ABSTRACT
In the past few years, the nation has witnessed devastating assaults on the USS Cole (DDG-67), the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon, and commencement of the military campaign against terrorism in the U.S. and abroad. These sober reminders of the current environment and the critical nature of the U.S. military's role also serve to highlight the key missions of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). Today, however, NCIS joins the many federal law enforcement agencies that have reengineered operations and supplemented responsiveness with anticipatory measures designed to prevent or reduce the major terrorist and criminal threats that confront us. Other NCIS efforts to maximize cross-pollination among federal law enforcement agencies includes assigning senior NCIS special agents to local FBI-sponsored joint terrorism task force offices in the United States, with emphasis on the Second Fleet's priority areas.
