Guest Contributor: Homeland Security Disciplines and the Cycle of Preparedness
Earlier this month I published a post about the disciplines of homeland security. The lists of disciplines were based on the work of Dr. Bill Pelfrey, a scholar and staff member at the Naval Postgraduate School’s Center for Homeland Defense and Security. Dr. Pelfrey has published a number of articles in his distinguished career in academia and has served in a number of administrative and teaching positions at prestigious institutions, including as Professor and Department Chair of the Department of Justice and Risk Administration at Virginia Commonwealth University (Dr. Pelfrey’s son, Dr. William Pelfrey Jr. also teaches at VCU). Dr. Pelfrey Sr. is also the author of The Evolution of Criminology.
After writing the July 2nd blog I contacted Dr. Pelfrey and asked permission to publish his article in its entirety, which he has graciously granted. The work from which I drew the disciplines of homeland security is thus attached.
Thank you Dr. Pelfrey!
