HSM 201 Week 1 Discussion 1 Department of Homeland Security Core Missions
Department of Homeland Security Core Missions. 1st Post Due by Day 3. The Department of Homeland Security’s Fiscal Years 2014-2018 Strategic Plan identifies the five core missions of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Considering the security environment of today, prioritize the five core missions of the Department of Homeland Security and justify your prioritization. Would your prioritization be different immediately following 9/11 than it is today? Support your response with your readings from the Department of Homeland Security’s Fiscal Years 2014-2018 Strategic Plan.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources. Use APA format to cite your sources in text as well as at the end of your post in the list of references.
Read your classmates’ posts. By Day 7, respond to at least two classmates. For your responses, review the Cross- Agency Priority Goals section (pp. 7-8) supported by the Department of Homeland Security. Select one of the Cross-Agency Priority Goals, and either support or challenge the prioritization of your classmates. Your justification for a higher prioritization for your priority mission should be based on what you perceive to be the most significant future threat to America. This prioritization may result in a transfer of funds from one mission or organization to another, much like what happened following the World Trade Center bombings or after Hurricane Katrina. Make sure you support your position with scholarly or official government sources.
