This Service Specification package provides the files and documents necessary for stakeholders to gain an understanding of the Submit Suspicious Activity – Suspicious Activity Reporting Service, and the rules applicable to its implementation; the main components of the Service Specification are the Service Description, along with artifacts and schema folders with related files, and metadata files.
The Service Description Document (SDD) provides stakeholders with all aspects of the Submit Suspicious Activity – Suspicious Activity Reporting (SSA-SAR) Service that are not directly tied to the physical implementation of the Service. SSA-SAR allows law enforcement and public safety agencies to submit information related to suspicious activity to fusion centers; it includes electronic system-to-system exchange of information related to suspicious activity between law enforcement or public safety agencies and fusion centers. SSA-SAR is specifically related to counterterrorism. The SDD notes that the submission of information via phone, fax, e-mail, etc., is outside the scope of the SSA-SAR Service; it lays out the Service overview, including scope, capabilities, real-world effects, security classification, service specification package version, and more; it also provides a primary and alternative flow for business scenarios; Service interoperability requirements, including Service assumptions and dependencies, policies and contracts, security, privacy, and other requirements; as well as service model, and behavior action and process models.
