Homeland Security

An act of terrorism or act of violence is possible virtually anywhere. While the federal government works to prevent such things from happening, agencies throughout Midland County plan, train and equip themselves for responding to terrorism as they do for other events.

Public and private organizations from the Midland area meet on a regular basis to share information and discuss the latest homeland security issues. Federal, State and Local law enforcement agencies are in constant communication with each other, and with corporate and private security organizations. All are partners working together with the goal of keeping Midland County communities safe.

National Terrorism Advisory System

The National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) replaced the color-coded Homeland Security Advisory System. NTAS is designed to provide timely, detailed information to the public. NTAS Alerts are issued when credible information is available. These alerts include a clear statement that there is either an imminent threat or an elevated threat.
