NDCAC EAB First Report to the Attorney General

The National Domestic Communications Assistance Center (NDCAC) was established by the Department of Justice (DOJ) as a national center for information sharing among members of the Federal, State, local, and tribal law enforcement community in part to assuage some of these challenges. An important aspect of the NDCAC is its Executive Advisory Board (EAB), a fifteen-member, State and local plus-one majority board composed of executive managers from across law enforcement. It is governed by the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) and provides advice and recommendations to the Attorney General (or his designee) and to the Director of the NDCAC. This first report outlines five significant challenges facing the law enforcement community (i.e., technical challenges associated with electronic surveillance, communications evidence, and technical location capabilities; resource challenges that are particularly acute at the State, local, and tribal level; and statutory challenges that are the result of laws not keeping pace with the profound evolution of communications services and devices) and provides the Attorney General insight into the NDCAC and its constituent programs.
