Justice and Public Safety Information Management
Graduate Certificate in Justice and Public Safety Information Management
Offered by The College of Professional Studies in association with The IJIS Institute
Classes held at GW’s Ashburn Campus
In the law enforcement, public safety, and homeland security fields, the dependence on information technology is significant, and still growing. Since the executives of these organizations seldom have a background in information management, they must rely on a trusted manager to develop policies and implement operations that support the mission.
Offered in conjunction with the IJIS Institute, a non-profit organization that focuses on mission-critical information sharing, the graduate certificate in Justice and Public Safety Information Management provides a focused skill set for working professionals in justice, public safety, and information technology that they can use in the fight against crime, terrorism, and other pressing security issues. Enroll in this course to:
• Understand the challenges and contemporary solutions related to information sharing and safeguarding
• Apply current concepts and standards of enterprise architecture to justice and public safety fields
• Integrate past, current and future policy principles related to information technology in justice and public safety fields
• Build collaboration and consensus in government IT projects
This program represents an academic response to the rising demand for professionals with a comprehensive and strategic knowledge of policy, best practices, and strategies related to IT and data management for use by public and private sector homeland security and justice organizations.
This 15-credit graduate certificate may be completed in three semesters, or may be taken as a concentration in the Master’s Program in Safety and Security Leadership.
