The Investigations Bureau works closely with municipal, state and federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF)
OHSP investigators are assigned to, and work closely with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces based out of the FBI Newark and FBI Philadelphia field offices. OHSP investigators and intelligence analysts work closely with, and share important intelligence information with the FBI Newark Field Intelligence Group.
As part of OHSP’s County Initiative, OHSP investigators meet regularly with counterterrorism coordinators and other law enforcement and intelligence partners in each of the State’s 21 counties. This collaborative initiative ensures the sharing of information and investigative leads in order to discern potential terror activity in and around each part of the State.
