MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) - Rose State College plans to create a Homeland Security Institute.

Rose State announced plans for the institute on Monday, saying it’s the first educational program of its kind in Oklahoma. It will provide education and training in domestic and foreign terrorism prevention, emergency command procedures and management of natural and man-made disasters.

The program has four components: counterterrorism, cyber security, emergency management, and utility security. The counterterrorism educational phase will begin in January 2015 with the launching of four online classes that will be part of the college’s criminal justice program.

David Cid, former executive director of the Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism and a retired FBI agent, will to lead the new institute. The memorial institute moved to Rose State earlier this year after losing federal funding.
