Welcome to the Southern Nevada Counter Terrorism Centers Trusted Information Exchange (STIX). The SNCTC helps to safeguard the community by serving as a dynamic public safety nexus to proactively detect, deter, and defend against crime and terrorism. Recognizing crime, terrorism, and violent extremism effects our entire community, the SNCTC has a strong commitment to Building Communities of Trust for a Whole Community Approach to address these threats.

The mission of the SNCTC is to combat crime and terrorism in Nevada by improving communication and coordination among international, federal, state, local, tribal and private sector agencies.


STIX provides authorized users with access to constantly evolving training opportunities, publications and presentations, technical assistance, after-action reports and lessons learned. These courses and relevant materials have been designed as reference to assist public safety and private sector fusion center partners with the basic knowledge and best practices that will help them carry out their assigned duties and responsibilities.

Fusion Liaison Officer Program

A cornerstone prevention initiative of the SNCTC is the involvement of Fusion Liaison Officers (FLOs). An FLO is anyone working closely with the public safety/homeland security community, who has been selected, trained and properly certified by a Nevada Fusion Center or other analogous homeland security entity. The multi-jurisdictional/multi-disciplinary network, steeped incommunity policing principles, includes among others- law enforcement, fire, national guard/military, public health, critical infrastructure, public utility, and casino & hospitality partners. The mission of the FLO is to work in partnership with the community to recognize, report, and prevent acts of terrorism and violent extremism.

What is suspicious activity reporting? You've heard the words: "If you see something, say something". The goal is simple - putting in place a community awareness program designed to educate the public about behaviors and activities that may have a connection to terrorism. This initiative is a community program to help your neighborhood stay safe from terrorist activities. It is a partnership between your community and the public safety agencies. Trust Your Instincts: If a behavior or activity makes you feel uncomfortable, report it! You and your fellow community members can report behaviors and activities that look out of place (suspicious behaviors) for the environment. We can and must work together to prevent terrorist attacks and criminal activity.Click Here to Submit SAR Form
