Homeland Security: A Compendium of Public and Private Organizations' Policy Recommendations

Excerpt

Providing for the security of the U.S. homeland is a multidimensional and complex effort involving federal, state, and local governments. Since the September 11 terrorist attacks, the Bush Administration has taken numerous steps to improve the nation's safety, including the creation of a new Department of Homeland Security. This paper provides a compendium of past recommendations from various public and private organizations on how the new department might achieve the ambitious goals of the National Strategy for Homeland Security, the administration's definitive statement of its plans for enhanced homeland security.
