For the third year in a row, DRP is proud to be hosting the Fundamentals of Auditing in a Police Organization course at the Police Learning Centre located in Durham College . This five-day learning opportunity is offered to any individual who plays an auditing role in a law enforcement organization.
This year's course is being held from May 24 until May 28, and 20 candidates will be participating, four of which come from the DRP. The rest hail from all over the province, including members from the the Ministry of Finance and other police services such as Guelph, Barrie, Peel, Halton, Waterloo, London, Belleville, York, Amherstburg, Anishinabek, Cornwall, Sudbury and Owen Sound.
This is the only audit training course in North America that is designed specifically for the municipal police environment. On the first day, participants learn the basics of auditing for a law enforcement organization. During the next three days, they will be divided into four teams. Each team will focus specifically on either prisoner care and control, auxiliary policing, police vehicles or pay duty. The teams will head out and do real-life audits for each of these areas of DRP. On the final day, each team will provide their findings and recommendations to senior management.
The course is being taught by Ray Jacobsen, an auditing expert with over 20 years experience working with the RCMP, the Canadian Police College and the City of Ottawa. Ray has also taught courses in auditing in Canada, the United States and Europe.
