Diploma Program Length: 48 Weeks


Over the next few years, the policing community will experience the largest recruitment effort ever due to retirement trends and an increase in the number of positions to be filled. The time has never been better for anyone who has an interest in seeking a career in this field.

The Police Foundations program allows students to prepare for employment opportunities and career success in entry-level policing and related law enforcement jurisdictions. The program combines practical, theoretical and substantive knowledge in a way that is relevant to police related work settings and it provides graduates with the required knowledge and skills to meet the proposed Ontario Constable Selection Standards. Note: The Constable Selection System (Ontario Ministry of Public Safety and Security) is a standardized system for Ontario police services to use in selecting candidates for the position of constable. The Constable Selection System (CSS) began in February 1998 when the Ministry granted license to the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) to sub-license individual police services and private sector firms to use the system to assess police constable applicants. To date, there are 41 police services, including 10 of Ontario’s largest police services using the CSS. Approximately 80 per cent of police applicants in the province are assessed using these criteria.

  • Classes led by qualified instructors, many of whom are retired Police Officers
  • Preparation for Security Guard License
