Department of Justice Overview

As a counterterrorism tool, the criminal justice system has proven incredibly effective in both incapacitating terrorists and gathering valuable intelligence from and about terrorists. The question of how to overcome obstacles to sharing information among law enforcement and other justice system components is a significant issue in the fight against terrorism. All law enforcement and justice agencies-local, state, and federal-need to find ways to overcome obstacles to sharing information. Doing so not only increases their ability to solve crimes and keep communities safer, it also helps them meet their increasing responsibilities.
