about Department of Homeland Security in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

In the days immediately following the terrorist attacks against the United States of America on September 11, 2001, the nation was witness to a quick succession of official acts taken by the federal government to help prevent further such catastrophes. These acts included a presidential proclamation of a state of national emergency, the presidential authorization of the Use of Military Force bill, and the speedy establishment of 94 antiterrorism task forces throughout the country, one for each United States attorney office. Probably the most striking and far-reaching action taken by the administration of President George W. Bush in the wake of the events of September 11, 2001, was the presidential announcement to Congress of the creation of the Office of Homeland Security, with ex-governor of Pennsylvania Tom Ridge as its director.
