On September 5, 2019, Governor Abbott released his executive orders relating to the prevention of mass attacks. I recently worked in a fusion center as a sworn peace officer and was entrenched in the process of networking, gathering, vetting and sharing information in a timely manner. In large part, a fusion center’s mission is exactly what the Governor is attempting to accomplish; halt, derail, intervene in a mass casualty attack.
The first couple of orders relate directly to fusion centers which were created in our country after 9/11. The intent was to create an environment in which local law enforcement agencies could report information to a regional information gathering center. The center would then analyze, vet, and share information with other local, State, and Federal agencies.
