Creating educational pathways in policing

On November 9th, 2018 the Canadian Police College (CPC) signed an Articulation Agreement with Wilfrid Laurier University. The University will provide advance credits to participants towards their Bachelor of Arts in Policing. This will include nine of the CPC's advance and specialized courses. The degree is offered completely online.

This is the eighth Articulation Agreement that the College has entered into. These agreements encourage police officers at all ranks to continue their educational pathway and further promote professionalization of policing in Canada.

The policing landscape is becoming increasingly more complex. Nowadays, police organizations around the world are also attaching more and more importance to higher education, especially to occupy positions at manager and senior executive levels. Fostering partnerships with Academic institutions is the ideal way to reinforce the importance of educating our police force and better preparing them as future police leaders.

The signing of this Articulation Agreement was attended by: Deputy Commr. Jennifer Strachan (Specialized Police Services – RCMP), A/Commr. Serge Côté, Executive Director (CPC), Dr. Lauren Eisler (Dean of Faculty of Human and Social Science - WLU), Maggie Paoletti (WLU), Scott Blandford (WLU), and Frank Tovato (WLU), and Filomena Silva, Manager, Academic Standards and Learning Development (CPC).
