Message from our Director

     On September 11, 2001 the world in which we live changed.  As the terrorist attack on our homeland unfolded,  it became clear that many innocent people would perish.   These people came from many walks of life, many races, many religions and many creeds.  They were a diverse group of people that well represented the beliefs and core values on which our nation was founded……..Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.. 


      In the years after September 11, 2001 it has become an obvious necessity for ALL law enforcement officials to take an equally proactive approach in combating the existing terrorist and criminal threat.   


      The men and women of law enforcement must receive the training necessary to be well prepared for the challenges of recognizing and removing these dangerous criminals from our society while protecting innocent citizens.   Civilian law enforcement plays a pivotal role in combating the continual threat that has become an every day reality on our nations highways.
