Pascrell Cites DHS Report On Implementing 9/11 Commission Recommendations As Reality Check On Progress Made, Work Remaining

U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-8), an original member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, cited today's report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, "Implementing 9/11 Commission Recommendations," as a reality check for the nation.

"Today's report gives us an assessment of what we all have done to adapt to life in the "post-9/11 world" in the almost 10 years since the terrorist attacks, and what work remains to be done to help better ensure our safety," said Pascrell. "The report states the importance of homeland security efforts being integrated with state and local law enforcement, which speaks directly to the bipartisan push I have led with Congressman Dave Reichert for past three weeks to restore federal funding to the COPS Office. If we are to be truly committed to homeland security, we must provide adequate resources to the police who walk the streets of our communities. As the report also states, 'Homeland security starts with hometown security.'"
