State Emergency Management Agency Information
Louisiana GOSHEPThe Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP); formally the Louisiana Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (LOHSEP), was created by the Civil Act of 1950. In 1976 GOHSEP via the Louisiana government reorganization, was moved to the Department of Public Safety (DPS). In 1990 GOHSEP was transferred again to the Military Department. In 2003 the Agency name was changed to the Louisiana Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, reflecting the additional responsibilities to the State and her citizens. In March of 2006 the Agency came under the Governor's Office and the name was changed to the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness to reflect this change.
