Since the Department's creation, the goal is simple: one DHS, one enterprise, a shared vision, with integrated results-based operations.
The Federal Protective Service protects the homeland by managing risk and ensuring continuity for one of the most crucial elements of our national critical infrastructure, our nation’s Federal Facilities and their occupants.
DHS has awarded more than $36 billion based on risk to build and sustain targeted capabilities and strengthen state and local prevention efforts across the homeland security enterprise.
Protecting the country from ever-evolving, transnational threats requires a strengthened homeland security enterprise that shares information across traditional organizational boundaries.
