NWPD Student Police Academy
Are you a grade 11 or 12 student who is curious about a career in policing? Want to learn from the best about investigative methods and advanced driving techniques? Then consider applying for the New Westminster Police Department Student Police Academy.
Application due date is May 1, 2018 and the Academy runs from July 3 – July 13, 2018. The physical exam has been postponed.
This two week program gives you a behind the scenes look at all aspects of being a police officer. From physical conditioning and self-defense tactics, to scenario-based simulations and firearm safety, you’ll receive from police the most up to date tactical training.
You will learn about the many different aspects of policing from exciting guest speakers. Meet members of the K9 Unit, see the police helicopter – Air 1 up close, and get out on the water with the NWPD Marine Unit.
This is your opportunity to see what it takes to be a police officer.
Successful candidates will exemplify the following core values:
Professionalism – Police officers are expected to conduct themselves in a professional and appropriate manner both at work and in their personal lives.
Responsibility – Police officers are responsible for their own actions and for their contribution to a positive culture in their class.
Accountability – We are looking for candidates who understand the importance of taking ownership for their actions, both positive and negative.
Integrity –A police officer must be honest and truthful, realizing that the goal of each investigation is to discover truth rather than eliminating doubt.
Service – Police officers exemplify one of the most effective forms of leadership: servant leadership. Police officers lead by example and willingly assist with the most marginalized of all populations.
Endurance – Policing is both physically and mentally challenging.
