"The Naval Postgraduate School's (NPS) Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) through 2016 continued its mission of innovation, critical thinking and policy development through leading-edge education and research. The Center's gold-standard programs are cultivating homeland security leaders across the nation and offering real-world solutions to the agencies our students and alumni represent. The past year saw CHDS graduates drive positive change in such areas as the National Terrorism Advisory System, anti-radicalization in prisons, active shooters, natural disasters and academia, among others. […] The Center remains positioned to assist homeland security professionals and thought leaders facing emerging issues. In addition to its educational programs, the Center provides resources for professionals in the field. The Homeland Security Digital Library (HSDL), the nation's largest repository of vetted homeland security documents, added more than 1,000 individual accounts and more than 20,000 account holders have access to its more than 200,000 documents. The Center remains committed to continued work with the U.S. Navy, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and all of our state and local partners to contribute towards a safer United States in 2017."
