Terrorism Advisory Council (ATAC)
On September 17, 2001, the US Attorney General directed that each federal district establish an Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council (formerly the Anti-Terrorism Task Force) to enhance information sharing among federal, state and local law enforcement; other first responders and private parties. The primary objectives of the ATAC are 1) the prevention and disruption of terrorist activity by implementing the full range of resources available to investigate terrorist incidents and 2) the vigorous prosecution of those who have committed, or intend to commit, terrorist acts in the United States.
Assistant U.S. Attorney David Godwin is the ATAC Coordinator for the Northern District of West Virginia. You can contact an ATAC representative at 304-623-7030.
The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) is the primary agency responsible for investigating potential terrorist related activities and suspicious incidents. The West Virginia JTTF can be reached at 304-625-9768.
