Honorary Presidential Prologue
In the early 1990s, as the Chief Captain of Pest County, I thought that in addition to my several degrees, I would also graduate from the College of Police Officers with a degree in Public Security, so that I would not be one-sided in law enforcement knowledges, not only in reconnaissance, operational and organizational work, but in the „uniformed street” work to be trained.
As a result, I later compiled a list of the knowledge that could be taught in other schools as a pre-training. I contacted the management of the deservedly world-famous University of Gödöllő to accredit a completely new degree, human resource manager with a degree in home affairs. University professors immediately became partners, but those working in police education were afraid I wanted to take their bread. It was not an easy battle to understand during the accreditation process that it was nothing more than improving efficiency. After all, the RTF can deal better with privileged professional knowledge (eg team service, investigation, reconnaissance, etc.) if applicants are already trained in other topics. Together with the professors, we thought that, for example, knowledge of business administration, youth protection, criminal law, psychology, criminology, communication, human rights, computer science, leadership, or other knowledge could be acquired in a “civilian” location. It's like language teaching: law enforcement schools don't have to teach basic der, die, das, but police measures! It was not easy, but in the end the course could be introduced uniformly to all universities across the country by government decision. We won! The result was multiple oversubscriptions. And those who did not go into police úlcareers at work, in life or in the security industry received knowledge and a crime prevention approach that could be put to good use by local governments.
