PRO 521 Advanced Building and Perimeter Security

As part of the task of protecting people, the executive protection specialist must also protect property as part of their duties. Physical security concerns the protection of buildings and perimeters through the use of locks, fences, lighting, alarm systems, and other access control methods. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to apply advanced concepts of perimeter and building security to conduct a systematic security and safety evaluation, taking into account the function of the building being evaluated and the needs of its occupants. They will also be able to develop a plan for procedures and process that will make that property less vulnerable to security breaches. Students will also be able to distinguish the pros and cons of different options available to the security professional, including guards, card keys and alarm systems, fencing, and improved training of the people who work in or use the facility.
