Program Information

In an ever changing society, the demands placed on our police forces and security firms are diverse and complex. Professionals in this field must not only be sensitive to the socio-cultural environment in which they work, but must also keep abreast of the latest technological and legal developments. A career in law enforcement and security offers many rewards including attractive salaries and benefits. The wealth of life experiences and good judgement adults possess is highly valued by public police and corporate security recruitment offices. The specialized curriculum in this 6 course certificate program proves invaluable to those wishing to pursue careers in the dynamic field of policing. This is an entry-level program designed to meet the training needs of individuals with little or no background in the field of police studies. It is also suitable for those contemplating a career change. This program has been designed for those seeking new career opportunities. The Police Studies program provides students with an understanding of the Canadian Justice System and its public enforcement. The primary objective is to provide students with a background in fundamental areas of knowledge required for public law enforcement and corporate security.
