The Governor's Office of Homeland Security formed within the Executive Department in July 2003 (Executive Order 01.01.2003.18). The Office coordinates and directs State homeland security efforts; advises the Governor on such issues; and continually assesses Maryland's readiness and ability to prepare for, prevent, and respond to disasters and emergencies, including terrorist attacks.
To avoid duplication of effort and resources, the Office coordinates efforts to secure and allocate federal funds for State and local homeland security. Moreover, the Office works with the Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council of Maryland, directed by the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, and the Maryland Coordination and Analysis Center, a collaborative effort of federal, State and local agencies. The Office further serves as State liaison to the White House Office of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
