2 Years - 4 Semesters      Ontario College Diploma

Program Overview

September and January Intakes are available for this program. Please contact the Registrar`s Office for further information.

The Protection, Security and Investigation program prepares graduates in a wide range of skills, enabling them to pursue careers in customs administration and brokering and public safety. The program has a common first year with the other criminal justice cluster program, Police Foundations. The program deals with the development, purpose, and operation of the legal system generally, and law enforcement related to customs, immigration, and security specifically. It also involves knowledge of security operations to protect persons and property in both the private and industrial settings. A new component in the program will introduce students to firefighter and emergency care operations. Understanding human behaviour and the development of strong interpersonal and communications skills will prepare the graduate to function more effectively and humanely in professions which demand mature and responsible reactions. Below are the top 5 reasons to take Protection, Security and Investigation:

  1. Graduate with two diplomas and a University degree! - By enrolling in this program followed by attending our nearby partner University, Lake Superior State University, you can graduate with both a College diploma and a University degree in three years, or you can graduate with two College diplomas and a University degree in 4 years, saving anywhere from $27,500 to $38,000 in educational costs.
  2. The only program in North America Partnered with Crime Stoppers for patrol experience! - Through the College`s close relationship with the police, the crime rate has decreased significantly in the area patrolled, in large part due to our students presence. Crime Stoppers` new headquarters will be re-located to the new police resource centre on Gore Street. You can apply your learning and gain experience soon after enrolling in our College program.
  3. Successful graduation from either diploma in our Justice Studies program area will exempt student from taking the security guard and private investigator training sanctioned by the Ministry! - We are one of only a few Colleges with this accreditation.
  4. Small class size! - Our low student to professor ratio provides excellence in education by giving one-on-one attention, teaching and guiding not often found in larger centres.
  5. Ranked Number One by students in the province! - The Protection Security and Investigation program (PSI) has been rated number one in the province for the past four years in a row by students that are highly satisfied with their program of study.
