Homeland Security

RDSTF-Region-1Since the tragic events on Sept. 11, 2001, Americans have been forced to change the way we live and think about the security of our nation. Because of this reality, the agency's Homeland Security Unit provides a coordination point for all domestic security matters. Members serve on various local, state, and national homeland security committees, working groups, and task forces, including the Florida Regional Security Task Force. Concentration is placed on collecting intelligence on possible violations involving terrorism, use of weapons of mass destruction, illegal aliens and immigration issues, and conducting continual assessments on the safety and security of critical infrastructure and coastal access areas.
