Counterterrorism Financing Activities - Criminal Investigation (CI)


In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, federal law enforcement agencies have been mobilized to fight terrorism. In support of this national effort Criminal Investigation (CI) will devote resources to:

  • Furnish agents to support the FBI's Strategic Information Operations Center (SIOC), the Global Unit Command Post, and the new financial task forces currently being organized.
  • Staff the 35 Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF) and the 92 anti-terrorism task forces being organized at each United States Attorney's Office.
  • Provide special agents to the Air Marshal Program and the 2002 Olympics.
  • Provide financial investigative assistance in terrorism matters. This would include the investigation of money laundering and tax violations, including the use of tax exempt organizations to raise money to support foreign terrorist groups.
  • Provide assistance to terrorism investigations regarding the facilitation of emergency disclosure of 6103 information.
  • Provide security for government buildings and employees as necessary and appropriate.
