The Regional Operations Intelligence Center (ROIC) is New Jersey’s state fusion center, a joint interagency intelligence enterprise comprised of 175 personnel from various law enforcement and public safety agencies. The ROIC is the State’s hub for intelligence and includes input and personnel from agencies such as the FBI, US Department of Homeland Security, NJOHSP, and numerous state, county, and municipal agencies. Analysts from all partnering agencies collaboratively link data to create “actionable” intelligence that guides tactical investigations in real time. The ROIC is also the home for the Office of Emergency Management and State Emergency Operations Center, and it serves as the command center for all State-led emergency response operations, such as natural disasters, chemical/nuclear emergencies, and terror alerts. During emergency response missions, the ROIC serves as the gateway for situational information and requests for aid. It allows a coordinated and measured response by matching requests with resources and personnel run by federal, state, and local agencies.
