The TABSS vehicle will allow us to help DHS adopt a strong, future-facing strategy and field capability against the aggregated homeland security and law enforcement mission.” Since the creation of DHS, Booz Allen has worked side by side with the agency to implement integrated, collaborative strategies that contribute to the safety and security of the United States.
