The Homeland Security Act brought together 22 federal agencies to serve a myriad of functions. The department took control of such entities as the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Customs Service, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In order to fulfill the department’s mission, the department was divided into five teams, referred to as directorates. These directorates include the following: Border and Transportation Security, Emergency Preparedness and Response, Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection, Science and Technology, and Management.
