Equipping the Homeland Security Enterprise with the intelligence and information needed to keep the Homeland safe, secure, and resilient.
Led by the Office of Intelligence & Analysis, the Department of Homeland Security integrates intelligence into operations across all DHS components, our partners in state and local government, and the private sector to identify, mitigate and respond to threats.
The Office of Intelligence & Analysis (I&A) exercises leadership and authority over intelligence policy and programs throughout the Department in partnership with the heads of Components.
Mission Centers serve as the Department’s center of gravity for intelligence-driven integration of analysis, technology, skills, and functions to counter the most critical threats facing the Homeland today.
In addition to five mission centers, I&A is equipped with three other intelligence elements: Current and Emerging Threats Center (CETC), Field Operations Division (FOD) and Homeland Identities, Targeting and Exploitation Center (HITEC).
Fusion Centers are state-owned and operated centers that serve as focal points in states and major urban areas for the receipt, analysis, gathering and sharing of threat-related information between State, Local, Tribal and Territorial (SLTT), federal and private sector partners.
