Terrorism Early Warning: 10 Years of Achievement in Fighting Terrorism and Crime
Terrorism is an issue of concern to law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. Since the 9/11 attacks, law enforcement agencies are increasingly called upon to assist in the prevention, response to, and investigation of criminal conspiracies which support extremist movements and terrorist groups. To be effective in addressing terrorism, police must work closely with their communities and among themselves. They must also learn new skills and work with new partners. This requires a great degree of understanding: of the threat, of communities, of analytical approaches and intelligence. These must be combined effectively and appropriately while nurturing and maturing public trust.
