The Office for State and Local Law Enforcement

The Office for State and Local Law Enforcement (OSLLE) provides the Department with primary coordination, liaison, and advocacy for state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement agencies.

On the recommendation of the 9/11 Commission, Congress created the Office for State and Local Law Enforcement (OSLLE) in 2007 for two key purposes:

  1. Lead the coordination of DHS-wide policies related to state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement’s role in preventing, preparing for, protecting against, and responding to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other man-made disaster within the United States; and
  2. Serve as the primary liaison between DHS and non-Federal law enforcement agencies across the country.

Responsibilities

Law Enforcement Resources

The OSLLE has assembled a list of resources that can assist state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement in their efforts to keep our communities safe, secure, and resilient. The DHS State and Local Law Enforcement Resource Catalog and other helpful tools can be found in the Law Enforcement Resources section.
