BENS DC Metro Visit to FBI Threat Screening Center (TSC) September 30

September 30, 2021 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm EDT

There are few dates throughout our nation’s history that cause us to view the world, and our lives, in terms of “before” and “after.” Twenty years ago, the events of September 11, 2001, marked a turning point for our nation and the impact on our National Security. Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the President and Congress mandated that federal executive departments and agencies share terrorism information with those in the counterterrorism community responsible for protecting the homeland. In 2003, the Threat Screening Center was created to fulfill that mandate. The Threat Screening Center (formerly known as Terrorist Screening Center) located in Vienna, VA, a multi-agency center administered by the FBI, is the U.S. Government’s consolidated counterterrorism watchlisting component and is responsible for the management and operation of the Terrorist Screening Database, commonly known as “the watchlist.” As we commemorate the 20th Anniversary, we invite you to join a BENS visit to the FBI Threat Screening Center for a general exposure, awareness of their mission and a TSC Executive leadership briefing. The visit will begin at 10:00 a.m. and we will ask that all participants should plan to arrive individually at TSC at 9:30 a.m. The visit will conclude at 1:00 p.m. At the conclusion of the visit, we invite you to join us for lunch and a visitation debrief.
