Terrorism prevention site launched in Colorado
DENVER - Colorado law enforcement launched a Crimestoppers-like website Monday designed for citizens to report any suspicious activity they feel could lead to a terrorist act.
The Colorado Information Analysis Center (CIAC) will act as a "clearinghouse for terrorist threat information," making Colorado the 42nd state in the country to have a central location to fight terrorism.
"One person can make a difference," said Col. Mark Trostel, Chief of the Colorado State Patrol. "The new website will enable all of Colorado's residents to report suspicious activity. We fully recognize it takes a concerted effort by all citizens to keep terrorism at bay in our country."
The website and a 24-hour phone line will be staffed by three full-time State Patrol officers.
Coloradans who turn in information can remain anonymous if they choose or leave a contact e-mail or phone number.
Captain Brenda Leffler, who runs the CIAC, said all tips will be encrypted and the security used to guard the website uses the latest, most advanced technology.
After the information is analyzed by officers, it will be distributed to local police or federal investigators as appropriate.
"One of the strongest partners we have in fighting terrorism in our country and in our state are our citizens," said Trostel. "They see things on a regular basis that they need to have a method to communicate to authorities."
There are plans to advertise the new website with radio commercials and posters to be displayed at police stations throughout Colorado.
