Worldwide GSN Network

The Global Shield Network (GSN) consists of Law Enforcement/Intelligence agencies from around the world that share information and intelligence and encourage collaboration with private sector partners. The GSN exponentially increases the breadth and scope of intelligence and information sharing with the primary goal of preventing crime and terrorism abroad.

A vanguard in this regard, NYPD Shield as the founding entity to this global effort, set in place a template process to assist other agencies with the creation of their own Shield programs. This model began a very popular methodology to effectively share open-source intelligence, information, and resources with both law enforcement and private sector partners around the world. What began as a one agency local program, is now a shared initiative with law enforcement and private sector partners around the world.

If your Law Enforcement Agency is interested in starting a Shield program and joining the Global Shield Network, please contact us at
