Programs at St. Lawrence College are delivered using a variety of instruction modes. Courses may be offered in the classroom or lab, entirely online, or in a hybrid mode which combines classroom sessions with online learning activities. Program delivery can be run weekdays, weekends or evenings. Upon registration, each full-time student is provided a St. Lawrence College email account which is used to communicate important information about program or course events.
The program will prepare graduates to successfully complete the PREP (Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police) test, a standardized entry requirement for all provincial and municipal Police Services.
Applicants are expected to have the physical and mental health needed to:
a) successfully cope with the program of instruction
b) meet the public health requirements of any law enforcement or volunteer agency to which they might apply.
It is highly recommended that applicants check the Essential Hiring Requirements of the police service to which they have an interest in employment. In addition, a vision and hearing test is strongly suggested. This information is required to assist applicants to understand the requirements of the employer and how their results compare with these requirements.
In order to be considered for employment by a police service an individual who has been criminally convicted under a federal statute (other than the Youth Criminal Justice Act or the Y.O.A.) must obtain a pardon prior to submitting an application. There may be a fee for the criminal history check.
Please Note: To participate in learning activities with policing agencies, a criminal background check will be required. If you have come in conflict with the law by contravening a federal statute(s) you may not meet the security clearance(s). Meeting the behavioural standard will be the responsibility of the student.
