Homeland Security: Leveraging Army Expertise to Develop Joint-Interagency Doctrine [open pdf - 66KB]
"This paper concludes that the Department of Homeland Security should leverage the expertise of the military and the Army in particular in developing a joint-interagency doctrine for Homeland Security. The paper will first provide an overview of the context in which doctrine has an appropriate place in the process of developing policy and guidance regarding Homeland Security and the role of the military. The paper will make the case through examples and analysis that the military and the Army have developed an expertise in areas with direct application to Homeland Security. Further the paper will show how this expertise and the attendant doctrinal implications provide opportunities for efficient development of a joint- interagency doctrine for Homeland Security. By acknowledging that doctrine development in a Joint and/or Homeland Security environment is not a new idea the paper will discuss the subtlety in making the transition from existing DoD doctrine to developing a doctrinal template for the Department of Homeland Security to guide its interagency operations."
