Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Under Secretary of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) and Chief Intelligence Officer David J. Glawe gave remarks at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) annual meeting in Chicago on Oct. 26, 2019. Under Secretary Glawe also met with the IACP’s State and Provincial Division (S&P) and Private Sector Liaison Section.
Under Secretary Glawe discussed I&A priorities and opportunities to enhance the sharing of intelligence with state, local, and private sector partners. Throughout all the engagements, he emphasized DHS’s efforts to advance early threat identification.
“Our priority within the DHS Intelligence Enterprise is to provide actionable intelligence to support state and local law enforcement, as well as our private sector partners, on a variety of threats to the homeland – including terrorism and targeted violence, transnational organized crime, cyber, and foreign influence, among other threats,” said Under Secretary Glawe.
To further these partnerships and the sharing of threat information, I&A has realigned the Department’s Intelligence Enterprise to a Mission Center model which more effectively addresses the dynamic threat environment impacting the United States. It also increases the number of deployed intelligence professionals working side-by-side with state and local law enforcement across the country. These intelligence professionals facilitate the flow of information and work to identify threat actors to keep the nation safe, secure, and resilient by working closely with state and major urban area fusion centers.
Under Secretary Glawe was accompanied by Craig Price, General Secretory for IACP S&P and Cabinet Secretary of the South Dakota Department of Public Safety; and George Anderson, General Chair of the IACP Private Sector Liaison Section.
