Homeland Security

The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face.  This requires the dedication of more than 230,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cyber security analyst to chemical facility inspector.  Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear - keeping America safe.


Homeland Security’s Five Main Areas of Responsibility:

  1. Guarding against Terrorism
  2. Securing our Borders
  3. Enforcing our Immigration Laws
  4. Improving our Readiness for, Response to and Recovery from Disasters
  5. Maturing and Unifying the Department
