Diploma in Police Foundations

Serving and protecting has never been so demanding - or so rewarding! Through the Police Foundations program, you will develop the skills and training necessary to deal with the wide range of situations officers encounter every day.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
By choosing a career in police services, you are making a decision to work with and for a wide-range of diverse individuals and communities. You will rely on your well-rounded education and background in not just law enforcement, but critical interpersonal, communication and team-building skills. Today's police services personnel must be able to keep up with the pace and challenges of societal change, keeping in mind integrity, honesty, enthusiasm and maintaining personal, physical and mental well being.

Fleming College's Police Foundations program has evolved to meet the changing needs of police services and the communities in which they serve. New curriculum addresses the increasing role of civilian policing in Ontario. We now provide options for students who are interested in a career in law and justice and want to take the program as a foundation for continuing educational pathways, or for career opportunities other than a police constable. Students can graduate with a Police Foundations diploma by taking the curriculum stream that emphasizes civilian policing over fitness.

WHY CHOOSE FLEMING COLLEGE FOR POLICE FOUNDATIONS
Test – Drive Your Career

While policing is a rewarding career, it is also extremely demanding. Completing the extensive experiential learning in our program, where you are exposed to many aspects of policing, will allow you to make an informed decision on your future career choice in law enforcement.

Innovative Curriculum - Mental Health Strategies In Policing
Fleming College is leading the way in providing specialized training to respond to increasing numbers of mental health calls-for-service. Recent inquests have highlighted that these calls can be fatal, and often the individual officer’s level of training factors into successfully resolving the situation. Officer duties frequently involve incidents that result in mental health issues for the officer, commonly PTSD. The new Mental Health Strategies In Policing curriculum also examines the relationship between mental health and the student, as both a member of the community and as a candidate for policing.

Field Placement:
Our placement experience really does set Fleming apart from other police programs at the college level. With our close associations and partnerships with a number of police services, you will have an opportunity to take advantage of a wide variety of placements and practicum experiences. NOTE: Placement experience will be subject to a clearance check by the police service. Field placement may extend beyond the 15-week block in semester four, depending on the experience you choose and the preference of the police service placement.

Students who meet specified standards are eligible to participate in one of our two field placement programs, which generally consists of 100 hours working directly with officers at a police service. Students assist officers with community policing initiatives and participate in ride-a-longs with uniformed officers on general patrol.

Communication Skills
Our program emphasizes the most important skill a police officer can possess; the ability to communicate. The capacity to show assertiveness, diffuse conflict, display empathy and establish rapport and trust are hallmarks of any good police officer. This skill set is not only important in policing, but transferable to nearly any career that involves community interaction. To facilitate learning, course curriculum emphasizes scenario and problem- based instruction.

Instructors
Faculty has extensive policing experience with several different police agencies within the Province of Ontario. They are knowledgeable in a range of policing issues including recruiting, investigations, federal and provincial law, officer safety, fitness and communications. “Core” police courses such as Criminal Code, Interview and Investigation and Police Powers are taught by former or current police officers.

Reputation
The Police Foundations Program at Fleming College has been in existence for over thirty years and has cultivated an excellent reputation with police services across the province. Our students are recognized for their professionalism, commitment to community and integrity. Hundreds of graduates have gone onto very successful careers in policing including Chief Murray Rodd from the Peterborough / Lakefield Community Police Service.

Recent graduates, Megan Hickey and Jesse McDonald featured in our video about their placement experience are now both full-time constables: Meghan was hired by the OPP, West Region and Jesse is with the Anishinabek Police Service
