The TLO primary function is to help line staff identify terrorism related situations and share intelligence related to terrorist activity.
2. TLOs serve as the point-of-contact within their agencies for questions and information regarding terrorism, and terrorism-related tips and leads.
3. In most cases the TLO position is a collateral duty. TLOs shall not independently investigate tips or leads unless directed to do so by the proper authorities i.e. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), Fusion Center, etc., and stay within the responsibilities of their assigned duties.
4. A TLO is to have a working relationship with the local Regional Terrorism Threat Assessment Center (RTTAC), designated Intelligence Center and JTTF, to help facilitate the movement of terror related information to and from field personnel.
5. A TLO shall disseminate terrorism-related information and intelligence to personnel within their agencies’ in an efficient and lawful manner. TLOs are responsible for verifying that all personnel with whom they share terrorism-related information have a valid need- and right-to-know the information.
6. TLO s are responsible for educating personnel within their agencies’ regarding the procedure(s) for submitting tips and leads to the proper investigative authorities. For purposes of efficiency, it is not ideal for TLOs to function as the collection point for tips and leads.
7. TLOs are encouraged to pursue advanced level Homeland Security training courses as recommended and provided by their respective RTTAC.
8. The TLO should be flexible to fulfill other expectations and/or functions that may be determined by each individual RTTAC

• Describe the structure, organization, functions, and effectiveness of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center.
• Evaluate the history of the failures and successes in past efforts to integrate the U.S. intelligence community with the law enforcement community.
• Propose some specific reasons that the IC should integrate LE better into its planning and execution. Address sharing information equally, appropriate limitations on sharing, and the speed with which information is shared. These will be shared by the mayor with the IC officials in the meeting.
• The Mayor also wants IC assistance in targeting a drug/criminal gang that is active in the city (You may pick one that is actually active in your city, or select an actual gang known to be in U.S. cities). Provide insight to the Mayor on the capabilities and limitations of IC information, and what he might expect from the IC.
