2012 Annual Report On Wisconsin Homeland Security

Wisconsin’s Homeland Security Advisor and 13 member Council is responsible for advising the governor, coordinating state and local prevention and response efforts, and producing periodic reports on the state of homeland security in Wisconsin. The Council works with local, state, federal, and tribal agencies, non-governmental organizations, and private industry to improve citizen and community preparedness. The governor is responsible for appointing Council members. Additionally, a member of the governor’s staff is invited to attend and participate at each meeting.

In 2011, the Council changed its meeting structure from monthly to quarterly and extended the meeting time to four hours. This longer meeting structure allows the Council to discuss homeland security issues in greater depth. Additionally, the Council created work groups that meet in between regular meetings and focus on strategic goals. Often, officials from non-member agencies and non-governmental organizations attend to gather information about homeland security issues. Additionally, the Council provides an official report to the governor each year during one of its public meetings.

Please click on the document link below to open and read a copy of the new Wisconsin Homeland Security Strategy. This document has been developed and is being released by the Wisconsin Homeland Security Council.  This document contains information on the Homeland Security Priorities in the State of Wisconsin.  Each priority has been broken into more tangible goals for which progress can be monitored. Each goal has then been assigned to “a goal champion” which is a state agency which will take on the responsibility of helping make progress on each goal, and thus the overarching priority, and the Strategy as a whole.
