Berger, B. (n.d.). Before the Committee on Governmental Affairs United States Senate. Retrieved from

Excerpt: I am pleased to be here today on behalf of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. As you may know, the IACP is the world’s oldest and largest organization of law enforcement executives, founded in 1894, and with a current membership exceeding 19,000. At the outset, I would like to express my thanks to this committee for soliciting the views of the IACP on the structure of the proposed Department of Homeland Security and its relationship to the state and local law enforcement community. It is my belief that the ability of the Department of Homeland Security to work effectively with law enforcement agencies around the country is crucial to the ultimate success or failure of its mission of protecting the citizens and communities of this nation. There can be no doubt that cooperation, coordination and information sharing between federal agencies and their state and local counterparts is absolutely critical to our ability to prevent future terrorist attacks. For these reasons, the IACP does support the creation of a Department of Homeland Security. It is our belief that the proposed department, by uniting the numerous federal agencies that are tasked with protecting the safety of our nation into one organization, will significantly improve the ability of these agencies to share information and coordinate their activities with one another. However, a successful homeland security strategy cannot focus solely on the roles, capabilities, and needs of the federal agencies. It must also ensure that state and local law enforcement agencies are integral partners in its efforts.
