EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State University is teaching the nation’s police how to work together to sniff out and stop terrorism – a task that has taken on special significance with the emergence of dozens of terrorism-focused “fusion centers". The centers, supported by the Department of Homeland Security, are meant to link the intelligence-gathering efforts of local, state and federal authorities.
Supported by $7.5 million in Homeland Security grants, Carter and his staff began providing intelligence training in mid-2005 and, to date, have trained more than 2,000 officers from 1,200 agencies in 43 states and three countries. As the nation’s sole provider of the training, Carter’s team instructs everyone from county sheriffs to city and tribal police to university public safety officers.
The Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center offers a multitude of training capabilities to suit any need. Our mission is to provide support, facilities, instruction and airspace to Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Coalition and Emergency Responders to meet the mission requirements of Combatant Commanders and Civil Authorities.
