Red Teaming for Fusion Centers

The San Diego Law Enforcement Coordination Center (SD-LECC) is a Department of Homeland Security–recognized fusion center and a member of the California State Threat Assessment System (STAS). It comprises numerous agencies that collaborate to provide resources, expertise, and information to local, state, and federal partners. The SD-LECC offers a variety of services, including analysis and generation of intelligence products and intelligence briefings, investigative case support, and de-confliction for law enforcement operations. This article discusses the process of developing Red Team tabletop exercises for the center and how the process and results benefited both the fusion center and participants, while also improving awareness of potential threats among public safety and security personnel throughout the region.
