MSJC Offers New Private Security Certificate and Course

Temecula, Ca – Mt. San Jacinto College’s Administration of Justice program is offering a new Introduction to Private Security course (AJ-098). The class will meet Monday evenings at the Temecula Higher Education Center (THEC) this fall.

The private security sector has experienced significant growth in recent years with an estimated 20 million private security officers worldwide and an industry worth about $240 billion. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the number of jobs for security guards and gaming surveillance officers to increase from 6 to 10 percent between now and 2026.

This introductory course covers historical and contemporary issues relating to private security. The course is designed to provide students with a general overview of the important roles and responsibilities of private security plays in our society while also sensitizing them to the complexities and ambiguities of modern private security. Employment strategies and state certifications will also be covered.

The course will be held from 7 to 9:50 p.m. Mondays.

MSJC’s Administration of Justice program also is offering a new certificate program this fall for those interested in private security careers: Private Security and Loss Prevention. The program is available on all campuses and online.
