The Department of Homeland Security has outlined four ways that the department works to mitigate domestic terrorism.
DHS said Wednesday its office for community partnerships conducts briefings, exercises, workshops and training to educate and help communities fight domestic terror threats.
OCP’s Countering Violent Extremism grant program funds initiatives to address violent extremism at the grassroots level.
DHS’ office of intelligence and analysis provides intelligence to policymakers and local authorities on domestic terror trends, tactics and situations to aid response activities.
The DHS office for state and local law enforcement works with first responders across U.S. to prevent, prepare for, protect against and counter terrorist threats.
DHS also promotes public awareness on domestic terrorism through its information sharing architecture, which is comprised of the National Network of Fusion Centers; Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative; National Terrorism Advisory System; If You See Something, Say Something campaign; and the Homeland Security Information Network.
