Local Threat—Local Response
The Homegrown Violent Extremist Landscape in New York City


Rebecca Ulam Weiner
Director of Intelligence Analysis,
Intelligence Division, New York City Police Department

Dear YLC Members,

I hope you will all be able to join us on Wednesday, June 5th where we will hear from Rebecca Weiner, Director of Intelligence Analysis of the NYPD Intelligence Division. Director Weiner will provide a comprehensive introduction to the work of the Intelligence Division of the NYPD and, in doing so, will address key issues, including: the homegrown violent extremist landscape in the Big Apple; the threats that these extremists pose; and the tactics that the local authorities—the NYPD specifically—have created to respond to these threats. Director Weiner will also address questions such as how the counterterrorism model has changed since 9/11 and how New York can prepare itself for future attacks.

Rebecca Weiner joined the Intelligence Division in 2006 as an analyst focusing on homegrown radicalization and extremism. In her current capacity as Director of Intelligence, Weiner manages the analytic and cyber units of the Intelligence Division. She is one of the principal advisors to the Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence on counterterrorism matters and share responsibility for Division-wide policy development and program management. In March 2010, Director Weiner became Legal Counsel to the Intelligence Division’s Intelligence Analysis Unit, providing legal guidance on the authorization and direction of terrorism investigations. She also served as the Team Leader for the Middle East and North Africa, overseeing intelligence collection and analysis related to threats associated with those regions.

I very much hope you will be able to join us.
