Homeland Security Presidential Directive 1: Organization and Operation of the Homeland Security Council
United States. Office of the Federal Register
This is the first in a series of Homeland Security Presidential Directives [HSPD] that shall record and communicate presidential decisions about the homeland security policies of the United States. The specific purpose of HSPD 1 is to set up and define the organization and operation of the Homeland Security Council. "Securing Americans from terrorist threats or attacks is a critical national security function. It requires extensive coordination across a broad spectrum of Federal, State, and local agencies to reduce the potential for terrorist attacks and to mitigate damage should such an attack occur. The Homeland Security Council (HSC) shall ensure coordination of all homeland security-related activities among executive departments and agencies and promote the effective development and implementation of all homeland security policies."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
