The policy outlines according to established law and regulations a set of rules for the DVIC’s employees, members, and other stakeholders, establishing how they can conduct their duties toward fulfilling the center’s purpose: to collect, analyze, and produce and disseminate criminal and public safety related intelligence. These stakeholders represent both local and federal law enforcement and other public sector center agencies as well as private sector entities.
The Center’s policy also dictates how its intelligence will be integrated with other information-sharing systems for “justice purposes,” and how it shall comply with certain enhanced privacy guidelines mandated by those systems in receiving and issuing SARs (Suspicious Activity Reports) and other intelligence disseminated through the Intelligence Sharing Environment.
The policy is embedded in its entirety below, along with a list of links to relevant statutes and regulations.

The policy also stipulates that it shall be made available to the public upon request and published online on the DVIC’s website “(currently being established and policy will be posted as soon as the website is published).”
In the coming days, look for several posts subjecting the document to the scrutiny it warrants and ruthlessly exploring and publishing weaknesses and dangers we discern.
