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

Remember, the online threaded discussions are public messages and all writings in this area will be viewable by the entire class.

Be sure to respond to EACH of the discussion questions for the week (some weeks, there may be 1, 2, or 3 questions presented).  Your first response should consist of 100 – 125 words for EACH question, and be posted by midnight Wednesday of each week. Then, go back and review your classmates’’ responses and post at least three (3) meaningful responses (i.e. a minimum of 125 total words) by midnight Sunday.  A “meaningful response” is one that goes beyond simply agreeing or disagreeing, i.e., by provoking further analysis, evaluation, and critique of the ideas discussed.

Your weekly discussion postings will be assessed using the Weekly Discussion, Quiz, and Proctored Final Exam Grading Rubric, provided in COURSE HOME/Rubric Section.

Quizzes (4)

There will be 4 quizzes covering material in Weeks 1 through 7. Each quiz will cover the required readings of the previous week(s). Successive quizzes will only cover material for which you have not already been quizzed on (e.g., Week 1 quiz covers Week 1 material; Week 3 quiz covers Weeks 2 and 3 material, and so on).  The quizzes, which are timed and can only be taken once, must be completed no later than midnight, Sunday of each of the appropriate weeks. Quiz questions may be objective or subjective in format. Subjective questions will be assessed using the Weekly Discussion Grading Rubric (above).

Journal Article Critical Reviews (2)

Each review is expected to be between 1,000 and 1,250 words typed.  As a rule of thumb, the first half of the review should be a summary of the information contained in the article, and the second half should contain your critical analysis and review of the article.  Your submission should cover the major theory or thesis, research methodology and population studied (if any), major arguments or points of view, findings or conclusions, and major issues.  It should also include a critique of the author’s work and its implications and usefulness for security managers and administrators. APA Style guidelines will be adhered to in all respects.

Your reviews will be assessed on each of the following ten (10) elements, but your review should be a consolidated and integrated product.

  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".

The report is a consolidated integration of the fundamental principles of security administration. Extends research well beyond minimum requirements. The report presents a basic compilation of fundamental principles of security administration, but integration of research themes is weak. The report responds to some individual issues of security administration, but with insufficient consolidation of ideas. No evidence of combining researched material into a consistent whole.
