What is a Fusion Center?

A fusion center is a collaborative effort of two or more agencies that provide resources, expertise, and/or information to the fusion center with the goal of maximizing the ability to detect, prevent, apprehend and respond to all crimes hazards. The Florida Fusion Center (FFC) headquartered in Tallahassee, Florida is the State's designated fusion center. 

The NWFFC serves ten (10) counties in the Northwest region of Florida including Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, Washington, Bay, Jackson, Calhoun, and Gulf. The NWFFC acts as collectors, creators, and multi-directional conduits of relevant information that are vetted, analyzed, and appropriately disseminated to ensure situational awareness and multi-jurisdictional connectivity.
