As a cabinet department of the US federal government, the United States Department of homeland security is responsible for public safety, closely comparable to what is called in other countries as interior or home ministries. Among its functions and responsibilities are anti-terrorism, immigration and customs, cyber security and border security. With close to 24000 employees, homeland security is the third largest cabinet department after that of defense and veteran affairs with its policies being coordinated from the white house by the homeland security council.
