The Department of Homeland Security has launched the DHS YouTube Channel and announced the redesign of DHS.gov-steps to enhance the Department's web presence, increase transparency and provide accurate, up-to-date information to the public.
The YouTube Channel, found at www.youtube.com/ ushomelandsecurity, will allow DHS to use video to highlight events, speeches, public service announcements and other related content. DHS's emphasis on web 2.0 tools such as YouTube allows the Department to provide greater transparency and access to the public and our state, local, territorial, tribal, private sector, and international partners.

Janet Napolitano's five major responsibilities: counterterrorism, border security, enforcement of immigration laws, disaster preparedness and response and Department unification-and redesigned based on user input and search analysis to help visitors find relevant and timely information.
