Abstract

This Article aims to promote conceptual clarity about what role local officials ought to play as part of an overall intelligence strategy that conjoins elements of national and sub-national authority to practice “intelligence under law.” It emphasizes areas of comparative local strength as well as vulnerability, and suggests what a rightly conceived set of institutional arrangements ought to look like. Conceptual work of this sort is a necessary foundation for homegrown counter-terrorism to play a significant role in addressing homegrown terrorism.

Keywords: Homegrown Terrorism, Police and Counter-Terrorism, Domestic Intelligence, Federalism and National Security
