Humber Police Foundations students receive state-of-the-art training

Crime scene simulation

Crime Scene Lab

The mock crime scene apartment is one of the new newest labs built at Humber's Lakeshore Campus. View your classmates 'at work' in the overhead viewing theatre and critique their performance. The mock apartment includes kitchen, living room, bedroom, and washroom. Mannequins are used as victims and used to help set a scenario in which students identify clues and solve crimes.

Evidence simulation

Forensic Lab

The Forensic equipment that Humber offers students in the Crime Scene Simulation Studio is entirely impressive in scope. The varied array of tools that are made available to students are all state-of-the-art equipment that’s the latest in technology available to the crime solving industry. This benefit to students is huge, as Police departments won’t have to waste time retraining students but can have them step right in and play a vital role from the get-go.

Students in mock court

The Mock Court

The mock court has been utilized as a teaching platform in both the Police Foundations diploma program and the Criminal Justice BAA program. Typically, classes are broken up into trial groups and assigned a particular charge to prosecute or defend. The specific scenario and evidence is entirely up to the creativity of the group.

Firearms conflict lab simulation

Conflict Sim Lab

Using the latest in digital technology, FAAC simulators create life-like situations to train students in driving skills, conflict resolution and the use of force. The School of Social and Community Services has acquired this leading edge system, the first full 180-degree, interfacing simulators in Canada, to support your learning in a safe environment that provides immediate feedback and customizes based on your approach.

Driving simulation lab

Driving Sim Lab

Police pursuit driving, city, highway, snow and rain – expose yourself to the toughest challenges to build the best driving skills in a controlled environment. Trained instructors will put you through your paces changing obstacles while you drive.
