Former FBI Director Louis Freeh (LL.M. '84) and New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly (LL.M. '74) are among the 16 members of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) sworn in by U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on June 5.

"I congratulate the members of the Homeland Security Advisory Council on their appointments," Napolitano said in a statement. "As we work to fulfill the Department's core mission of securing the country against the many threats it faces, the unique insights and expertise of this diverse council will be a valuable resource."

Composed of experts from state, local, and tribal governments, emergency, and first responder communities, academia, and the private sector, HSAC provides recommendations and advice directly to the Secretary of Homeland Security.
