The central theme of this thesis is how local law enforcement (LE) can integrate counterterrorism (CT) into its traditional mission. The basis of this research is that local LE is well positioned to be significant contributors and can use its existing strengths in a CT role to enhance homeland security (HS). In the 13 years since September 11, 2001, it is unknown to what extent CT has been fully embraced by local LE. This question is not easy to answer, as it is not easily quantifiable; this level of LE comprises nearly 18,000 individual agencies. This thesis asserts that doing nothing is unacceptable and argues that integration is an important part of securing the homeland. This thesis proposes the development of a conceptual prescriptive model known as L.E.A.D, leadership, education and training, actively gather intelligence and detect terrorists. L.E.A.D asserts that HS starts with hometown security, which begins by individual local LE agencies leading the way toward the integration of CT into their existing missions.
