The Community and Justice Services program is designed to prepare students for careers in the field of criminal justice with attention to intervention and re-integration.
Graduates will be prepared for careers in youth facilities; federal and provincial correctional institutions; justice agencies; and community agencies, programs, and services. The nature of these environments and the diversity of clientele demand a highly trained work force able to intervene effectively using best practices, in order to ensure the protection of the public, and the safety of the community, staff, and clients. Graduates who wish to work in the field of criminal justice with attention to intervention and re-integration may be required to complete employer specific orientation and training, as well as other employment-related screening as part of their recruitment.
Careers may be based in youth facilities; federal and provincial correctional institutions; justice agencies; and community agencies, programs and services.
Employers who provide our field placement settings require a clear POLICE RECORD CHECK for criminal offences with vulnerable sector screening before accepting a student into the field placement setting. The record check MUST be obtained by the student at the student's expense. If you are unable to obtain this police clearance by mid-September, you jeopardize the opportunity to complete either of your field placements.
In the event of a shortage of placements or internship sites, you may be required to perform your placement or internship duties on off hours, which may include evenings and weekends.
Accepted applicants must supply proof of a satisfactory medical examination and immunization prior to going on placement.
HEALTH & FITNESS REQUIREMENTS
Applicants must be able to physically perform the duties of a position in a correctional institution. To obtain a diploma in CJS, successful applicants will be required to meet the minimum standards of the PREP. Any student seeking entry into this program should evaluate their physical readiness in anticipation of a rigorous fitness routine.
