Certificate in Crime Prevention Studies
SYNOPSIS OF THE PROGRAM
The Certificate in Crime Prevention Studies exposes the security professionals to not only detect crime and criminal intent but allows them the opportunity to acquire excellent mitigating processes to prevent crime before it occurs. The content of the training cuts across businesses from manufacturing, logistics, transportation, service industries to hotels, malls and complexes and sensitive establishments. The concept of CPTED and business crimes receives special attention in the training.
The anticipation, recognition and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of specific actions to remove or reduce crime is the primary priority of the program. With budgetary constraints, management pressure and a varied demographic of employees, suppliers and customers, the principles and skills associated with crime prevention have taken a unique dimension of importance never before experienced and never more important than they are today. Versatility, flexibility, adaptability and adoptability are what the specialist is going to acquire and attain in this training and redefine the way they are going to skilfully handle crime prevention.
The Certificate in Crime Prevention Studies will be exposed to latest crime assessment and audit processes and techniques which can be customised and improvised accordingly to be implemented at their organizations for management of crime prevention strategies, processes and procedures. The culture of working in cohesion and collaboration with and among other departments and personnel and as well as law enforcement agencies in crime prevention initiatives strategized for both public and private businesses in diverse settings demands transferable action for the real world experience.
In summary the Certificate in Crime Prevention Studies recognises that crime prevention is a pattern of attitudes and behaviors directed at reducing the threat of crime and enhancing the sense of safety and security, to positively influence the quality of life in our society, and to develop environments where crime cannot flourish, must be eradicated if not reduced.
