Nationwide SAR Initiative Annual Report 2011   [open pdf - 619KB]

"The Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI) Program Management Office (PMO) was established in March 2010 and is a collaborative effort led by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) law enforcement partners. The NSI PMO has been working with the National Network of Fusion Centers, hometown security partners, and SLTT and federal law enforcement to implement the policies, processes, and standards of the NSI across all levels of government while ensuring that privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties are protected. Over the past year, the NSI PMO has brought in new staff members who have become essential in the continued development of the NSI. […] The NSI has worked diligently in implementing the standards, policies, and processes of the NSI across the National Network of Fusion Centers, and as of March 2012, 68 fusion centers have the capability to contribute and share suspicious activity reports, expanding the reach of the NSI to over 14,000 law enforcement agencies in 46 states, including the District of Columbia. The expansion of the NSI has allowed the Federated Search Tool to be accessed by more trained users--increasing the number of searches to more than 43,000--and over 17,000 SARs were submitted for sharing by the end of March 2011."
