John Kelly, acting inspector general at the Department of Homeland Security, discusses the semiannual report, and why it’s important for DHS to always adjust to new threats.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General, has released a report to Congress on the issues the agency is facing. John Kelly, acting inspector general at the Department of Homeland Security, says that the department needs to constantly improve due to the nature of their mission.

 

“The work at DHS is very dynamic. This is not an agency that you come in the morning and realize what is going on, things change on a constant basis. “The department needs to keep on adjusting for new threats and they have to keep in front of the bad things that people may be doing to enter the country.”

 

Kelly said that the many different missions within DHS impact the office’s approach to informing Congress.

 

It does affect how we are going to do our work… it also makes us need to focus on the important issues as opposed to a cookie cutter approach where we are doing the same types of job with CBP, ICE, the Coast Guard, we actually have to tailor our work to address the most pressing issues associated with what they are doing as opposed to doing the same thing at multiple locations.
