Mollie Halpern: If you have knowledge of suspected terrorism or criminal activity, the FBI wants to hear from you.
Stephen Woolery: This is our kind of grass roots effort to be accessible to the general public.
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern, and you’re listening to “FBI, This Week.” The FBI established the Internet tip line in the hours after the September 11 terror attacks. Now, nearly 10 years later, about 1,000 tips come into FBI Headquarters every day. The Virtual Threat and Analysis Center Unit works around the clock to manage and process those tips.

Woolery: We cannot afford to let one tip fall through the cracks, so we analyze every tip, we process it as quickly as we can, and we get it out to the appropriate FBI elements.
Halpern: Supervisory Special Agent Matthew Bertron says this is an essential function within the Bureau.
Matthew Bertron: Anything that we receive, we want to open it and start reading it within six minutes.
Halpern: To submit a tip, visit FBI.gov, click on the “Contact Us” tab, and then choose “Submit a Tip on Crime/Terrorism.”
