Course description

Today’s law enforcement professionals must be able to apply the laws of Canada and those of the provinces. Therefore, students require more than a basic understanding of the Canadian justice system and how it applies to the field of law enforcement. In this course, students acquire foundational knowledge and skills related to the development, structure and practical operation of the Canadian criminal justice system. The course is geared towards students who will become practitioners in the criminal justice field and will require knowledge of their role in relation to the justice process as a whole. Throughout the course, students will have an opportunity to critically analyze the various components of the justice system, as well as examine the overall effectiveness and efficiency of the system.
