Learn the skills required to be successful in many different careers related to public safety, law enforcement, and security. Cadets will receive the following training: driving and vehicle operations, including highway radar (moving and stationary); certified firearms training provided to the same standard as many police agencies; the National Use of Force Framework and hands-on defensive control tactics; physical fitness training that emphasizes lifelong fitness habits; and communications and mental health training to prepare cadets to interact with people and to build their own mental resilience in these challenging fields of work.
As part of the Sheriff and Public Safety Officer program, all cadets participate in on-the-job training at various sheriff offices, courthouses and secure facilities throughout Atlantic Canada. Depending on their placement, they may also perform commercial vehicle traffic enforcement. This real-life experience provides cadets with the opportunity to use their skills and knowledge and develop the fundamentals needed to pursue a variety of careers, including sheriff, provincial and municipal public safety officer, security officer, armored vehicle officer and correctional officer.
Sheriff and Public Safety Officer cadets are required to live in residence for the duration of their training, except during on-the-job training.
