Once hired and sworn in by a Saskatchewan municipal police service, the candidate attends the Saskatchewan Police College for the 20-week Recruit Training program. This program is designed to help the candidate develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for successful performance of general policing duties.

The Core Competencies within the program include:

  • Effective Communication
  • Professionalism, Ethics and Integrity
  • Problem-Solving
  • Investigative Knowledge and Skills
  • Risk Assessment and Management
  • Wellness

The program is divided into four building blocks which reflect a scaled acquisition of knowledge and skills:

  • Introduction to Policing;
  • Introduction to Investigations;
  • Crisis Intervention and De-escalation; and
  • High Risk Investigation and Tactical Responses.

Problem-based learning and practical scenario training are woven throughout the program in order to allow Recruits the opportunity to demonstrate their learning.
