Strategy for Homeland Defense and Defense Support of Civil Authorities [February 2013]
United States. Department of Defense
"Defending U.S. territory and the people of the United States is the highest priority of the Department of Defense (DoD), and providing appropriate defense support of civil authorities (DSCA) is one of the Department's primary missions. This 'Strategy for Homeland Defense and Defense Support of Civil Authorities' orients the Department towards an increasingly complex strategic environment. It emphasizes innovative approaches, greater integration, deepening of external partnerships, and increased effectiveness and efficiencies in DoD's homeland activities. It applies the vital capabilities of the Total Force - in the Active and Reserve Components - to make the nation more secure and resilient. Finally, the Strategy guides future decisions on homeland defense and civil support issues consistent with the 'Defense Strategic Guidance' and the 'Quadrennial Defense Review' (QDR)."
