Security / Police Sciences

Many individuals and companies are working more diligently to ensure the safety of their family, friends, employees and co-workers. This often means taking additional steps such as using enhanced security systems and hiring private security firms.

In addition, many neighborhoods participate in community policing to ensure their homes are safe and secure. These extra measures often mean more job opportunities for individuals interested in careers in security and police sciences.

Stratford's Security and Police Science course was designed by professionals to provide a quality introduction to the field of private security. Topics include the examination of all aspects of corporate and retail security as well as basic self defense, loss prevention, legal liability and more.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median annual salary for security guards is $31,050.*

Salaries can vary depending on the place of employment, educational attainment, and the specific duties performed.
