From Ana Lalley – Police Chief, Elgin Police Department

The Center for Homeland Defense & Security (CHDS) Masters Program was one of the best learning experiences I have had.  The level of expertise that each instructor brings to the learning environment is unmatched.  I entered the program with a Masters’s Degree from a university, but my experience at CHDS continued to challenge and inspire me as an individual and leader in my organization.  It was refreshing to hear so many different perspectives from talented people in my cohort and I truly enjoyed the experience.  If your mindset is a ‘can-do’ attitude when you arrive at CHDS, when you leave CHDS your mindset will be ‘can-do’ and ‘will-do’!”
