Region B RHSOC
 

The Missouri Office of Homeland Security was established on September 26, 2001 with Missouri being the first state in the nation to create an Office of Homeland Security in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Local communities are focused and engaged in Missouri's homeland security program through the establishment of nine regional advisory groups, called Regional Homeland Security Oversight Committees (RHSOCs). RHSOCs fall under the governance structure of the Homeland Security Advisory Council.

Executive Order 05-20 was signed on July 21, 2005, moving the Missouri Office of Homeland Security to the Missouri Department of Public Safety.
