ABSTRACT

Fiscal Year 2008-2015 Law Enforcement Terrorism Prevention Activity Funding   [open pdf - 7MB]

"In 2016, counterterrorism remains the cornerstone of the Department of Homeland Security's mission and a critical component of the Department's grant programs. Recent events reinforce this priority. The global terrorist threat has evolved, requiring a new type of response. We have moved from a world of terrorist-directed attacks to a world that includes the threat of terrorist-inspired attacks - in which the terrorist may have never come face to face with a single member of a terrorist organization, but lives among us in the homeland and self-radicalizes, inspired by something on the Internet. As a result of this, there may be little or no notice in advance of an independent attacker attempting to strike. […] Law enforcement personnel in particular continue to face unique hazards, threats, and challenges as terrorism threats evolve. As a result, supporting cooperation and coordination of law enforcement efforts at all levels of government and communities remains critical. Through its suite of homeland security grants, DHS continues to support law enforcement terrorism prevention activities that build state and local law enforcement capabilities to prevent terrorist attacks and provide law enforcement and public safety communities with funds to support critical prevention activities. This report serves to communicate the Department of Homeland Security's commitment to supporting the law enforcement community, and to provide information and transparency on current and historical law enforcement terrorism prevention activity funding by program, as well as to provide project-level funding and descriptions by state and territory that highlight successes and opportunities for improvement in the administration of homeland security grants."
