Mission Statement: To build a robust statewide network of public and private sector volunteers helping Texas law enforcement reduce vulnerabilities to critical infrastructure.

Overview of the Texas Fusion Center ILO Program

The ILO Program is designed to enhance information and intelligence sharing between law enforcement agencies and public and private sector critical infrastructure entities. ILOs are vetted to receive intelligence information and trained to properly identify and report suspicious activities, possible threats to critical infrastructure, and crimes to the state's 24/7 fusion center – the Texas Fusion Center (TFC). The TFC houses a mixture of state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies that work together to share information and coordinate activities. ILOs are a key component in protecting critical infrastructure in Texas.
