Time to Assign a Law Enforcement Agency Exclusively to Combat Terrorism

Noah Waters, Yvonne Doll

Abstract


Although there are a myriad of federal U.S. law enforcement agencies that are assigned to and partner with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), no law enforcement agency is exclusively dedicated to the task of fighting terrorism. Compelling data and sentiments of professionals and experts in the field of antiterrorism (interviewed in 2011) supported the establishment of a law enforcement agency or unit that is exclusively dedicated to antiterrorism. Law enforcement’s role in the detection, apprehension, and adjudication of suspected terrorists may require more concentration.
