Welcome from the Director

The Office of Homeland Security has the distinct honor and duty of providing leadership in the protection of the citizens of Mississippi from terrorist attacks, both foreign and domestic. Homeland Security is also responsible for providing timely advice to the Governor and cabinet in order to efficiently and immediately address potential terrorist threats or acts.

The Office of Homeland Security realizes that the residents of Mississippi are an integral part in the protection of the state, and encourage all citizens to be informed, vigilant, and prepared. This website provides extensive information on what to do if a terrorist act should occur, and what to look for in potentially suspicious scenarios. I recommend that you browse through the available information in order to get a better understanding of how Homeland Security is working to provide leadership necessary to protect the state and what you, as a part of the citizenry, can do to aid in the collective effort.​
