From Ron Leavell – Homeland Security and Special Operations Section Commander, Seattle Police Department

I can recommend without hesitation the Center for Homeland Defense and Security at NPS for the professional seeking a premier homeland security education. The quality of the instructional and support staffs, coupled with the caliber of the select few chosen to enroll at NPS, creates a unique melding of the academic and the practitioner to gain insights and understanding into the new discipline of homeland security not available anywhere else.
