Episode 25: One-on-One with Thomas Brzozowski

On Friday, May 6, partners from across the mid-Atlantic region gathered together for the inaugural Regional Domestic Terrorism Conference in New Brunswick, New Jersey, to discuss how law enforcement and homeland security professionals may counter the current threat of domestic terrorism. This event hosted by our office, the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, in coordination with the New Jersey Regional Intelligence Academy, provided a forum for various organizations from various states to report on the terrorist threat that exists in the United States and in their jurisdictions.

In Episode 25, Thomas E. Brzozowski of the U.S. Department of Justice joins Intelligence Analyst Jenna Raymond to explore the connections between hate crimes and domestic terrorism, particularly from a prosecutorial standpoint.
