Individuals with an educational aspiration for entry into policing or another related law enforcement agency will find it with the Police Foundations program.
During the first year, a broad theoretical foundation is provided on human relations and an overview of the criminal justice system. The second year focuses on courses specific to law enforcement, investigation, police powers and community policing. Students also achieve certification in Nonviolent Crisis Intervention training from the Crisis Prevention Institute, Mental Health First Aid from the Mental Health Commission of Canada and Introduction to Incident Management System (IMS-100) from Emergency Management Ontario. During their studies, students will utilize similar testing instruments from the Constable Selection process such as Police Analytical Thinking Inventory (PATI); Written Communications Testing (WCT); and Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police (PREP). The goal of the Police Foundations program is to provide the student with a well-rounded education that prepares them for a possible career in law enforcement.
