Story from Christopher Cleary
Commanding Officer, 4th Precinct, Nassau County Police Department
"In the months after the 9/11 attacks, I attended dozens of funerals and memorial services for neighbors, friends and fellow first responders which turned homeland security from a job into a passion for me."
About. Since 9/11, we have heard amazing stories from CHDS alumni, students, faculty and staff about why they are motivated to serve and committed to protecting the country. The Homeland Security Audio Archive preserves these stories while inspiring the next generation of public safety leaders and serving as a reminder of the sacrifice and dedication that local, state, tribal and federal homeland security officials make on a daily basis.
