Bolstering Public Safety

Protecting our communities is the most important responsibility of any government, and Senator Hassan is committed to working every day to ensure that all Granite Staters are safe and prepared for any emergency. 

During her time as Governor, Senator Hassan focused on a comprehensive approach to combat the heroin, fentanyl, and opioid crisis and help save lives, including supporting law enforcement and strengthening prevention, treatment, and recovery efforts. Then-Governor Hassan also helped put more state troopers on the road, developed active shooter training for state employees, supported federal border patrol agents in the North Country, and established the New Hampshire Cybersecurity Integration Center (NHCIC). 

As a member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Senator Hassan is working to build on those efforts and ensure that local and state public safety officials have the federal support they need to keep Granite Staters and all Americans safe. She is working to help curb the importation of deadly fentanyl and other dangerous drugs and support drug interdiction efforts. The Senator is also focused on addressing the threat of homegrown terrorism, enhancing border security, and strengthening cybersecurity in order to keep New Hampshire and America safe, secure, and free.
