Objectives and Contextualisation

It is about showing different aspects of security from the point of view of administrative intervention, whether regulated or self-regulated, in order to prevent risks or dangers to achieve comprehensive prevention. Sectors are chosen as the address, the public domain, the workplace, public and private transport, the hotel trade, etc. and the regulations, legal instruments and obligations of citizens are analyzed so that our specialists in prevention are prepared to face the requirements of Public Administrations.
 
The concepts of worker, employment, merchant, entrepreneur, mercantile companies, etc. are studied. in order to find appropriate solutions to open administrative procedures.
 
At the same time, the new rights that protect each situation will be explained: women, environmental, minorities, road safety, occupational risk prevention, food safety, health, anti-smoking, etc. appropriate to the new risk society model.
 
We will see each session as a right is guaranteed (to life, health, safety, etc.) through the analysis of a specific sector or in a specific area where human beings develop: the address, the university, the place of work, means of transport, hotels, shows, etc.
 
We will study the administrative intervention in matters of prison regime, the management of the shift of office, and the cooperation between the police courts and the police.
 
There will be an exhaustive study on the prevention of violence through the regulation of firearms. Exhibit how there are different security models depending on the restriction or freedom granted to the citizen in terms of the possession of weapons. We will analyze the American model of freedom and promotion of the armed individual to achieve a State where the citizen achieves his self-protection or not. At the same time, a comparison will be made with the European security model in which the possession of weapons for the defense of the citizen is a monopoly of the security forces and bodies. Once the two most representative models are exposed, it will be assessed which system offers more integral security.
