A word from the chair 
The security sector world over is fundamental for the realization of a secure environment on which all other sectors thrive.   Indeed the question of crime management and rehabilitation of those involved in crimes has always been the concern of states irrespective of the level of socio-cultural, political and economic advancement. State actors especially, the law makers, the law enforcement as well as mediation agencies, have come to acknowledge the role the security sector must play in the maintenance of law and order. With this in mind Kenyatta University became a major stockholder in security management by establish the Department of Security and Correction science and putting in place the necessary resources in order to facilitate training and research in security related areas. The department of security and correction science plays a key role in the training of professionals who end up attaining the competencies and skills that enable them to competently work in security related areas as well as carrying out research in order to inform policy making in the security sector. The department has a wide catchment area which includes both uniformed and non-uniformed professionals as well as nonprofessionals- in security and non-security establishments in addition to the non- employed who wish to further their studies in security management and thereby ultimately improving the security environment. The market for security managers is enormous owing to the fact that the security environment has continued to threaten all other sectors the world over. 
Vision
The department envisages being a hub of teaching, research and service in Security and Correction science.    
Mission
To train experts with skills and competencies  in  security management and correctional science which are relevant or crucial theoretically and practically in academics, policy making and at societal level.
