Leadership Journal

Comment Policy

We welcome your comments on postings at the Department of Homeland Security Leadership Journal. Comments submitted to the Department of Homeland Security Journal will be reviewed before posting.

This is a moderated Journal, and the Department retains the discretion to determine which comments it will post and which it will not. We expect all contributors to be respectful. We will not post comments that contain personal attacks of any kind; refer to Federal Civil Service employees by name; contain offensive terms that target specific ethnic or racial groups, or vulgar language. We will not post comments that are spam, are clearly off topic or that promote services or products.

We will make our best effort to promptly post those comments that are consistent with the Comment Policy, but given the need to manage federal resources, moderating and posting of comments will occur only during regular business hours, Monday through Friday. Comments submitted outside of business hours will be read and posted as quickly as possible. To protect your own privacy and the privacy of others, please do not include phone numbers or email addresses in the body of your comment.

For the benefit of robust discussion, we ask that comments remain on-topic. Department leadership will discuss other topics in the future.
