This week, The Florida Holocaust Museum is offering our Law Enforcement and Society: Lessons of the Holocaust (LEAS) program to participants of National Homeland Security Conference, along with the Tampa Police Department and the St Pete Police Department. Today, the Tampa Police Department visited the Museum and attend our LEAS program. These sessions will be held at the Museum through the duration of week.
The National Homeland Security Conference 2016 attendees typically include Homeland Security professionals, Emergency Managers and planners, public safety representatives from every response discipline, local, State, and Federal government leaders from the largest metropolitan areas in the 50 states and U.S. territories, as well as subject matter experts from the private sector. The National Homeland Security Conference provides a direct bridge to connect and share best practices among those charged with keeping our Nation safe.
