Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security Announces Reorganization


Homeland Security reorganization better focuses on the current threat picture

Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland SecurityNashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security is reorganizing its Homeland Security office to better deal with the evolving threat, particularly that of homegrown violent extremists. Restructuring began on November 1st, 2015, and will be complete on February 1st, 2016.

The office of Homeland Security will now be comprised of three bureaus: analytics, operations, and preparedness.

The reorganization will allow Homeland Security to continually monitor any threat, and adjust the department’s security posture accordingly and more effectively.

Assistant Commissioner and Homeland Security Advisor David Purkey said, “Changing threat indicators across our nation and state require us to adapt our structure and focus to protect the public. This reorganization model prepares us at the state level to more fully support our local, state, and federal partners while extending our preparedness services to public entities as well.”

The mission of the Office of Homeland Security is to protect the citizens and critical infrastructure of Tennessee from the threat of terrorism.

The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security’s (www.TN.Gov/safety) mission is to serve, secure, and protect the people of Tennessee.
