Post – 9/11: The Evolution of American Law Enforcement

9/11 was a devastating event that affected us all. Law enforcement took heroic action on that day to try to save lives – and in the days, months, and years after to prevent future attacks.

Since 9/11 law enforcement has come together – in partnership with other agencies, the private sector, and the general public – to help make us all safer. In response to the threats raised by 9/11, law enforcement has seen changes in the areas of intelligence collection and analysis, interagency partnerships and information sharing, technology and innovation, training and preparation, and community engagement.
