I received a great understanding of the policing system and everything that surrounds it. In addition, I was able to work with two different police services by gaining paid co-op placements in my second and fourth year. I was able to learn on the job and it also provided me with a foot in the door which proved beneficial – I was hired with my service of choice even before I had graduated from Georgian.Dave Edgar, Constable at Barrie Police Services
