See the photos from the Full Scale "Operation Safe Haven" EXERCISE in Teton County on Sept. 16 and 17.
The scenario revolved around a large-scale special event taking place in the Town of Jackson (fictitious 2014 World Rodeo at Fairgrounds) that was expected to bring in more than 50,000 spectators.
Prior to the event, local law enforcement received information on a person of interest who, acting alone, was taking steps to disrupt and cause panic at the event by using stolen radioactive material from commonly found items used in the construction and engineering industries. This EXERCISE was in cooperation with many local, state, and federal partners.
Office of Inspector General audit on Homeland Security program - status update
The Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (WOHS) was audited on Fiscal Year 2010 - 2014 grants by the Office of Inspector General in the summer of 2013. The following information is the current result of the audit. This audit is an open audit – meaning that WOHS is still working with subgrantees, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) to supply any additional information needed to resolve questions that arose during the audit. We anticipate the recommendations to be resolved in Sept. of 2014. For the full status update click here.
