ACLU Raises Privacy Concerns Over Fusion Centers


They are intended to give state officials timely information on potential security threats.

 

But the American Civil Liberties Union thinks “fusion centers,” including one in Springfield, may be overstepping the limits of privacy laws.

 

An attorney for the ACLU of Illinois says fusion centers are sometimes compiling information on people on the basis of their political views, not because of any actual wrongdoing.

 

Fusion centers, like the Illinois Statewide Terrorism and Intelligence Center in Springfield, are public-private partnerships that gather threat-related information and share it with other agencies.
