The center is part of the Florida domestic security strategy that requires the state to create a multidisciplinary information-sharing platform. It serves 10 Southwest Florida counties and is part of the Florida Fusion Center Network, which covers the entire state.

The center is an environment for exchanging information relating to all crimes and all hazards. The following disciplines are members of the center: fire, health, emergency management and law enforcement. This process relies on active involvement of state, local, tribal, and federal agencies and sometimes non-law enforcement agencies. The main products of the center are situational awareness reports, threat assessments, intelligence assessments, and information bulletins.
