Canadian Exchange Officer Completes Homeland Security Program at Naval Postgraduate School

MONTEREY, Calif. – 14603 Colin Murray (RMC 1984), Exchange Officer for Defense Research and Development Canada, completed the Executive Leaders Program (ELP) at the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) on August 23, 2019.

Mr. Murray is currently serving as Canada’s first embedded scientist within the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as a Senior Advisor to the Science and Technology Directorate. This new binational cooperation serves to build greater collaboration between our countries and strengthen our mutual security posture.

During the 10-month online and in-residence program, Mr. Murray collaborated with homeland security officials from across the nation on current policy, strategy and organizational design challenges. The ELP program consists of four modules beginning with foundational aspects of homeland security and the threats, proceeding to describe the nature of the threats, legal and cultural aspects of preventing and preparing for the threats, the collaborations necessary to effectively manage the information sharing, threat recognition, protection measures, and plans in preparation for action.

Thirty-one CHDS students participated in the graduation ceremony. They represent a snapshot of the homeland security enterprise, including professionals from the fields of emergency management, education, law enforcement, fire service, homeland security, public health, and city/county government.

Located at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), CHDS is the nation’s homeland security educator. The Center is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Preparedness Directorate, within the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). For information, visit www.chds.us.

ABOUT NPS: The mission of the Naval Postgraduate School is to provide unique advanced education and research programs in order to increase the combat effectiveness of the U.S. and Allied armed forces as well as enhance the security of the United States. For information, visit www.nps.edu.
