School of Justice Studies Program

Gold | The Program Excellence Award

Lethbridge College’s School of Justice Studies has created a new, competency-based education model to provide training in both the hard and soft skills and knowledge that are essential to police work. This is the first time any public college in Canada has created such a police cadet training program, and the successful completion of the first cohort in 2017 shows it is an excellent model that is portable, meaningful and sustainable. While Lethbridge College, in collaboration with its partner police agencies, had already been offering a well-respected and high-quality recruit training credential, this new program was designed to respond to industry needs in new ways that benefit students, police officers, agencies and the communities they serve.
