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.

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:
