Homeland Security

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.

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.
