Dr. Griffin joined the Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate in August 2010. He serves as the Director of First Responder Programs and is a member of the Federal Senior Executive Service. Dr. Griffin comes to DHS after a twenty-year career in local government as a senior leader and first responder. Prior to his appointment Dr. Griffin served as the Director of Environmental Services for Arlington County Virginia. He managed a diverse portfolio of core governmental functions including roads and engineering, water and waste-water delivery and treatment, transportation, refuse and recycling, facilities construction and maintenance, fleet management, capital planning and construction, and a nationally recognized energy and environmental sustainability program. Earlier Dr. Griffin was appointed the first Director of the Arlington County 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. As the Director of Emergency Management, he managed the integration of the County's emergency management functions and emergency communications functions into a single department. Programs of note include construction of a state of the art emergency communications center and data analysis center, an integrated public notification system including outdoor warning systems, enhanced sheltering capabilities for people and pets, and a nationally recognized citizen outreach effort. While in Arlington Dr. Griffin organized and led relief efforts to Florida (2004), New Orleans (2005), and numerous regional and intra-state deployments. In 2006, Dr. Griffin was recognized by the Arlington Civic Federation with the President's Award. Prior to his time in Arlington, Dr. Griffin served as Assistant County Administrator and Chief of Fire and Rescue in Loudoun County, Virginia, where he led the County's fire, rescue, bomb squad, emergency communications, and emergency management functions. He ran the Loudoun emergency operations center during the response to the 9/11/2001 attack on the Pentagon and the anthrax attack on the Dulles Postal Facility. Previously, he was Executive Administrator of the Town of Tyngsborough and Town Administrator of Townsend, Massachusetts. He is a certified fire fighter and fire officer. Dr. Griffin earned a Doctor of Philosophy in public administration/public affairs from Virginia Tech as well as a Master's degree in public administration from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and a Bachelor of Science in political science from the same institution. Dr. Griffin's dissertation was a study of the characteristics of coordination in the homeland security network.
