During the first year, a broad theoretical foundation is provided on human relations, mental health, critical interpersonal, communication and team building skills 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 and Introduction to Incident Management System (IMS 100) from Emergency Management Ontario. The goal of the Police Foundations program is to provide students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for not only a career in law enforcement, but also as a foundation for continual educational pathways into related fields of study.
