HS STAC WiWATCH Server 2017 (pdf)

WEM will provide grant funds to the Southeastern Threat Analysis Center (STAC) for the purchase of a new server for the WiWATCH Portal. The STAC has used an 'all crimes' approach in preventing crime and terrorism. In order to accomplish this, the STAC utilizes the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative (NSI). The NSI provides a national capability to gather, document, process, analyze, and share information among various state, local, tribal, and federal agencies.

The STAC carefully assesses each SAR submission before sharing thorough the NSI.
