Draft Proposal for Cross-Agency Collaboration

For Milestone Three, you will prepare a proposal for cross-agency collaboration. Based on the investigative activities proposed in the previous milestone, determine what type of assistance the task force will require from outside agencies for this operation. Compare and contrast roles and responsibilities of different counterterrorism and law enforcement agencies responding to this particular case. Based on your analysis, which agencies are best situated to provide the type of assistance required and why? Explain what type of agreement will be needed to clarify the roles and responsibilities of the task force and the outside agencies selected

Collaboration. Counterterrorism activities almost always involve some form of cross-agency collaboration. Specify what activities the task force should undertake in order to incorporate assistance from outside agencies within the scope of the operation. In particular, you should:
A. Analyze the type of assistance the task force needs from outside agencies for this operation. For example, does the operation require emergency support, such as an evacuation plan in the event a weapon is deployed? Tactical support in locating or apprehending a suspect or suspects?
Intelligence support in observing suspect(s) or sharing information? Additional manpower or a loan of equipment? Note that these examples are only illustrative, and the actual collaboration needed will depend on the activities you have proposed.
B. Compare and contrast the roles and responsibilities of different counterterrorism agencies responding to this particular case. Based on your analysis, which agencies are best situated to provide the type of assistance needed?
C. Will any special agreements be needed to clarify the roles and responsibilities of the task force and outside agencies? For example, will a memoranda of understanding be needed to work with multi-agency groups like the joint terrorism task force or to secure foreign cooperation? Will agreements be needed with local law enforcement? Who will be responsible for securing these agreements and how?
