Law Enforcement and the
Oklahoma Information Fusion Center
"Lest We Forget"
April 19th, 1995, was a tragic day in the history of Oklahoma. The Murrah bombing brought destruction, tremendous grief and sorrow to our state. While debris was still falling and papers floating in the air, Law Enforcement Officers from around the state responded. The spirit of cooperation demonstrated in the response to this tragedy was inspirational and demonstrates what can be accomplished when we work together.
The only way to prevent another tragedy is by continuing that same spirit of cooperation in the gathering, analyzing and dissemination of information. The OIFC serves as a central hub to receive information, compare it with other information, analyze it and get it out to the people who protect the citizens of Oklahoma. By connecting seemingly disparate pieces of information, a clearer picture of what is happening can be developed that will help law enforcement officials make informed decisions and take action to stop those that would harm our citizens before they can act.
