FBI Brings In Extra Agents

Jeff Killeen, a Special Agent with the FBI says the preparation for the G20 Summit is the most organized event he has been involved in in his 25 years of law enforcement. He says local, state and federal agencies are all working together to make this a good, successful and safe event.

He could not give a specific number as to how many FBI agents would be here for the summit, but he said there would be more than usual, including investigative, intelligence and analytical officials.

He said the FBI's responsibility is to prevent anything that is against federal law and to assist other law enforcement.

Killeen says because of the region's geography, there are some challenges to providing security, but because the leaders will be meeting at limited places, in some ways it will be easier.
