Preparation for Police Work

Criminal Justice


Will a degree in Criminal Justice help you get into the police force?

This is difficult to answer, because police organizations set their own hiring policies and change their requirements frequently. Most consistently, the RCMP give points to applicants with a University degree.

We believe in an educated police force.  We are confident that our graduates are well-prepared because they understand the operation of the criminal justice system, have a grasp of its problems, and will respond well to progressive innovations. Our students are better positioned for promotional opportunities because their education will give them a broader perspective on policing.

Many of our graduates have been hired by policing agencies locally and across Canada. We are proud of their contributions to public safety.
