Senior law enforcement officials and public safety leaders gathered in Universal City Tuesday for the 2015 International Intelligence Conference of Counter Terrorism Practitioners.

Among those on hand for the conference at the Universal Sheraton Hotel were FBI Director James Comey; Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck; and LAPD Deputy Chief Michael Downing, who heads the department’s Counter Terrorism and Special Operations Bureau.

The theme for the conference is “the ever-changing ‘threat environment’ both abroad and at home, and our collaborative response,” said LAPD Lt. Anita McKeown.

“The conference will provide the targeted audience of law enforcement, public safety executives, and intelligence leaders with a mixture of global and local practitioners’ perspectives on threats, strategies, analysis, integration, and the way forward,” McKeown said.

The conference continues through Thursday.
