Investigative Support Center (ISC)
The Investigative Support Center's (ISC) mission is to provide detailed and timely investigative support, deconfliction services, and tactical analytical assistance to NEHIDTA initiatives, participating agencies, and law enforcement throughout New England, resulting in maximum disruption and dismantlement of criminal organizations. The NEHIDTA ISC produces strategic intelligence reporting to assist investigators in probing major conspiracies, projecting potential criminal drug and money laundering operations, and understanding organizational structure of local, national, and trans-national drug trafficking organizations.
The NEHIDTA Watch Center, working in tandem with the ISC, provides 24/7 deconfliction services to minimize investigative and operational conflicts among agencies to ensure officer safety. Deconfliction is the verification and automated notification of law enforcement agencies to ongoing operations in close proximity to one another or investigations targeting the same subject. This service is provided free of charge and can be accessed via phone, email, or fax.

The SC works in coordination with Massachusetts public health officials and the CDC to conduct the Overdose Response Strategy and assist in community prevention and treatment initiatives.
