Overview Edit

The California Anti-Terrorism Information Center was formed in the wake of the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon to provide law enforcement with statewide intelligence support to combat terrorism.

Through the Center, law enforcement agencies in California can obtain information on terrorist threats and activities anywhere in the state through a secure, central data base. The Center was established by the California Attorney General and Governor in partnership with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.

Trained intelligence professionals from the Attorney General's Division of Law Enforcement and other agencies analyze information submitted to the Center and assess implications for the health and safety of Californians. Reliable information that meets the stringent guidelines for intelligence gathering and civil rights protections will be made available only to authorized local, state and federal law enforcement personnel as necessary to protect the health and safety of Californians and others at risk from criminal terrorist activity.

The Center is part of California's response to a federal call for counter-terrorist task forces to prevent future attacks.
