North Carolina Information Sharing and Analysis Center - NCISAAC
The Information Sharing and Analysis Center works with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in the fight against terrorism and criminal activity by sharing information. Members of the public, too, can take an active role by being aware of surroundings, being prepared and reporting any suspicious activity.
REPORT SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY
NCISAAC, also called the Fusion Center, serves as a focal point to receive, analyze, gather and share threat-related information among federal, state, local, tribal, territorial and private sector partners.

Fusion Center Supports DHS Component Investigation in North Carolina
Two individuals were acting suspicious near staging areas for the local Independence Day celebration and were reported to the North Carolina Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAAC) by Morehead City Police Department (MCPD). The ISAAC identified the subjects as two crew members of a shipping company who had absconded from a vessel a few days prior. The ISAAC shared this information with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for further investigation. ICE and CBP notified the U.S. Coast Guard, as well as security officers from the shipping company and the subjects were subsequently detained, escorted back to their vessel, and allowed to depart the country with their visas revoked.
Fusion Center Supports Identification of North Carolina-based Terrorist Group
NCISAAC contributed to the August 2009 arrest of Daniel Patrick Boyd, who was accused of recruiting individuals to take part in a conspiracy to advance violent jihad, including supporting and participating in terrorist activities abroad. Information developed through ISAAC's community outreach program, an effort to increase public awareness of the center and its mission, alerted fusion center personnel to a group of homegrown extremists plotting in a rural area south of Raleigh, North Carolina. This information was subsequently shared with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The suspect's trial made national news as he and members of his group were convicted of funding, training, and recruiting militants overseas. Seven members of the group were sentenced to prison and Boyd is serving an 18 year sentence.
