What's New? Program Updates

  • The Fall 2019 Term of online courses will begin on September 5 and will run to December 20. We will take registrations up to the beginning of the term, however it is recommended that new students to the program register by August 25 in order to avoid delays in getting access to the online course materials.
  • Strategic Management through Evidence-Based Policing is our newest course. It is a required course in the Service Delivery certificate concentration, replacing the former Strategic Policing course. Students who want to take this course independently without committing to the certificate program are welcome to do so.
  • Our Policing the Modern Community course in the Service Delivery concentration has been renamed Policing the Modern Community: Dealing with Diversity and Difference. The course will be completely revamped over the summer months to focus on the most current policing models with a focus on initiatives such as the HUB model, as well as engaging students in a dialogue about various issues including street checks, racial profiling and Indigenous policing.
  • The Police Leadership Program has introduced a new certificate concentration. You can now earn a Certificate in Police Leadership with a concentration in International Policing and Security by taking the courses, Child Soldiers and at Risk Youth, and Understanding and Responding to Global and Domestic Terrorism: A Social Science Perspective.
  • Congratulations to the 2019 winner of the Sgt. Bruce MacPhail Award for Academic Excellence, S/Sgt. Dan MacLean of the Peterborough Police Service! The next winner will be announced in the summer of 2020.
  • We do not currently have any Managing Police Performance: Coaching Skills for Police Supervisors workshops scheduled. We are in the process of examining how we can effectively deliver this course online to be able to reach a larger number of students from across the country. Stay tuned on this exciting new development. We are still responsive to organizations who may wish to bring us in to deliver this in a workshop format to their members. Please contact the Program Director at police@dal.ca for more information.
