Commander's Vision and Intent

VISION: JTF North is a responsive, credible and trusted partner-in-support to the nation’s law enforcement agencies and in support of interagency synchronization within the U.S. Northern Command area of responsibility. JTF North continually adapts to meet the challenges of an ever-changing strategic and operational environment.

COMMANDER'S INTENT:

Purpose: To deter and prevent transnational threats to the homeland. We will do this by acting in support of the law enforcement agencies and in support of interagency synchronization. We must remain mindful that we are not in the lead for these activities, nor do we seek credit. We will act in accordance with the directives and the intent of the Commander, U.S. Northern Command, and in compliance with federal, state, and local laws, and Department of Defense policy.

Objectives: We will fulfill our purpose by accomplishing six interrelated objectives:

Operate and employ military capabilities that enhance and enable our nation’s law enforcement agencies.

Support interagency synchronization contributing to unity of effort and cooperation in order to secure and defend the homeland.

Share information and intelligence in accordance with law and policy and properly protect the proprietary and sensitive nature of the information as appropriate to enhance the situational awareness of the agencies we support.

Engage nations in the U.S. Northern Command area of responsibility as part of the U.S. Northern Command Theater Security Cooperation program contributing to hemispheric security.

Communicate clearly and effectively with all audiences to build and sustain relationships and create advocates for our mission.

Continue to adapt the command to an ever-changing strategic and operational environment.

End state: JTF North contributes to the success of the agencies we support and readily adapts to meet future challenges and threats to the homeland.
