Federal Security Administrator

In the Oklahoma City bombing trials, the CCTV sites were designated as extensions of the federal judge's courtroom, thereby giving the U.S. Marshals Service, as the custodial agency, the statutory responsibility of providing protection to the people at the sites. Therefore, federal as well as local law enforcement agencies should be an integral part of the community coalition's security planning efforts.

Limited Timeframe

With limited planning time, federal agencies will most likely welcome an opportunity to coordinate efforts with a victim service project for the time that victims move between the debriefing area, which may be on federal property, and the CCTV facilities. If the debriefing area is not on federal land, local law enforcement agencies should be included in planning and coordination.
