Department of Homeland Security

QUESTION 1.

The second and third core missions of the Department of Homeland Security are closely aligned and many of the DHS initiatives though administered by one agency support the efforts of another.

Identify a DHS initiative or program, such as the secure border fence or the Trusted Traveler Program, that demonstrates support between the agencies of DHS. What role do the various agencies play in fulfilling this core mission of DHS? How does this program enhance the security of the homeland?

QUESTION 2.

Over the years, one of the key criticisms of many of the agencies consolidated into the Department of Homeland Security was that they were “stove pipes” and they did not share information, or help each other out. Information held by one agency was not shared with another. One of the findings following the September 11, 2001 attack was intelligence agencies did not share information with law enforcement. In the Introduction to Part 3 of the primary text, William Bratton (2012) states, “In today’s increasingly networked world, organizations must collaborate across traditional boundaries or run the risk of irrelevance and failure. No one agency can do it alone” (p. 191).

Identify one of the key issues with information sharing and collaboration identified in Part 3 of the primary text. What is the deficiency? How has the deficiency been addressed? Did the formation of the Department of Homeland Security resolve the information flow?
