ENPQ expands police officer training to address backlog, population growth

The École nationale de police du Québec is unable to train enough police officers to meet the demand, reports Le Nouvelliste. Part of the police training backlog was created when the institution was forced to close from March to June 2020. While the institution has gradually been increasing the number of students since reopening in June 2020, it has graduated 355 fewer students over the past two years. ENPQ has announced that it will train 108 additional students each year to address the backlog, and that it will maintain this new training rate to address an expected additional demand from Quebec police organizations. Le Nouvelliste says that institutions offering college diplomas in police techniques must also train more students, as ENPQ requires applicants to have a college diploma in police techniques.
