Intelligence & Counter-Terrorism Unit
The Intelligence & Counter-Terrorism Unit serves as a support element for the different patrol divisions, which serve as the front-line of the Amtrak Police Department and seeks to increase the safety and security of our passengers and personnel by increasing the department’s insight into ongoing threats and potential terrorist acts by the analysis and dissemination of intelligence information.
The Amtrak Intelligence team (AIT) consists of Detectives and Analysts assigned to the Special Operations Division that enhance the security and safety of the Amtrak system, passengers and personnel through the real-time exchange of intelligence, investigative, and threat information across the country. Two full-time Intelligence Analysts with Top Secret security clearances support these operations and routinely receive classified briefings from federal agencies as well as prepare reports and conduct analysis on threats, special events, and VIP movements. The AIT also consists of dedicated Detectives assigned to FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF’s) and or Intelligence Fusion Centers.
