Competency Addressed in This Discussion

  • Competency 1: Utilize police communication principles in community relations.

Introduction

Every organization has a mission and vision that drive its actions in conducting business. For the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the vision “to ensure a homeland that is safe, secure, and resilient against terrorism and other hazards.” To support this vision, the DHS has three concepts that form the basis for its strategic planâ??security, resilience, and customs and exchange. Within the DHS, there are four primary areas of responsibility:

  • Border security and transportation.
  • Emergency preparedness and response.
  • Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear countermeasures.
  • Intelligence analysis and infrastructure protection. (Department of Homeland Security, n.d.)
