Overview

Diploma in Community & Justice Services

The Community and Justice Services program at St. Clair College focuses on at-risk and high-risk client groups in both community and institutional settings. 

The nature of these environments and the diversity of clients demand a highly trained workforce 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. 

This program is designed to prepare students for front-line careers in the justice system with attention to custody, risk assessment, case management, intervention strategies, and reintegration.

Program Highlights

  • The comprehensive curriculum involves both theory and hands-on learning and prepares students for a wide variety of careers related to institutional and community-based services as well as other areas of law enforcement.
  • Specialized courses such as Youth in Conflict with the Law, Institutional Correctional Practices, and Restorative Justice are taught by field experts providing first-hand expertise about existing issues and current trends.
  • Students obtain invaluable experience working with at-risk client groups through an intensive work placement experience. This connects students to the community and many employment opportunities.
  • The program prepares students to meet with success for the FITCO fitness testing required by the Ministry of Corrections.
