Dr. Robert Griffin was appointed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) deputy under secretary.

“Bob Griffin brings a unique mix of more than two decades of experience in emergency response and emergency management leadership, and academic grounding,” said Dr. Reginald Brothers, DHS S&T under secretary. “It is that experience and insight that I rely on, and why I chose him as my deputy.”

With more than 20 years of experience in local government and first responder communities, Griffin has been serving as acting deputy under secretary since May, and was officially appointed as deputy under secretary on Oct. 5. Prior to this appointment, Griffin served as the director of S&T’s First Responders Group and led efforts to strengthen the first response community’s ability to protect the homeland and respond to disasters.

Prior to his federal service, Griffin served as the first director of the Arlington County (Virginia) Office of Emergency Management, where he developed a cross-functional department consisting of emergency management, law enforcement, fire/rescue, public health and emergency communications personnel. He managed the integration of the county’s emergency management and emergency communications functions into a single department.

He is a member of the Federal Senior Executive Service and is on the faculty of Georgetown University’s Public Policy Institute, where he teaches graduate-level courses in state and local governance.
