Former Secret Service agent to
discuss anti-terrorism efforts

Oct. 2 talk part of URI Forensic Science Seminar

KINGSTON, R.I. -- September 22, 2003 -- Former Secret Service Agent John Enright will discuss anti-terrorism efforts by the U.S. Attorney’s Anti-Terrorism Task Force. His talk is part of the University of Rhode Island’s Forensic Science Seminar Series.

Enright’s presentation, "Law Enforcement & Anti-Terrorism Efforts & the U.S. Task Force," will be held on Thursday, Oct. 2 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in Pastore Hall, Room 124 at the Kingston campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Enright will provide insight into the coordinated efforts of state and national agencies to ensure that information on suspects and terrorist links are not overlooked. Links between local street crime, financial crime and terrorist activities will also be discussed at the seminar.

Enright graduated from John Jay College of Criminal Justice with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. In 1975, he began his federal law enforcement career as a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms in New York City. In 1982, he transferred to the U.S. Secret Service, starting in the New York field office. He also held Secret Service posts with the Intelligence Division in Washington, D.C., the Presidential Protection Division and the Office of Protective Operations. Since 2002, Enright has been employed at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Rhode Island as director of counterterrorism and law enforcement initiatives.

The seminar series is a semester-long program offered by the URI Forensic Science Partnership.
