college and police sign major agreement

Lethbridge Community College and the Lethbridge Police Service have signed a major new agreement which could lead to enhanced training for college students and officers.

Lethbridge Community College and the Lethbridge Police Service (LPS) are formalizing an ongoing relationship that started more than 20 years ago with the creation of the Criminal Justice program at the College.

It takes the form of a memorandum of understanding between the two institutions which could see police officers and staff receive specialized training at LCC. College students would benefit from using LPS as a practicum placement site.

“The agreement enhances our program immensely,” says Al Rudolph, team leader for LCC’s Centre for Criminal Justice. “Our students can access their staff as role-models and we can offer their people some highly specialized training in a local setting. We’ll both be able to save dollars while doing some very innovative things.”

“This memorandum of understanding lays the foundation for us to pursue significant enhancements to our training at all levels of the Police Service.” says Chief John LaFlamme, Lethbridge Police Service. “It is also evidenced that the collaborative working relationship between LCC and LPS continues to thrive and speaks well for the future.”

The agreement outlines the opportunity for the two bodies to jointly develop and deliver training for police recruits, officers, supervisors and staff.

The training initiatives will focus on preparing current and future staff, including support service staff, with the skills needed to address the challenges of providing this essential service to the community. Training will be offered to municipal police, RCMP and other agencies and, depending on the project, could provide specific knowledge and skills training for the province.

The agreement also acknowledges the LPS as a work and practicum placement site for LCC’s Criminal Justice students as well as students from other related programs.
