SWTSC BACKGROUND

The SWTSC was formed in 1999 after six Transportation Security Managers from different transportation companies met in Dallas, Texas. The meeting was in response to the issue of a lack of communication between transportation companies and law enforcement concerning criminal offenses involving the supply chain and the transportation infrastructure. The meeting lead to the formation of this organization and a partnership being developed with law enforcement and other industry councils. The SWTSC developed a regional BOLO and alert notification system which over a period of time has grown into a very essential element of a growing national information sharing network.
