Southeastern Wisconsin Threat Analysis Center (STAC)
The STAC is one of 77 fusion centers recognized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The STAC is co-located with the Milwaukee Police Department’s Intelligence Fusion Center. The STAC provides a platform for the exchange of information and intelligence between federal, state, local and tribal agencies with the goal of improving our ability to detect, prevent, and respond to crime and terrorism by analyzing data from various sources.
The ultimate goal of the fusion center is to provide a mechanism through which government, law enforcement, public safety and the private sector can come together with a common purpose and improve the ability to safeguard people and prevent criminal activity. Fusion centers embody the core of collaboration, and as demands increase and resources decrease, fusion centers have become an effective tool to maximize available resources and build trusted relationships.
Suspicious Activity Reporting - The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has launched a national "If You See Something, Say Something" public awareness campaign –a simple and effective program to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism and violent crime, and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity to the proper state and local law enforcement authorities. If you wish to report suspicious activity in Southeast Wisconsin call 414-935-7741. You may do so anonymously.
To augment the national “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Fusion Centers have instituted WiWATCH to provide a portal to educate the public and provide a means to report suspicious activity.
A critical element of the missions of the Wisconsin Fusion Centers is ensuring that the civil rights and civil liberties of persons are not diminished by our security efforts, activities, and programs. Consequently, the "WiWATCH" campaign respects civil rights and liberties by emphasizing behavior, rather than appearance, in identifying suspicious activity.
The STAC also serves as a source of information for local businesses and community-based organizations. Detective Carlo Davila provides interested parties with information on the appropriate response to a workplace emergency as well as additional details about the STAC itself.
