This need is not expected to be short term. Concerns with threats to property and persons in our country will continue to grow in the years ahead. Trends clearly demonstrate increased demand in all aspects of investigative services, perimeter safeguards, surveillance systems, risk management, and armored car services.
The University of Massachusetts Lowell is pleased to announce a new Certificate Program in Security Management and Homeland Security, offered by the Criminal Justice Department in conjunction with Continuing Studies and Corporate Education.
