SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The new Special Agent in Charge at the Salt Lake City FBI Bureau said his biggest concerns are cyber threats and counterintelligence.

Dennis Rice met with the media Friday and said the bureau saw an alarming spike in anti-government attacks across the nation last year.

“In all our terrorism cases, there is always an instance where someone saw something, they heard something but they didn’t come forward. So we continue to encourage people to step forward, share what you know, let us take some action on it, let us look into it. You are absolutely key to success in this,” Rice said.

The Salt Lake City bureau has been assisting the nationwide investigation of the January 6 insurrection at the U. S. Capitol.

Three Utahns have been arrested in that case and the Salt Lake City bureau also assisted in the arrests of eight others from Montana and Idaho.
