Terrorist Interdiction Program [TIP] Law and Legal Definition

Terrorist Interdiction Program (TIP) is a multi-pronged border security program designed to assist selected vulnerable countries in stopping terrorists from crossing their boarders or using their territory as transit points or staging areas of attack. The program is supervised by the U.S. Department of state.

The Terrorist Interdiction Program seeks to constrain terrorist mobility globally by helping countries at risk from terrorist activity enhance their border security capabilities. The TIP provides participating countries with a computerized watch listing system known as Personal Identification Secure Comparison and Evaluation System (PISCES).
