Homeland Security Advisors Series: Part II - The Threat of Homegrown Violent Extremists with Director Chris Rodriguez (New Jersey)
7 days ago
Homeland security advisors (HSAs) are the sole representative for the Governor to the US Department of Homeland Security. Although there is no one model for the HSA position, all HSAs are responsible for implementing the state’s homeland security mission, receiving classified threat information, and acting on behalf of the Governor in the event of a disaster or emergency. Despite the critical role HSAs play, little is known about the position. The Governors Homeland Security Advisors Council (GHSAC) is conducting a podcast mini-series through the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness Intelligence. Unclassified. The first episode of the podcast will provide an overview of the role of the HSA, discuss how HSAs interact with their governors, and identify how states play a role in homeland security. The remaining six episodes of the podcast will focus on specific threats HSAs face in their jurisdictions. The goal of this podcast series is to provide more awareness about homeland security advisors and the state role in homeland security.
In the second episode of the miniseries, our very own Director Chris Rodriguez joins Director of Intelligence Rosemary Martorana to explore NJOHSP’s role in the security and preparedness of the state of New Jersey. Then, he provides insights as to how the terrorism landscape has evolved with the recent preponderance of homegrown violent extremists (HVEs).
