Tell DHS the Security Issues that Most Concern You the Most

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) would like to hear from you about the homeland security issues that concern you and your community.

DHS is in the process of completing a major strategic review of the Department’s programs and priorities, and will deliver its finished product, the 2018 Quadrennial Homeland Security Review, to Congress in December 2017.  

As part of the review, DHS is inviting members of the private sector to participate in the online “My DHS Idea” campaign. 

My DHS Idea Campaign

These are some of the important missions staff of DHS performs every day:


• Border security

• Immigration enforcement

• Trade enforcement and facilitation

• Drug interdiction

• Disaster preparedness and response, and

• Cyber security

What homeland security issues do you care about? 

What areas should DHS prioritize? 

What are the most pressing risks facing your community and the nation as a whole? 

Using the IdeaScale platform, you can:

  • Post your own ideas to address the homeland security challenges that are important to you and your community
  • Comment on other people’s ideas, and
  • Vote on the issues and approaches you think are the most important for DHS to consider

This interactive format allows everyone on the site to see the issues that are most important to other participants, and which ideas generate the most interest and support. 

The Department’s Office of Policy staff will moderate and contribute to discussions on an occasional basis incorporating key ideas into the strategy review process as appropriate.
