Training Commitment:

We would like to thank our partner agency, the Victoria Police Department, for providing the Reserve Training course in October 2018. Per the Victoria Police Department, “the training takes approximately 4 months with classes held 1-2 evenings a week and 1 weekend day. Candidates study legal issues, crime prevention, traffic, professionalism and ethics, communication tactics and self-defense training. Practical and written exams are held for self-defense and communications and two Provincial written exams are given on classroom studies. The Provincial written exams are conducted by the Justice Institute of BC. Training also has a strong physical/team building component. There is a minimal grade of 70% for all exams.”
