The FBI is a national law enforcement agency. After 9/11, the FBI officially made counterterrorism its top priority. A renewed focus on domestic intelligence gathering is a component of this new strategy.
Your task with this assignment is to review and evaluate these changes and their results. Prepare a well-researched report in Microsoft Word that covers the following points in 5â€“7 pages:
- What is the role of the FBI in coordinating domestic intelligence efforts at the local level? How does this impact local law enforcement agencies?
- Describe organizations that the FBI operates in conjunction with local police and/or private sector organizations for the purpose of sharing information.
- How does the expansion of police authority in the interest of fighting terrorism impact the local police responses to more traditional domestic crime?
- Are there any law enforcement agencies that do not have a counterterrorism plan? Why would an agency not have a counterterrorism plan? How would not having a counterterrorism plan impact the agencyâ€™s effectiveness?
