The Secure Community Network has unveiled an all-new, state-of-the-art command center aimed at tracking and responding to any threats to the Jewish community residing in the US.
Called the National Jewish Security Operations Command Center (JSOCC), the centralized location is where its intelligence analysts and security professionals can monitor and track threats to the Jewish community and coordinate response with its partners including local, state, and federal law enforcement.
The facility features a 16-foot video wall to allow for “optimal incident track and response,” as well as individual workstations. JSOCC can seat eight people but has an overflow capacity to accommodate additional staff in the event of a major incident.
As quoted to JNS, Michael Masters, national director and CEO of SCN said, “The JSOCC will enhance our ability to provide greater protection and improved response time more effectively and efficiently, moving us into a more proactive position to address security concern and threats with key partners from law enforcement to Jewish communities.”
He added, “We are in the most complex and dynamic threat environment we have seen. In many years, recent data from the FBI and DHS, along with our own assessment and that of partners like the ADL [Anti-Defamation League] confirms this,” he said. “This past week, the FBI Director [Christopher Wray] testified that the number of domestic terrorism cases doubled in the last year—roughly three cases a day are being opened.”
