Homeland Security states as its' three primary objectives being to:

prevent future terrorist attacks;

reduce the nation's vulnerability; and minimize the damage and recovery from attacks that occur. (Chen and Wang, 2005)

1) intelligence and warning;

2) border and transportation security;

3) Domestic Counterterrorism;

4)Protecting critical infrastructure and key assets;

5) defending against catastrophic terrorism; and 6) emergency-preparedness and responses. (Chen and Wang, 2005)

The Homeland Security Department highlights information sharing as the primary focus for the future.

SUMMARY and CONCLUSION

It is clear that future policing and homeland security initiatives will be greatly reliant upon information sharing in order to gain more effectiveness. The varying aspects of criminal intelligence, tactical intelligence and others are on the path to integration as evidenced by the literature reviewed in this report.
