Template:Expand The Guardian Threat Tracking System is a reporting system used by the FBI to track threats and other intelligence information. It was established to collect data on terrorist threats and suspicious incidents, at seaports and other locations, and to manage action on various threats and incidents.  On August 21, 2007, the US Department of Defense announced that Guardian would take over data collection and reporting which was previously handled by the TALON database system.
