Homeland Security

   Report Suspicous Activity


The North Carolina Department of Public Safety is charged with protecting the state from a multitude of threats and hazards, to include natural and manmade impacts to our state critical infrastructure and terrorism events. Through our department’s operating divisions and agencies, on a daily basis we support local jurisdictions in responding to a variety of incidents and in the implementation of the state homeland security strategy.

As State Homeland Security Advisor, I have the great privilege in leading these efforts and partnering with the Deputy Homeland Security Advisor and department leadership to protect this great state.
This multi-faceted approach is implemented through collaboration with state and federal public safety, law enforcement, and intelligence agencies through our State Homeland Security Advisor Work Group:
1.    Provision of financial support to local and state partners for capability development; 
2.    Strategic and operational planning and training for critical infrastructure protection;
3.    Facilitation of intelligence gathering, analysis, and effective dissemination; and
4.    Development of all-hazards response capacity at the local and state level to address a variety of threats.
On behalf of the women and men of the Department of Public Safety, it is my honor to support the daily work to address homeland security threats and risks to our state.
