Today, an increasing number of employees in public and private organizations are called upon to perform specialized investigation, enforcement and regulatory compliance functions that complement those performed by police and other peace officers. These public and private officials address issues that are increasingly more sophisticated, organized and technically challenging than in the past. The specialized mandates and issues faced by these officials requires a knowledge base and set of competencies that are somewhat different from, but generally complementary to, those required by police officers. The two-year Law Enforcement Studies Diploma Program consists of 60 credits with 840 hours of course work in two major content areas: Law enforcement studies - criminology, the Canadian justice system, administrative and civil law, criminal law, investigation skills and procedures, computer investigation skills, law enforcement communication skills, applied law enforcement skills (e.g. emergency vehicle operations, fitness, firearms safety, surveillance, evidence collection and preservation, crisis intervention, use of force, arrest and control techniques), research skills, and a major project based on an approved topic in law enforcement. Liberal studies - academic writing, communication skills, critical reading and writing, applied ethics, conflict resolution, diversity issues in law enforcement, Aboriginal justice and governance.
