In New Jersey, each county has a Counterterrorism Coordinator (CTC), based out of the Prosecutor’s Office. These CTCs serve as the critical link between New Jersey’s municipalities, counties, the State, and the federal field offices. Each CTC works in conjunction with one another and the State to report and investigate suspicious activity occurring.
This week, Monmouth County’s CTC Guy McCormick sits down with NJOHSP Intelligence Planner Jeff Elgrim to discuss the role of the CTCs in New Jersey and how the relationship between NJOHSP and the CTCs serves the residents of New Jersey.
