Criminal Division

National Security Section

AUSAs in the National Security Section (“NSS”) handle cases involving international and domestic terrorist activities, threats against the president, espionage, and the export of military technology and other controlled items from the United States. NSS AUSAs work closely with the District’s four Joint Terrorism Task Forces (“JTTFs”), which consist of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies working on national security issues. NSS AUSAs participate in a number of working groups and security task forces to develop and improve the District’s security. NSS AUSAs are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide advice to FBI and other JTTF agents on investigatory tactics and responses to threats of terrorist activities.

Individuals who wish to report activity that they believe may be related to terrorism should call the FBI at (310) 477-6565.
