Brazos Valley Homeland Security department’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders with a whole community approach. The regional goal is to work together for building, sustaining, and improving our capability to prepare for, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism, technological events, and natural disasters. The department coordinates homeland security activities among all agencies and jurisdictions within the region, as well as public and private-sector stakeholders. It also serves as the liaison and point of contact with the Texas Department of Homeland Security.
