n the weeks following September 11, 2001, federal, state and local law enforcement officials investigated those responsible for the September 11 attacks during which nearly 3,000 people died. They assessed the United States's vulnerability to future acts of terrorism. Investigations showed the suspects of the crime to be of Middle Eastern origin. In the wake of the September 11 attacks, US officials responded to the fears of air travelers by reinforcing security.

Another group included 40 sex offenders, who induced crimes such as rape, paedophilia and sexual assaults. Their mean age varied from 41 for the paedophiles down to 28 for the other assaults. The last group of 20 had committed property offences involving theft and burglary, their mean age was 29. The procedure involved the use of the ‘Blame Attribution Inventory’, this measured the offender’s type of offence and attribution of blame in three aspects: internal/external, mental element and guilt. The results exposed the sex offenders as feeling the most guilt with a mean score of 12.7, and the violent criminals followed with a score of 8.1.

This new system provides a consistent response to several different situations for federal, state and local government agencies.
Since September 11, 2001, the United States has had many changes to its security and its focus on who is a threat to it. The government created a department called homeland security and its whole purpose is to protect, prevent, and recover from terroristic or any type of threats America is given. As people may have noticed, airports and other things involving the risks of other people’s lives have gotten more difficult to get through. They have introduced new methods to point out if there is any kind of threat whether it be bombs or weapons used to put people in danger.
