Police Foundations

Cambrian’s blend of in-class assignments, scenario training, fitness components, and community work complement topics covered by the Ontario Police College and assist in preparing you for potential employment with a police service.

Extensive involvement in community initiatives, training with the Ontario Provincial Police, and participation in crime prevention projects with the Greater Sudbury Police Service gives you opportunities to network and volunteer within the community alongside working professionals. Further interaction with currently serving officers is provided as all local police agencies are represented within the program's part-time faculty.

Also, your theoretical knowledge will continually be put into practice in the program's scenario room where you are required to perform practical demonstrations, and various physical fitness courses and testing procedures that simulate industry testing are offered each semester, providing opportunities to practice meeting the requirements for applicant testing.
