Dean’s message

I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to you for your interest in the Department of Police Science and Security at OCU.
Our department opened to cultivate experts on criminal justice and security. Academic and practical demands for criminal justice – such as police study, criminology and security – are increasing in proportion to our society’s growing needs for security. With the changes in the security sector, there are demands for professional talents in public and private organizations including the police, prosecution, probation offices, correctional institutions, special judicial police, military investigation agencies, security offices and private security companies, security consulting companies, court security teams and parliament security.
To meet these needs, the faculty of the Department of Police Science and Security will strive to foster experts on criminal justice and security in our lifelong education system. Thank you for your attention and support.
