Tuesday, Acting Special Agent in Charge (A/SAC) Lauren C. Anderson met a group of 18 European international relations and security graduate students visiting the United States as guests of the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program.

Following the introduction by Program Officer Anatoli Samochornov, A/SAC Anderson gave a brief summary of the international scope of the FBI under circumstances relating to counterterrorism and criminal cases and the collaboration between various countries’ national intelligence services, based on her own extensive background and international cases she investigated. Discussing common security threats and teamwork between the U.S. and our European allies, Anderson provided insight on the FBI and our global reach in fighting international crimes and terrorism.

“These young people are the future leaders of their countries. The opportunity to engage in dialogue with them, which emphasized the critical importance of collaboration and sharing, will hopefully foster a better understanding between, and among our nations. Our countries can assist one another in prevention and solving future crimes all over the world,” said Acting Special Agent in Charge Lauren Anderson.
