Lethbridge launches Indigenous Policing Micro-Credentials program 

Lethbridge College has launched the Indigenous Policing Micro-Credentials program, which will help public safety workers improve their services for Indigenous community members. The development of the program stems from conversations between Lethbridge faculty members and the Blood Tribe that identified a need to learn “more about communication and culture,” in addition to the law. The program has six individual sections which are offered fully online, covering topics such as Drugs and Addiction in Indigenous Communities; History Culture and Reconciliation; Human Trafficking; and Trust, Respect and Communication. The program is geared toward police who work with First Nations, and is also open to those who work in policing, public safety, and justice in any part of Canada.
