Course Description:
CJ 333 Security Administration: This intermediate course examines the selection, and organization and administration of contemporary security programs in business, government and industry. Emphasizes both private and government protection of assets, personnel and facilities. Focuses on best practices that security managers can put to immediate use. Provides strategic planning guidance for risk assessment and management, and the coordination of security planning with institutional stakeholders. Prerequisite CJ 233 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
 

The instructor's overarching approach to education is to emphasize the broadening of intellect as a strategy for developing problem solving and critical thinking skills.  It is essential to integrate the knowledge, skills, and abilities developed in the classroom into the active lives of students, both as individuals and as members of social groups.  It is not the facts we learn, but how we use them that provides us with the tools needed to better the human condition.

The instructor will use lectures, class discussions, group activities, handouts, supplementary readings, audio-visual aids, examinations, case studies, and other methods to facilitate learning.  Student performance expectations:

  1. The instructor assumes the student has read and understands the syllabus and expects students to ask questions if any aspect of the course requirements is unclear.
  2. Students are expected to demonstrate that they are meeting the course objectives by attending class; actively participating in class discussions, activities, and exercises; timely submitting all written assignments; delivering required oral presentations; and sitting for any scheduled examinations.
  3. Students are assigned readings from the required text(s) and/or supplemental text materials in advance of each class meeting and are expected to be prepared for class.
  4. Students are expected to ask questions if they do not understand something.
The instructor encourages a mutual learning environment, where students can freely raise questions in the search for understanding.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Specify the terminology, facts, concepts, principles, and theories associated with security administration.
  2. Recognize the managerial acts and functions required for asset, personnel, and facility protection.
  3. Interpret institutional stakeholder needs to coordinate appropriate security planning.
  4. Apply creative security solutions to practical organizational problems using frameworks, procedures, and methods from the security discipline.
  5. Formulate strategic plans for conducting security risk assessments, audits, and developing security plans.
  6. Evaluate the effectiveness of security plans using theory-based criteria and performance standards.


Core Assessment:

For CJ 333, the student will research and report on a contemporary security program in business, government, or industry that emphasizes the protection of assets, personnel, and/or facilities. The purpose of this research is to identify best practices in security administration.

To complete this project, students must: 

  1. Identify an actual organizational security program.
  2. Conduct research about the organization and the security program.
  3. Discuss the managerial acts and functions required for asset, personnel, and/or facility protection.
  4. Identify and discuss the role(s) of relevant institutional stakeholders in security planning.
  5. Identify how the organization has applied security solutions to problems using methods from the security discipline.
  6. Critique the organization’s strategic planning and risk assessment practices.
  7. Evaluate the effectiveness of organizational security planning and administration.
  8. Make conclusions and recommendations concerning best practices in security administration. 

The report will provide an integrated and equitable treatment of all issues and contain the following technical components:

  1. A cover or title page
  2. A body of text, 7-8 typed, double-spaced pages (1,750 to 2,000 words) in length
  3. A reference page containing a minimum of 8 course-external resources
  4. Written in APA Style
