Local Police Fighting International Terrorism
Hilton New York, 1335 Avenue of the Americas, Gibson Suite, 2nd Floor
Saturday, August 9, 2008 -- 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

What is the appropriate role of cities in national security? Attend this free program for a discussion of the issues raised by increasingly sophisticated intelligence capabilities being developed at the local level in major cities, including a briefing on what cities and local police are doing to fight international terrorism. With particular emphasis on the intelligence activities in the cities of New York and Los Angeles, as well as the role of the FBI and other federal agencies in working with city officials, the program will examine the issues from local and federal law enforcement and intelligence perspectives. How do they interact? Have these cities gone too far?

Herman, Centennial Professor of Law, Brooklyn Law School; Samuel Rascoff, Assistant Professor of Law, New York University, School of Law and former Director of Intelligence Analysis, NYPD; Michael Rolince, Senior Associate, Booz Allen Hamilton and former Chief of the FBI’s International Terrorism Operations Section; John P.
