From Christopher Pope – Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, State of New Hampshire

There is no one “greatest benefit,” rather it is the sum of many parts, including:

  • Networking with CHDS Alumni who have assisted me many times in the past year with a range of issues from Real ID to special events security;
  • Accessing many of the theses on various subjects in support of projects in my home state (e.g. fusion center papers);
  • Sharing specific research materials from CHDS Digital Library with co-workers;
  • Putting leadership lessons from classmates to work;
  • And I hope some day to see co-workers accepted to the program to further build our network.
