1082. Investigative Jurisdiction

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has investigative jurisdiction. However, where the solicited Federal crime of violence is within the investigative jurisdiction of another Federal law enforcement agency, it may be appropriate for that other agency to be involved in or assume responsibility for investigating the solicitation offense. The issue should be resolved on a case by case basis.
