The major in Policing, Public Safety and Security provides a pathway that will be of specific interest to professionals working within the public safety industry (incorporating police, security organisations and other agencies involved in public safety). Western Sydney University has a long history of working closely with public safety organisations and the major draws on this experience and expertise. Through specialist subjects the program provides an in depth consideration of some of the complex challenges faced by contemporary leaders in public safety and provides a forum to examine, in detail, possible approaches to these challenges. Examples of the challenges explored within the major include the contemporary role of policing; security and public safety organisations; engaging with and policing vulnerable populations; managing offender behaviour; effective leadership and governance in policing and public safety; evidence based practice and policy development. This major has been developed to serve the needs of mid-career professionals in the public safety industry who wish to develop their leadership abilities through a Master in Business Administration.
