The Cedar Rapids Police Department is a member of the Iowa Law Enforcement Intelligence Network (LEIN) Region 3 Fusion Center, which in turn is a part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF).
The Iowa LEIN Region 3 Fusion Center and JTTF serve as liaison with other organizations for the exchange of terrorism-related information.
The role of the public in observing and reporting terrorism-related activity is essential to homeland security effectiveness.
The Cedar Rapids Police Department is committed to providing terrorism awareness information to enable the public to identify and report terrorism-related information as indicated and needed.
In these instances, the department will:
- Prepare Public Service Announcements for local radio and television stations, at times, containing information.
- Provide a link for citizens to report suspect terrorism activity. Citizens can submit a tip to the Federal Bureau of Investigation by Reporting a Crime electronically.
- Prepare and distribute terrorism awareness brochures during community meetings. Brochures or handouts will be updated periodically to reflect changes in threats, preparedness, or citizen reporting procedures.
