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 multidisciplinary 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. 

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.

  • Be a U.S. Citizen
  • Be referred by an active TLO or CIAC staff member or partner

  • 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
  • Act as the primary point of contact between your agency and the CIAC during unfolding events.
  • 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.
