Week 9 1.Describe the creation of the Department of Homeland Security. The September 11th Terrorist Attacks were the most devastating attacks of all time. Following the attacks many laws were created. Legislation was introduced in 2002 to establish a Department of Homeland Security. It was quickly established and given agency-level status. All existing agencies and organizationsinvolved in disaster response were put under the DHS. 2. Compare and Contrast the homeland security concerns of the federal, state, and local levels At the federal level, the DHS is a massive agency that has over 200,000 employees and a budget of reaching into the tens of millions. The organization is complex and its function of terrorism risk management is nationwide. At the state level, homeland security organization is much smaller. Its role is highly dependent on the nature of the state’s unique terrorism risk as well as the role that the state government played in emergency management prior to 9/11. At the local level, its concerns are on first responders, law enforcement and on emergency planning and management.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
