Certificate in Court and Judicial Security Operations
Earn a National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) Certificate upon successful completion of the following four court security courses. Students enrolled in a CSU degree program, or who later enroll in a program, may be able to receive credit hours toward elective requirements.
- Introduction to Court Security (BCJ 3450): Introduction to Court Security is a prerequisite for all other court security operations courses. This is an introductory course about court security in and around our nation's court facilities. Court security now involves more than physical structures and high-tech security equipment aimed at protecting the court.
- Protecting Court Personnel (BCJ 3451): Protecting Court Personnel describes strategies and methods for ensuring judicial personnel are able to carry out their public charge. Personnel involved in the judicial system must be protected in order for the system to serve the general public in a consistent manner.
- Physical Security (BCJ 3452): Physical Security examines the organization and management of the security function in industry and business including assessing needs to protect personnel, facilities, and major assets, controlling and managing risks, and other professional, legal, and ethical issues. These specified disciplines in security and protection can have benefits for an officer willing to look at other unique areas of security for ideas to incorporate into their environment. Report writing, investigations, proper prisoner search techniques, transporting prisoners, and handling emergency situations will enhance the skills and career of any security detail.
- Court Security Supervision (BCJ 3453) : Court Security Supervision provides an overview of the concepts and key components of the role of supervisors and middle managers in any criminal justice agency. Special emphasis is placed on the importance of interpersonal skills and the ability to work with others. Topics covered include: communication, problem solving, time management, the hiring process, motivation and morale.
