Justice to study terrorism impact
Amid controversy over the burden homeland security expenses have imposed on state and local governments, the Justice Department announced plans for a survey of international crime and terrorism.
In a Federal Register notice, the Office of Justice Programs asked for comments on its proposed survey of law enforcement administrators and investigators regarding international crime and terrorism.
"The survey will gather information about the impact of terrorism and other transnational crimes on jurisdictions across the country, including resource allocation, collaboration with other agencies, extent of activity and awareness of activity," according to the Federal Register notice.
The Justice Department said it would use the survey results to advise the National Institute of Justice, federal law enforcement agencies and state and local law enforcement agencies on how state and local jurisdictions are affected by terrorism and international crime. *
