enforcement and appropriate partners in the private sector, regardless of whether they have security clearances. Unfortunately, DHS has not effectively exploited this type of information to provide essential analytical products. In fact, DHS’ efforts have lagged behind the rest of the Fed. govt. This report surveyed over 350 State, local, and tribal law enforcement officials to better understand their intelligence needs and the potential benefits of an open source program at DHS, in light of other open source activities underway across the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC).
