Major Roles

It also is critical that the lead coordinating council member from the coalition and the U.S. Attorney's Office (USAO) form a cooperative and supportive relationship. The coalition should complement, not replace, the victim services that a USAO victim/witness unit provides. As with the Oklahoma City bombing trials, CCTV sites may be designated as extensions of the federal judge's courtroom, making it necessary for federal as well as local law enforcement agencies to be involved in the community coalition's security planning efforts.
