Former FBI agent and current San Diego Sheriff, Bill Gore is looking for a highly-skilled terrorism analyst to join the Department’s highly coveted Fusion Center. The job requires candidates to obtain top-security clearances, experience with terrorism activities and the ability to work with other federal agencies like the CIA.
Due to San Diego’s proximity to the southwest border, its ties to the 9/11 suicide terrorist attack (two terrorists lived in San Diego when Gore was with the FBI) and his prior work as a G-man, the Sheriff Department participates in the Regional Terrorism Threat Assessment Center (RTTAC) multi-agency task force.
The task force focuses on terrorism-specific intelligence and information gathering in an effort to prevent future attacks inside U.S. borders.
According to the Sheriff Department website, participating agencies include the San Diego Sheriff's Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), California Department of Justice, California Highway Patrol, Federal Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Governor's Office of Homeland Security. The RTTAC is co-located with the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force and a Criminal Intelligence component and together comprise the Law Enforcement Coordination Center (LECC), San Diego's Intelligence "Fusion Center."
The new Terrorism Liaison Officer will work with other San Diego first responders to “outsmart” potential terrorists by strategically formulating a possible threat and create contingency plans to prevent a terrorist incident.
“The concept is simple: Prior to terrorists flying jet liners into buildings, there are certain planning actions they must do to prepare for such an attack. These actions are often accompanied by indicators/warnings ("clues") that an attack is being planned. By providing an awareness of these indicators, the goal is to encourage reporting of suspicious circumstances/incidents, thus preventing an attack,” according to the Sheriff Department.
Some of the job duties Sheriff Gore requires from potential candidates include: Evaluating data from a variety of law enforcement sources, conduct extensive research, and prepare intelligence products for dissemination by other agencies familiar with terrorism threats.
Specifically the top-secret position also requires past intelligence analyst experience pertaining to counter-terrorism, international terrorism, critical infrastructure knowledge and the ability to work with other federal agencies.
The intelligence analysts should have analytical work experience on the southwest border and work experience involving products developed from High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) initiatives.
The Sheriff Department directs those wishing to be considered to register with Morgan Franklin Clearance Jobs.
