MEANING OF SECURITY
Many people have different approach and concept of what security actually mean and many have tried to define it in their own way based on their area of expertise. According to the South African White Paper on defense 1996, “Security can be defined as an all-encompassing condition in which individual citizen lives in freedom, peace and safety, participate fully in the process of governance, enjoy the protection of fundamental rights, have access to resources and the basic necessities of life; and inhibit an environment which is not detrimental to their health and well-being.”
My honourable colleagues, from the above definition, I want to assure you that if all the elements of security as mentioned above form your aim of undertaking a course in Criminology or Security Studies and if those who aspire to lead others can embrace those facts, I believe that the world will be a safe and better place for all of us. I want you to now that whatever you are doing and there is no SECURITY in it is bound to crash! No matter how beautiful the concept or how professional the person who doing it may be! We all need security to exist on the surface of the earth not just mere convoy of security operatives running after us. Let us work together to promote and enthrone security in all our affairs.
