Law enforcement can begin to close the gaps in homeland security by sharing ideas, training, and planning. This article presents descriptions of preparations in Montgomery County, Maryland, where the department has made its academy, its instructors, and its equipment available to all allied agencies in the Washington metropolitan areas, which consists of Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. 1 note
