"Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today highlighted the Department's 2010 accomplishments in an address to employees - emphasizing the major steps the Department has taken this year to enhance America's capabilities to guard against terrorism; secure the nation's borders; engage in smart enforcement of our immigration laws; safeguard and secure cyberspace; prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters; and unify and mature the Department. 'Over the past year, our efforts have been guided by one simple yet powerful idea: homeland security begins with hometown security,' said Secretary Napolitano.
