BC Police Foundations Training Program

Aspiring Police Officers and Law Enforcement professionals require post-secondary education. But you don’t have to spend time studying an unrelated field that doesn’t interest you. Instead, consider Police Foundations training, which can be the bridge to a rewarding career in public safety.

If you’re an assertive, conscientious individual interested in serving and protecting your community, our Police Foundations training program could be an excellent opportunity.

Becoming a Law Enforcement Professional

The Police Foundations Diploma Program from Discovery Community College provides the hands-on training, on-the-job experience and industry support it takes to pursue a rewarding career in Police Services.

Learn from experienced police officers and security professionals who know the work in the field. These professionals know what it takes to stay safe and succeed in the field and they’re eager to share their experience with interested students. As a student in this program you’ll get the modern policing techniques and practical skills it takes to succeed professionally.

Industry Practicum

Law Enforcement is a hands-on, active career, and at Discovery Community College we believe that’s how it should be taught. Students in this program learn on-the-job during an industry practicum. You’ll work alongside experienced law enforcement professionals and gain real-world experience and connections before you graduate.


As a graduate of this program you’ll receive a Basic Security Training (BST) Certification.
