Continuing education in security is a popular and often typical part of law enforcement-related professions. Some states require that security professionals receive continuing education on a yearly basis. Many security personnel wish to move on to police work; others may want to learn additional skills or stay up-to-date on the latest security products and methods; some may wish to venture into Information Systems Security.
Security professionals will not be lacking options for furthering their education. Popular choices are colleges and universities featuring criminal justice courses and programs. These are available on-campus and more recently, online. In addition, many employers and/or law enforcement organizations host conferences and workshops for security personnel that count as continuing education.
Some topics associated with continuing security education include:
- Criminal Justice
- Information Security/Cyber Security
- Loss Prevention
