From the statement of David Paulison: "I am truly honored to kick off the festivities tonight as we celebrate the five year anniversary of the Center for Homeland Defense and Security. FEMA is proud of our efforts to develop and conduct programs for the nation's homeland security leaders. Together with the Naval Postgraduate School, we demonstrate very day that federal agencies, working together in a true partnership, can provide opportunities and add value to our nation's homeland security system. The Center's achievements over the past few years are truly amazing. In 2002 homeland security as a professional and academic discipline was just getting started. This was a first of its kind effort to develop from scratch the curriculum and materials that would provide our leaders with the training and skills they would need to help protect the American people. Since January 2003, 179 local, state and federal officials have gone through the master's degree program and the Center is now offering the Executive Leadership Program. This effort is already bearing fruit as the alumni's research, interagency and intergovernmental networking and on-going leadership the Center is helping to shape the evolution of homeland security."
