3 hours 

How the idea of homeland defense connects with private security and private sector justice is the chief aim of this course. In a more particular sense, the course reviews and analyzes threats to private infrastructure and interests, as well as planning for and responding to emergencies that affect both the private and public sectors. Topics covered include the impact of terrorism on the private sector, intelligence gathering and sharing between private and public security, and identification of various threats common to private security. Special emphasis is given to vulnerability analysis and risk management as well as suggestions on how public entities can partner with private sector justice in the defense of the homeland.
