Terrorism and Export Crimes Section

Section Overview

The Terrorism and Export Crimes Section works closely with agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other members of the Central District’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces to investigate suspected terrorists, prevent terrorist crimes, and bring criminal charges when warranted.  The section also oversees the Central District’s Export and Anti-Proliferation Global Law Enforcement (“EAGLE”) Task Force.  Formed in January 2008, the EAGLE Task Force is an initiative designed to leverage the capabilities of more than a dozen law enforcement agencies, as part of their critical mission to investigate and disrupt illegal arms trafficking and the unlawful proliferation of sensitive United States technologies.  AUSAs in the Terrorism and Export Crimes Section primarily handle investigations and prosecutions involving counterterrorism, counter proliferation, export control, national security cyber threats, counter-espionage matters, mishandling of classified material, cases involving weapons of mass destruction, threats and hoaxes, as well as other criminal offenses.
