Homeland Security marks 15 Year Anniversary

in World News by

Celebrating 15 Years of Keeping America Safe:
Fifteen years ago, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) became a Cabinet-level department to coordinate and oversee a national strategy to prevent terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the United States.

Created after September 11, 2001, the move integrated 22 different federal departments and agencies, and unified efforts to secure the nation. DHS has helped transform the way America has secured their nation over the last ten years, making their efforts more agile, proactive, and coordinated.

And a decade after the creation of a Cabinet-level agency bearing that name, homeland security has come to mean much more. It means the coordinated work of hundreds of thousands of dedicated and skilled professionals, and more than ever, of the American public: our businesses and families, communities and faith-based groups. We are safer and more secure than ever before, and DHS stands ready to confront our future challenges.
