Law Enforcement Resources

The Law Enforcement Resources page is designed to assist state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement in their efforts to keep our communities safe, secure, and resilient.

DHS State and Local Law Enforcement Resource Catalog

The DHS State and Local Law Enforcement Resource Catalog highlights DHS resources available to state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement.  This document summarizes and provides links to training, publications, guidance, alerts, newsletters, programs, and services available to non-Federal law enforcement from across the Department.  The Resource Catalog is not exhaustive and will be maintained as a living document.

2014 Law Enforcement Conferences, Gatherings, and Meetings

The OSLLE developed a list of law enforcement conferences, gatherings, and meetings in 2014.  These events often offer training opportunities and the ability to share best practices with law enforcement from across the country.  This document is not exhaustive and will be maintained as a living document, updated on a monthly basis.

Homeland Security Information Network

The Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) is a national secure and trusted web-based portal for information sharing and collaboration between federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, private sector, and international partners engaged in the homeland security mission.  HSIN - Law Enforcement was developed specifically for the law enforcement community to share Law Enforcement Sensitive Information and to securely collaborate with partners across geographic and jurisdictional boundaries on topics such as weapons smuggling, narcotics trafficking, and gang mitigation. 

Federal Law Enforcement Training Center:  State and Local Training

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) provides tuition-free and low cost training to state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement.  Programs are conducted across the United States and are normally hosted by a local law enforcement agency.  Training is also conducted at FLETC facilities located in Glynco (Brunswick), GA; Artesia, NM; Charleston, SC; and Cheltenham, MD.

Homeland Security Grant Program

The Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System (NPS) by supporting the building, sustainment, and delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal (NPG) of a secure and resilient Nation.  The building, sustainment, and delivery of these core capabilities are not exclusive to any single level of government, organization, or community, but rather, require the combined effort of the whole community.  The HSGP supports core capabilities across the five mission areas of Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery based on allowable costs.  HSGP is comprised of three interconnected grant programs:  State Homeland Security Program (SHSP), Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI), and Operation Stonegarden (OPSG).  Together, these grant programs fund a range of preparedness activities, including planning, organization, equipment purchase, training, exercises, and management, and administration.
