Become a CIAC TLO

The Colorado Information Analysis Center (CIAC) Threat Liaison Officer (TLO) program is designed to strengthen information sharing and enhance multi-jurisdiction and multi-disciplinary partnerships throughout Colorado. The program was developed to provide participants with effective means of information sharing related to local, regional, and global threats, suspicious activity and large-scale incidents. The TLO program integrates participants into a large system of resources through a process of combining public, non-profit and private sector partners into an effective and sustainable two-way flow of information.

A TLO is any law enforcement (sworn or non-sworn), emergency services, military, public health, private, non-profit or other public sector employee who has responsibility within their agency to report and disseminate suspicious activity and/or other threat related information and has been properly certified through the CIAC TLO training program.


Applicants to the TLO program must:

  • Be a U.S. Citizen
  • Be referred by an active TLO or CIAC staff member or partner
  • Have a supervisor or agency representative complete a nomination form
  • Successfully complete a one (1) day TLO certification class
  • Participate in at least two (2) TLO events annually
  • Successfully complete a TLO Recertification Class every three (3) years to remain active in the program
  • Review threat information and intelligence sent by the CIAC and distribute to relevant internal stakeholders as appropriate
  • Respond to CIAC requests for information in a timely manner


As a TLO you will receive access to:

  • Relevant threat related information, intelligence, training and resources
  • A statewide network of multi-jurisdictional and multi-disciplinary partners
  • Regular updates on what the CIAC is working on and how you can assist
