    "This handbook has been developed to facilitate the use of resources and to maximize communication and interaction among law enforcement and public health officials in an effort to minimize potential barriers to communication and information sharing during a bioterrorism incident. The purpose of this handbook is to: Provide an overview of criminal and epidemiological investigational procedures and methodologies for a response to a bioterrorism incident, Enhance the appreciation and understanding of each discipline's expertise by all parties, and Identify challenges to sharing information and provide potential solutions that may be adapted to meet the needs of the various agencies and jurisdictions throughout the United States. Law enforcement and public health officials are encouraged to read the entire handbook and not limit their review to just their respective sections. It is important to take the time to understand the different goals and needs of the other organization before an event occurs. Doing so will enable law enforcement and public health personnel to effectively respond in a coordinated manner during a bioterrorism incident. While both disciplines have varying objectives and protocols, both public health and law enforcement ultimately share two common concerns: Early identification of the criminal event or public health emergency, and Protecting public health and public safety " - p. 7
