If you’re interested in public law enforcement or in a career as a police officer, border services officer or correctional officer, this program offers excellent pre-employment academic instruction. You'll study the theory of human relations, combined with practical aspects and applications of law enforcement, police powers, community policing and investigation. You’ll be prepared to compete within the Ontario Constable Selection System for employment in public law enforcement or related careers. After the first year in the police foundations program, you’ll have the option of remaining in the program or transferring into the Protection, Security & Investigation program (PSI), concentrating on loss prevention, risk management and corporate and commercial security. With the Police Foundations program, your ambitions will be met by limitless career potential. The Police Foundations program is designed to give potential police candidates a broad education in the theory of human relations, combined with related academic knowledge of the law, police powers, community policing and investigation. Delivered in the same context as other post-secondary education programs, the goal of the Police Foundations program is to provide students with a well-rounded education that prepares them to address the problems of the communities that they may serve, in a flexible and effective manner. The physical training and career preparation components of the program are designed to assist students to meet the demands of police recruitment processes. This program is not a requirement with police services.
