|Watching the Detectives: Oversight of Post 9/11 Law Enforcement Counterterrorism Operations|
Thursday, March 8, 2012 6:30 pm-8:30 pm
Law enforcement agencies today are charged not only with solving crimes, but with preventing the next terrorist attack. To this end, they have been given broad new powers to collect intelligence. In this evolving landscape, robust oversight is more important than ever to ensure effective intelligence operations that adhere to our constitutional values and do not stray beyond their authorized purpose. Please join us for a discussion with Glenn Fine, former Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Justice from 2000 to 2011, who will talk about his experience overseeing the FBI and the lessons learned.
