The authors highlight common concerns shared by law enforcement and public health: early identification of an outbreak, whether outbreak is naturally occurring or intentional, and protection of the public. The handbook highlights components of both fields and how they interact and complement each other; discusses investigational procedures and methodologies for a response to a biological threat; identifies challenges and solutions for improved information sharing (p. 55-60); and provides templates that can be replicated or customized.
