"Will certainly keep this course in mind as I go about my business, esp. with Tribal Relations."
Angelyn Flowers presently serves as the Project Director for the National Legal Preparedness Training Program. This program is the result of a Cooperative Agreement between the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the University of the District of Columbia and is intended to increase the legal preparedness of state, tribal, territorial, and local governments.
Dr. Flowers is a Professor of Criminal Justice and the Graduate Program Director for the Homeland Security Program at the University of the District of Columbia. She has previously served as an Adjunct Professor in the graduate criminal justice program at Virginia Commonwealth University and a Visiting Professor at Howard University.
Dr. Flowers has over sixteen years' experience in law enforcement training, working with community-based organizations, and in homeland security efforts. Following 9/11, she was called upon to develop a training program for the District of Columbia's Protective Service Division on weapons of mass destruction. That program eventually grew to include personnel from the Federal Protective Division and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Agency (WMATA). Since 2009, Dr. Flowers has served on the Academic Advisory Board for Weapons of Mass Destruction and Terrorism, in the McGraw-Hill Contemporary Learning Series.
