Law Enforcement Partnerships

Our law enforcement partners at the federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, and campus levels are the backbone of our Nation’s domestic defense against terrorist attacks. They are this country’s first line of detection and prevention and are an important partner in ensuring public safety in every American community. It is essential that DHS law enforcement partners have the most current information on the tactics, behaviors, and other indicators that could point to terrorist activity.

The Department continues to work to improve how it communicates and shares information and resources out of Washington, D.C., enhance the kind of federal resources and support it provides through grants, training, and other means, and strengthen its analytic capabilities to achieve better awareness of new and emerging threats.
