PRogram objectives

Police Technology First Nations & Inuit | Collège Ellis
The Police Technology Program aims at developing skills that will allow the student to reach the profession of police officer. By evolving in a well-supervised environment, the student will learn to apply the disciplinary and ethical qualities expected of any police corps. By wearing the uniform, the student will integrate the required attitudes of respect and know-how that are essential to the police profession. Our reality-based program will allow the student to complete their academic training while participating in different integration activities. Also, the student will be able to simulate police interventions in specially equipped rooms and finally,  will develop all the necessary combat techniques for physical interventions. Afterwards, the student will be prepared to continue his training at the École national de police (ÉNPQ).
