The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security will soon move its operations to State Police headquarters in Harrisburg. Homeland Security was merged into the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency under the former Rendell administration, but a recent review determined that sharing the same building with state police would result in a better combination of intelligence gathering and sharing.
State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan will serve as the Governor’s Homeland Security Advisor.
Cory Angell with the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency says it makes sense to move the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security’s operations to State Police headquarters. He says it’s all about working with other state agencies more efficiently.
