The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness (NJOHSP) helps to direct prevention, detection, protection, response, and recovery planning, not only at the state level, but also at the regional and national levels with our varied partners.  In addition to coordinating efforts with other state agencies, NJOHSP plays a critical role in helping to shape state and inter-state homeland security policy and practices.  NJOHSP is led by Director Chris Rodriguez and comprised of three Divisions: the Division of Intelligence, the Division of Policy and Planning, and the Division of Administration, with ten bureaus within the Divisions.


The New Jersey Cybersecurity & Communications Integration Cell (NJCCIC) is the State’s one-stop shop for cybersecurity information sharing, threat analysis, and incident reporting. Located at the Regional Operations Intelligence Center, the NJCCIC brings together analysts and engineers to promote statewide awareness of local cyber threats and widespread adoption of cybersecurity best practices. The NJCCIC engages in close partnership with federal homeland security and law enforcement authorities, as well as sector-specific information sharing and analysis centers.
