Terrorism Intelligence Unit
On October 1, 2001, the New Hampshire State Police created the Terrorism Intelligence Unit.
As part of the New Hampshire Information and Analysis Center, it is the responsibility of the New Hampshire State Police Terrorism and Intelligence Unit is to collect and analyze intelligence information relating to criminal and terrorist activity and to coordinate the dissemination of this intelligence among federal, state, county and local law enforcement agencies, ensuring compliance with the guidelines set forth within 28CFR, Part 23 of U.S. Federal Statutes. The unit also maintains the link to local, state and federal law enforcement agencies throughout the nation and world, including the FBI’s NH Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) and the United States Attorney’s Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council (ATAC). The Terrorism and Intelligence Unit continues to be the Division’s liaison with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), the New England State Police Information Network (NESPIN), the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC) and the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL).
At present, the Terrorism Intelligence Unit provides critical terrorist updates and officer safety information to all sworn members of the New Hampshire State Police and approximately 250 federal, county and local law enforcement agencies through an Internet based e-mail system.
