DHS Has Limited Capabilities to Counter Illicit Unmanned Aircraft Systems

  • Author(s):
  • Office of Inspector General

DHS’ capability to counter illicit UAS activity remains limited. On November 8, 2018, the former DHS Secretary issued an internal memorandum calling for a uniform approach to DHS’ expansion of its C-UAS capability under the Preventing Emerging Threats Act. The Secretary assigned the Office of Strategy, Policy, and Plans (Office of Policy) as the Department’s lead over components with authorized C-UAS missions (United States Secret Service, United States Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, and Federal Protective Service). The Secretary instructed these components to not take any actions toward C-UAS expansion until the Office of Policy completed a uniform approach for doing so.
