The National Capital Region Threat Intelligence Consortium (NTIC) employs an all-threats, all-hazards approach. We operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while serving a wide customer set. The NTIC, which is based in the District of Columbia’s Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, works in partnership with fusion centers in Maryland and Virginia, as well as the federal government, to conduct regional analysis and share information on terrorism, crime, and natural hazards.

The NTIC is one component of the national network of fusion centers, which the US Department of Homeland Security has sanctioned as a critical strategic initiative for sharing information across a range of natural and manmade threats.


Our focus is simple—to collect, validate, analyze, and share timely and actionable intelligence with our partners and the public.


To be the trusted source for intelligence and analysis on all threats and hazards while serving the NCR.

Our Organization

  • The Watch and Warn Center is a constant and reliable source for regional information. The center is comprised of the NCR Watch Desk, providing around-the-clock alert notifications and developing a common operating picture across the NCR. 


  • The Cyber Center is the NCR’s one-stop shop for cybersecurity information sharing, threat analysis, and incident reporting. The center focuses on increasing regional resiliency to cyber attacks by providing situational awareness and encouraging the widespread adoption of best practices.

  • The Public Safety Center is the face of the NTIC to our largest customer and partner—the public. It recognizes the value of public engagement and is dedicated to writing intelligence products at the unclassified level to inform and prepare NCR residents for all hazards.


  • The Analysis Center is a central hub for all tactical and strategic analysis for first responders, the broader intelligence community, and critical infrastructure partners. The center provides daily intelligence to law enforcement and first-responder communities while looking at long-term trend analysis. This provides customers with predictive information, enabling them to anticipate threats and take advantage of early warnings.



We stand with and behind each other. We recognize partnerships, both internal and external, are critical to achieving success. We cannot fulfill our Mission alone.


We take great pride in the quality of our work. We do every task, every project, every initiative, to the best of our ability.


We adopt a customer-first approach. Our favorite question is: How can we make our services better?
