United States of America FlagHomeland Security

Homeland Security refers to our national effort to prevent terrorism through coordinated planning, intelligence gathering, data analysis and subsequent action.

Terrorism is a deliberate use of violence against civilians for political or religious means. Each day, terrorists are working to obtain chemical biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive weapons. However, local, state and federal agencies are working to strengthen our nation’s security.

Whenever possible we aim to stop terrorism before it occurs. All Americans should learn about potential threats to better prepare themselves to react during an attack.
