In response to the need for education of staff working or would work in the security sector, several higher education institutions in the country have accredited study programs in this area. Ten years ago, to expand the offer of study programs in the first cycle of studies at one of the oldest faculties in the field of security in Southeast Europe - the Faculty of Security - Skopje, at the St. Kliment Ohridski University from Bitola, the first generation of students were enrolled in the study program in Security.
