FBI Counterproliferation Center
FBI Counterproliferation Center: Keeping weapons of mass destruction and other critical technologies out of the wrong hands.
The spread of WMD and other technologies is a significant threat to U.S. national security. That’s why the FBI established its Counterproliferation Center (CPC) in 2011. A component of our National Security Branch, the CPC combines the counterproliferation expertise of our Counterintelligence Division, WMD Directorate, and Directorate of Intelligence. All FBI counterproliferation investigations are managed by the CPC, which leverages law enforcement and intelligence techniques to prevent the acquisition of WMD and critical controlled technologies. Collaborative efforts with our federal partners and the private sector play an important role in our efforts.
