Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism: John Miller

The Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Counterterrorism oversees activities to both prevent and plan for a swift and efficient response in the event of a future terror attack in New York City. These activities include investigations into potential terrorist activity, the collection of detailed intelligence, and the development of complex and effective strategies, prior to a potential terrorist attack. As part of the mandate, the bureau identifies and acquires technology used to enable detection and response in the event of a catastrophe.

The Deputy Commissioner oversees both the Intelligence Bureau, which is responsible for intelligence collection and analysis; and the NYPD's Counterterrorism Bureau operations, including the partnership with the FBI/NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force, the first and largest of its kind in the nation.

New York City is home to more than 8 million people and hosts over 58 million visitors from all over the world annually. The Intelligence and Counterterrorism Bureaus provide some of the most highly trained and best equipped officers to patrol the city, collect and analyze data, and collaborate with partner agencies. Overseen by the Office of the Deputy Commissioner, Intelligence and Counterterrorism, these bureaus work closely together, coordinating and sharing information in order to keep all of New York City safe.
