The Terrorism Early Warning Group (TEWG) was formed as a regional cooperative effort among public safety and health agencies throughout the Greater Cincinnati area as a means to combat potential terrorist
activity. Its mission is to:
Exploit, collect, evaluate, analyze and disseminate criminal intelligence information
Share intelligence, information and resources by networking with agencies
Provide training and improve coordination among agencies
Provide vulnerability / risk assessments and target hardening
Counter terrorism via open sources and other means
Facilitate the protection of critical infrastructure / key resource facilities from physical and cyber threats
Facilitate the investigation of threats or hoaxes, suspicious devices or suspicious outbreaks of disease
Assist with consequence management plans
In short, TEWG takes proactive measures in order to detect, prevent, deter or respond to a terrorist act, or the
documented threat of such an act, and minimize the effects in the event a terrorist act occurs.
The general public, business and industry play a critical role by reporting suspicious persons and activities. Read more about terrorism
