Terrorism And National Security

Preventing terrorism remains the top priority of the Department of Justice. The National Security Unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office investigates and prosecutes cases involving attempted terrorist attacks, terrorism financing, foreign agents, hoax threats, export violations, immigration cases, and other offenses that threaten our national security.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office participates in the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force to investigate and prosecute cases involving terrorism and national security.

The National Security Unit operates the Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council, a group of federal, state, and local law enforcement officials, emergency management officials, and private sector security representatives to share information and provide training.

The National Security Unit participates in security planning for special events in the Eastern District of Michigan, such as the North American International Auto Show, major sporting events, and other events drawing large crowds.
