CPS cuts ties with US college following investigation into accreditation

Calgary Police Service is ending all affiliation with the California-based College of Certified Psychophysiologists, following a Global News investigation into the college. The investigation found that the college has no recognized accreditation and issues degrees that “aren’t worth the paper they are printed on.” CPS reportedly paid approximately $30K for “various forms of supplemental training” including PhDs in psychophysiology, online courses, and certificates in police mental wellness. A CPS spokesman stated that anyone providing mental wellness care to officers requires education from recognized schools. Mount Royal University Associate Professor Dr Kelly Sundberg told the Calgary Herald that CPS’s decision to work with the unaccredited organization instead of a local university was “embarrassing” and “concerning.” Calgary Herald| Global News Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
