The Criminal Intelligence Coordinating Council (CICC), established in May 2004, is made up of members representing law enforcement and homeland security agencies from all levels of government and is an advocate for state, local, and tribal law enforcement and their efforts to develop and share criminal intelligence for the purpose of promoting public safety and securing the nation. The CICC operates at the policy level—setting priorities, directing research, and preparing advisory recommendations. The CICC’s research arm—the Global Intelligence Working Group (GIWG)—is composed of state, local, tribal, and federal justice, homeland security, and public safety representatives, and its membership draws on source experts from outside the working group as needed.
The Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) serves as the technical assistance provider for the CICC/GIWG and its parent organization, the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global). IIR supports the CICC and GIWG by providing project coordination activities, research and analysis services, policy/recommendation development assistance, meeting coordination, and Web site development and maintenance.
