Police, public safety, first responders and private security have evolved in the past two decades from simple response to crime and demands for service to a demand for skills that include data integration and analysis, engaging in intelligent led services, and initiation of planned and problem-solving service models. Computers and access to data has led to sophisticated crimes including fraud, embezzlement, identity theft, and criminal enterprises including terrorism. Yet, policing has not been able to investigate, with effectiveness, due to appropriate skills and knowledge deficits in cyber-crime. This certificate program offers a comprehensive knowledge-base and requisite skills to prepare, upgrade and direct individuals to this level of job expertise.
