Robert J. Miller Homeland Security Education Center (HEC)

The Homeland Security Education Center (HEC) houses the Justice Studies and Fire Science Technology programs, Suburban Law Enforcement Academy (SLEA) and the COD Police Department.

The HEC includes forensics and cybercrime labs, an Internet crime investigation lab, an ambulance simulator, a mock courtroom/auditorium, a simulation hazmat/smoke room and the first non-military municipal 4-D immersive training lab.

The HEC features a life-size street scene with fire truck bays, ambulance simulator and working fire hydrants— and it’s the only one of its kind in the entire nation. This state-of-the-art facility is quickly adding to COD’s reputation as a national homeland security powerhouse.

Homeland Security Training Center (HTC)

The Homeland Security Training Center (HTC) expands first responder instruction with advanced firearms training, interactive shoot/don’t shoot simulation and weapons cleaning/ repair training.

Included  in this facility is a 50-yard, 25-position indoor firing range that provides first responders a unique indoor facility for training purposes. The indoor range is safe and lead free, which will preserve the environment.

Together, the HEC and HTC will propel HSTI to national prominence, combining our expert faculty with the best facilities and equipment in the nation.
