Bratton to continue controversial anti-terror program

Written By kom nampuldu on Senin, 23 Maret 2015 | 18.18

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has agreed to continue a controversial — and costly — program that places detectives in cities around the globe to collect counterterrorism data, sources said.

"When we came on board, it was re-evaluated for the purposes of determining, 'Is this a valuable use of our resources?' Well, it is," one senior-level official said. "This is the kind of program that you don't need until you need it. And when you do, it's worth its weight in gold."

The International Liaison Program — launched by Bratton's predecessor, Ray Kelly, after 9/11 — assigns detectives to 11 posts around the world, including France, Israel, Germany and England.

The program has recently provided information about several terrorist events, including the Jan. 7 Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, in which 11 were killed.

An ILP detective in Canada was also able to provide prompt details to the NYPD about two ISIS-inspired attacks in Quebec and Ontario in October, the official noted.

And last week, a detective assigned to the program was dispatched to Tunisia in the immediate aftermath of an attack that killed 21 tourists at a museum.

The program's costs, which exceed $1 million annually, have largely been underwritten by a private charitable group, the Police Foundation.
