All InfraGard participants are committed to the proposition that a robust exchange of information about threats to and actual attacks on these critical infrastructures is an important element for successful infrastructure protection efforts. This chapter is governed by our local bylaws located here.
The goal of InfraGard is to enable the flow of information so that the owners and operators of infrastructure assets can better protect themselves and so that the United States government can better discharge its law enforcement and national security responsibilities.
The director of the FBI recently visited Chicago, to meet with staff and local partners. Robert Holley, Special Agent in Charge of the Chicago Field office hosted a visit from the Director of the FBI, James Comey. Director Comey met with Chicago Field office staff, hosted a press conference with the regions top law enforcement representatives, and met with other strategic partners, including representatives of the the FBI Citizens Academy, Infragard, and Retired Agents Association. Comey met privately with the Citizens Academy and Retired Agents association, as well as the Chicago Infragard Board. Comey thanked representatives of the Chicago Infragard Board for their efforts, and also sought insight and feedback on our chapters efforts.
