Maritime Security Program
The Maritime Security Program at the Center for Civil-Military Relations (CCMR), headquartered at the Naval Postgraduate School has provided exceptional programs to hundreds of civilian officials and military officers from many countries over the last ten years. Using a faculty of academicians, retired military, coast guard, law enforcement, and civilian agency personnel, CCMR delivers programming that strikes the right balance between the theoretical and the practical.
Specific objectives include:
- Help participants think through the challenges of preventing and responding to maritime security threats and terrorism with democratic tools at a strategic level
- Multi-dimensional, innovative solutions to maritime security threats
- Integrate classroom exercises to extend learning
- Emphasize interagency (inter-entity) and multi-national approaches
CCMR addresses tough questions about national, regional and global Maritime Security
