1 min read

The Department of Homeland Security created a committee to help respond to all forms of violence. The Office for Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention will coordinate, follow through and use the agency's prevention activities including information sharing and law enforcement briefings to protect communities from potential threats, DHS said Friday.

"This new office supports the direction the President outlined in the National Strategy for Counterterrorism and will enable DHS to more effectively coordinate our resources and capabilities to better serve the needs of states and local communities," said Kevin McAleenan, acting secretary of DHS and 2019 Wash100 Award winner.

McAleenan added that the office will address local and state needs as well as focus on societal efforts.
