Homeland Security or Police State?


Following the historic attacks of 9-11, the Frey Institute considered the policy implications of increased security nationally and locally as result of legislation and other policy changes in the wake of those events. Speakers at the event included sitting members of Congress, academics, those in the private security sector and state and local government leaders. Throughout the two-day event, views were expressed about how to strike a delicate balance between security and liberty in the U.S. constitutional republic. Florida Attorney General Charlie Crist gave the evening keynote address and spoke to the question of security in the state of Florida. Congressman Frey concluded the event with summary remarks on the historic event, the Institute's first symposium in its series.
