Homeland Security Partnership Council established
In October 2012, the Obama Administration established the White House Homeland Security Partnership Council. The Council was established through an Executive Order released October 26.
The purpose of the order is to increase the Federal Government’s ability to develop local partnerships in the United States to support homeland security priorities. This collaboration enables the Federal Government and its partners to use resources more efficiently, and also help partners address homeland security priorities.
The Council is intended to foster partnerships between government, nongovernmental, and law enforcement agencies, as well as other private sector and community-based organizations. The Chair of the Council will lead a steering committee made up of representative from a variety of government agencies, including the Departments of State, Defense, Treasury, and Justice.
