September 2011

This paper from INSA’s Homeland Security Intelligence Council examines the crucial role of homeland security intelligence and its incorporation into our country’s intelligence architecture. The Council’s analysis provides a definition of homeland security intelligence; discusses the nature of the Homeland Security Intelligence Enterprise including groups from the federal, state, local tribal, private and grassroots levels and ideas for how to better connect them; and emphasizes the principle that homeland security intelligence practitioners have a dual mission to ensure security and to protect civil liberties.
