In addition to inspecting convention security in Cleveland last Friday and Philadelphia later this week, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson receives daily intelligence and operational briefings from U.S. Secret Service Director Joe Clancy and his team, who are on the ground in Cleveland. DHS personnel apprise the Secretary of the latest developments concerning the security situation at both conventions. The Department of Homeland Security is dedicating nearly 3,000 personnel, from the U.S. Secret Service, TSA, ICE HSI, CBP, the National Protection and Programs Directorate, the U.S. Coast Guard, and other DHS components and offices, who are working alongside other federal, state, and local partners.
