FBI, Chicago police work to foil terrorists

By Jeff Coen
The Chicago Tribune 
CHICAGO - Calling it a kind of community policing, the FBI's leader in Chicago said new relationships being forged between his agents and local police could provide the best chance of staving off a terror attack.

The most likely terror plot here would be carried out by a local, radical person who is not part of a massive global network, said Robert Grant, special agent in charge of the FBI office in Chicago. The first to notice the beginnings of such a plan could be a patrol officer who makes a traffic stop or sees something odd during a domestic disturbance.

"We need to be able to detect it before it happens, and we don't have the resources to be in every community," Grant said.
