Senate Enrolled Act 247 – State Intelligence Agencies

Sen. Tom Wyss, R-Fort Wayne, introduced this bill that among other things establishes the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center to analyze intelligence information relating to criminal activity or terrorism. The center is a main repository of information for local law enforcement agencies to report all manner of suspicious activity. As passed, the bill adds discussion of information about preventing terrorism as secret and also allows intelligence assessment records to be confidential. The bill’s original language would have made any meetings and records of the Fusion Center Counterterrorism and Security Council secret.
