So what’s NCRIC – it has something to do with HIDTA (Northern California High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area)?
As seen on the side of bus from our quite horrible MUNI transit system:
And both these outfits don’t merit Wikipedia entries excepting for this Kevin V. Ryan hagiography written by an Interested Party at an Area Law Firm?
“The Northern California Regional Intelligence Center (NCRIC) is an Intelligence Sharing Initiative owned and operated by the Federal, State and Local Public Safety Partners of the Region.”
And there’s this:
“The NCRIC was established by the Northern California High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (NC HIDTA) Executive Board, combining the personnel, intelligence and investigative resources of that region’s Investigatve [sic] Support Center (ISC) and the Northern California Regional Threat Assessment Center (NC RTAC). NCRIC is an integral component of The National Fusion Center Enterprise and is one of 78 State Governor designated and DHS recognized fusion centers in The United States.”
(Hey, do “About Us” webpages from the gov’mint typically have typos? Nope.)
So what’s up with all this alphabet soup? IDK
Is it a good thing or a bad thing? IDK
All right, keep alert, fellow Americans…
