Georgia Police cooperate for homeland security

March 10, 2004

Albany -- Terrorism continues to be a danger, and Georgia police want to work together to safeguard you.

State law enforcement says communication and cooperation is the best way to fight terrorism. The Homeland Security officer for DeKalb County briefed South Georgia Police and Fire officials Wednesday. DeKalb County Homeland Security Officer Moses Ector said "We realize the enemy is very patient. And they know what Americans are like. We do become complacent. So it's our job in law enforcement to keep this issue in the forefront of the public mind."

Ector said his greatest fear is that terrorist attacks like the suicide bombings in Israel.

He taught the officers about information sharing services available for the first line defenders.
