The following are current and upcoming course offerings offered through the Centre for Public Safety and Well-Being for police training.
In 2005, to more comprehensively address Trafficking in Persons (TIP) in all its manifestations, as well as to target related culpable conduct, Canada enacted additional Criminal Code offences pertaining to human trafficking. While the important investigative work of police officers in the apprehension and prosecution of TIP offenders is self-evident, this course explores the crucial role of those same investigators in the prevention of such crimes and assistance of survivors of human trafficking. In this context, with a trauma-informed and survivor-centered focus, this course provides learners with perspectives and takeaway skills to enhance their capacity as public safety professionals and elevate their service excellence.
