- Allow the development of a career for public security professionals who, at present, see their chances of advancement and promotion limited due to the scarce and inadequate academic offer related to their field of action, for which they are forced to access other types of studies unrelated to their professional work.
- Create operational research models that increase professional knowledge according to the demands for training in prevention and management of security, crises and emergencies from the different needs.
- Develop vectors of knowledge that allow an immersion in the areas of information, prevention and action, in accordance with social demands and pluralism.

- Be able to communicate your conclusions and the knowledge and conceptual framework on which they are based, both to expert and non-expert audiences, clearly and unambiguously.
