Citizen Corps News: DHS wants your opinion!
Now is your opportunity to help shape our nation's homeland security policies and priorities. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is conducting the first ever Quadrennial Homeland Security Review (QHSR) that will establish the strategic foundation for homeland security activities over the next four years.
Secretary Napolitano views the QHSR as an opportunity for unprecedented collaboration and partnership across the homeland security stakeholder community. Stakeholders have the opportunity to provide substantive input in two primary ways:
Secretary Napolitano began the outreach process by sending a letter (by e-mail) to over 100 associations on June 3, 2009. The letter explained the QHSR process and scope and requesting substantive input. Associations were asked to submit thoughts, positions, or ideas via e-mail to the Department by June 26, 2009.
Over the next three months, the Department will conduct a series of web-based, interactive dialogues around the key questions and topics in the review. Internal agencies, external partners-including federal agencies, state, local and tribal governments, first responders, business leaders, academics, and other policy experts-and the concerned public will be engaged.
To fulfill this vision, the Department has partnered with the National Academy of Public Administration to host three collaborative, online National Homeland Security Dialogue sessions:
