Police Investigative Techniques and Procedures Certificate

In response to an increasing need for officers to justify and articulate actions taken during the course of an investigation, JIBC's Police Academy offers a six-course, 29-day Police Investigative Techniques & Procedures Certificate Program.

Who Should Take This Certificate

This certificate is suited for officers who are currently serving, or are planning to enter, an investigative unit at either their home agency or as part of an integrated team.

This JIBC certificate will be offered to serving members of all municipal and tribal police departments as well as members of the RCMP.

When officers complete the certificate, they will have the ability to apply an informed, modern approach to investigating criminal offences. Completion of this program will allow them to be assigned to investigate most criminal offences as well as broaden their understanding of investigative procedures and processes.
