Overview Edit

The Attorney General’s Organized Crime Council (AGOCC) is comprised of the Deputy Attorney General (Chair), the Assistant Attorney General, Criminal Division; the Chair of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee; and the heads of the following nine participating law enforcement agencies: FBI; Drug Enforcement Administration; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; ICE; U.S. Secret Service; Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation; United States Postal Inspection Service; U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Diplomatic Security; and the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of the Inspector General.

The Council provides a unified approach to combating international organized crime. It provides support in the form of information and intelligence to the member agencies that enhance efforts to identify, penetrate and dismantle the most dangerous organized crime groups through investigations and prosecutions. The creation of the International Organized Crime Targeting Committee and the Top International Criminal Organizations Target List (TICOT), directs investigators and prosecutors to concentrate their limited resources on those international organized crime groups that pose the greatest threat to the United States.
