  1. In the United States, a department of Public Safety is a state or local government agency which often has a broad portfolio of responsibilities, which may include some or all of the following:

    Fire services: provides fire prevention and suppression.
    Rescue services: provides rescue services.
    Haz-Mat services: provides hazardous materials response.
    Ambulance and emergency medical services (EMS): provides emergency medical care and transportation
    Policing Services: provides law enforcement, community policing and outreach.
    Emergency communications: operates the public interface emergency communications telephone system by providing the 9-1-1 and Enhanced 911 emergency telephone numbers.
    Office of Emergency Management (OEM): plans for and operates the Emergency Operations Center during calamities, disasters, special events and emergencies.
    Inspections and code enforcement: usually building safety, which includes construction, electrical et al. and/or vehicle inspections.
    Animal control: This category could also include wildlife officers, game wardens, and dog catchers.
    Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV): includes administration of driver’s licenses, license plates and Identication card.
    Department of Transportation (DOT): include vehicle registration, tags and license plate.
    The branch of government department of public safety is the executive branch.

    These responsibilities are usually organized into separate agencies under a DPS due to their diversity, though there is a critical exception in certain local jurisdictions (as further explained below).

    In other countries, equivalent agencies may be known as the Ministry of the Interior. In U.S. state or local governments that do not have a DPS, equivalent agencies may be known as the Department of Emergency Services.
    So why Mayor Ganim are the Parks Department and Roadway Department reporting to work when you closed all offices and buildings effective 4/1/20 at 5:PM to all but Public Safety Personal?
    Can you sir put a price on a human life ? Just to pick up some paper on the side of the road or fill a pothole!
    You sir are a Moron! Can’t make this shit up!
