This program prepares graduates to work in police agencies as police constables and in other related fields of law enforcement and security.
The Police Science (Cadet) program blends academic and tactical training to ensure that you have the confidence and skills needed to keep yourself and your community safe. The program blends real-life situations and simulations to prepare you for the law enforcement profession. You will practice on a driving course and gun range, learn use of force and control skills, develop criminal investigation techniques, and receive communications and mental health training. Academic components include coursework in sociology, psychology and law.
Police Science cadets are required to live in residence for the duration of their training, except when they are in on the job training.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police now accepts graduates from the Atlantic Police Academy’s Police Science (Cadet) program. To join the RCMP, graduates must pass a medical examination, obtain an RCMP Security Clearance and pass an interview. Before their first posting as an RCMP officer, they will participate in a short training course instead of taking the force’s 26-week course.
