The National Counterterroism Center (NCTC), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Department of Homeland (DHS) are pleased to announce the Interagency Threat Assessment and Coordination Group's (ITACG) Intelligence Guide for First Responders. The guide was developed by state and local police and firefighter personnel, in coordination with federal intelligence analysts, to assist state, local, and tribal first responders in accessing and understanding federal counter terrorism, homeland security, and weapons of mass destruction intelligence reporting. Plans are underway to disseminate one copy of the guide to each state and local law enforcement agency and fire department in the country. In addition, the Intelligence Guide for First Responders can be found in printable format here on LEO as well as the following federal government Web sites:
