9/11 forever changed how the NYPD views its mission and the world around us. As soon as the Bloomberg administration took office, we quickly reorganized our operations to address the threat of terrorism. We could not defer this responsibility to others.

We immediately increased the number of detectives assigned to the Joint Terrorist Task Force with the FBI. On 9/11 just 17 detectives served on the city’s JTTF. We increased that number to more than 120. Since then, the JTTF has functioned as our chief conduit for receiving intelligence developed overseas about terrorist plots related to New York.
