"Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the Attorney General ordered a broader review of Justice Department guidelines concerning national security and criminal matters. The purposes of that review were to bring investigative practice into line with current counterterrorism priorities, change from a reactive orientation to an orientation emphasizing early intervention and prevention of terrorist acts before they occur, promote initiative at the FBI field office level in investigative activities, strengthen centralized access to and use of investigative information and intelligence, and improve interagency coordination. The guidelines and strategy implemented to that end is outlined in the following fact sheet and NSI Guidelines."
