Welcome from the Director

As Executive Director of the Mississippi Office of Homeland Security, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Mississippi’s Homeland Security website. Homeland Security begins with home town security! It is important for the citizens in our communities to recognize when they see something suspicious and report it to their local law enforcement authorities immediately. 

This office will continue to work diligently with the emergency response agencies, and the citizens of this state to educate and strengthen our capabilities in order to provide a safer environment for everyone.
