The Department of Defense has announced it will use the FBI-owned and maintained eGuardian suspicious activity reporting system as a long-term solution to ensure access to appropriate threat information.

The announcement follows two years of analysis and a six-month pilot program, and a recommendation this past January by the DoD Independent Review related to the shootings at Fort Hood that DoD adopt a reporting system for documenting, storing, and exchanging threat information.

Those using the system will be trained with regard to the protection of civil liberties.

Through its use, DoD law enforcement and security personnel will be able to share potential terrorist threats, terrorist events, and suspicious activity information with other state, local, tribal, federal law enforcement agencies, state fusion centers, and the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.
