Partnerships

In this complex, globalized, post 9/11-world, our operational partnerships have never been more important to our efforts to protect your communities.

people2.jpgToday, we work with colleagues at every level of government—local, state, federal, even international—across the law enforcement, intelligence, and first responder communities. We lead and take part in multi-agency task forces, intelligence groups and fusion centers, and public and private sector alliances. A number of our partners literally sit shoulder-to-shoulder with us in FBI space, just as we share our agents and analysts with other agencies. We work closely on joint investigations—sometimes taking the lead, sometimes taking a back seat to others, sometimes contributing equally among many agencies. Our work with our colleagues, in fact, is so intertwined today that it’s often nearly impossible to separate the contributions of one agency—and one nation—from the next.

In Sacramento, our major partnerships include:

  • The Sacramento Joint Terrorism Task Force brings together representatives of 40 local, state, and federal agencies to run down any and all terrorism leads, develop and investigate cases, provide support for special events, and proactively identify threats that may impact the area and the nation. We also have satellite Joint Terrorism Task Forces working out of Fresno and Bakersfield.
  • people1.jpgThe Sacramento Field Intelligence Group, a team of FBI agents and analysts who provide a full range of intelligence support on terrorism and criminal threats, combines with the multi-agency Regional Terrorism Threat Assessment Center to form the Central California Intelligence Center, which supports law enforcement and intelligence partners in 34 counties across the state.
  • We participate in the FBI Counterintelligence Strategic Partnerships Program, which builds relationships between private industry, academia, government agencies, the FBI, and its counterintelligence community partners to identify and protect projects of great importance to the U.S. government.
  • To battle cyber crime, we have a number of key partnerships:
    • Our Cyber Crime Task Forces in Sacramento and Fresno bring together local, state, and federal experts to combat computer intrusions, viruses, and other cyber threats.
    • We are one of more than 30 government agencies that participate in the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force, which focuses on the spread of computer/high- technology crimes, telecommunications fraud, crimes against children, identity thefts, and the recovery/analysis of digital evidence.
    • Our Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Team (S.A.F.E.) is a multi-agency task force that combats crimes involving the sexual exploitation of children. One of the most successful preventative measures has been posing as teenagers in online undercover operations to catch predators before they strike.
    • The Sacramento InfraGard Chapter is the local arm a national information-sharing alliance between private industry, academia, and government focused on protecting critical national infrastructures in both the online and offline worlds.
  • We also lead or take part in several major partnerships targeting violent crime:
    • Our Sacramento Violent Crimes Task Force combines detectives from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and our special agents to pool expertise and resources in targeting street gangs and violent criminals of all kinds.
    • Our Violent Fugitive Gang and Sex Predator Safe Streets Task Force in Sacramento works to round up violent fugitives, including gang members and sexual predators.
    • We lead the Solano County Violent Gang Safe Streets Task Force in our Fairfield resident agency and the Kern County Violent Crime Task Force in our Bakersfield resident agency.
    • In 2006, we joined the California Department of Justice’s Division of Gambling Control in creating the Sacramento Indian Gaming Safe Trails Task Force. The task force, which now includes a dozen task force officers, investigates illegal gambling and related activities in 32 Indian casinos in Northern California.
