Police work requires the building of relationships in the community and is very rewarding for those who are interested in serving the needs of society. Whether you are dealing with the security concerns at a store, speaking with a senior citizen, or befriending a group of local kids, the job challenges are complex and gratifying.
The Police Foundations program prepares you to work within a community to ensure public safety through crime prevention and law enforcement. Areas of study include policing, interviewing and interrogating techniques, sociology and criminology, criminal investigations, forensics and evidence.
The program also includes the Canadian Firearms Safety Course and Restricted Firearms Safety Course. Once completed, you can apply for your Possession/Acquisition License (PAL) and will be required to go through a security screening process to qualify.
The Police Foundations program prepares graduates to apply to organizations such as Ontario Police Services (municipal and provincial), RCMP, Canadian Armed Forces, By-law Enforcement, Private Police and Investigators, Canadian Border Services Agency, and Correctional Services to name a few.
