Abstract
History has shown that homeland security is a learning process and an evolution, whereby threats are identified and strategies and policies are developed and implemented. Those strategies and policies are occasionally tested in the real world and refined to adapt to the new threat landscape. The modern homeland security apparatus is characterized by overlapping and interconnecting legal and jurisdictional responsibilities that intertwine response agencies and require a whole-of-government response. A reorganization of the federal government in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, created a plethora of new policies and procedures. This restructuring produced overlapping interests and responsibilities that required cross-disciplines, jurisdictions, and authorities to manage threats appropriately. To adapt, the federal government developed several strategies and frameworks for organizing these disparate departments and agencies. This thesis provides a comprehensive understanding of the Maritime Operational Threat Response (MOTR) Plan and how it successfully connects federal organizations to adapt and deal with threats in the unique environment of the maritime domain. Also, it identifies several elements that make the MOTR Plan successful, so the plan may be exported to other areas such as federal, state, or local governments and international partners interested in interagency collaboration.
