Lethbridge College

    My intensive, two-year diploma gave me the skills and knowledge I need to make an impact in this vital field. I learned from qualified instructors with real policing experience, covering topics ranging from criminal and procedural law to interpersonal skills and criminology. I also gained valuable training learning about interviewing, courtroom procedures, conflict management, and investigative techniques.
