Domestic Security Revisited

As the domestic threat landscape continues to evolve, so too must our national ability to manage and interdict these threats. Homegrown violent extremism and the use of social media to mobilize individuals are just two examples of the dynamic and ever-shifting nature of this landscape.

In Domestic Security Revisited, BENS examines the progress law enforcement and intelligence agencies have made in managing these challenges, and offers pragmatic steps for building a more unified and collaborative approach to domestic security. The report is the product of a year­ long engagement effort, during which BENS members met with leaders from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Fusion Center Association, among others.

This report builds off BENS' 2015 report, Domestic Security: Confronting a Changing Threat to Ensure Public Safety and Civil Liberties, which has been cited as a thoughtful and pragmatic analysis of how to build an effective, principled domestic security enterprise.
