Overview

With the devastating attacks of September 11, 2001, the era of the modern terrorist reached American soil and forever changed the way that the United States deals with national security. In response, the Department of Homeland Security was established in the most dramatic reorganization of the U.S. government in more than half a century. The department's mission is to ensure the safety and security of the United States. In 2005, this newly formed department faced its first major test with Hurricane Katrina, the massive storm that pummeled New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. The Department of Homeland Security traces the history of the efforts to maintain national security in the United States and explains how one of the government's newest and most crucial departments is organized.
