About Us

The Academy Since 2001

Member - Manitoba Association of Career Colleges NorthWest Law Enforcement Academy was created to fill a very real need for effective training of law enforcement personnel.

Too often the traditional education system offered a scholarly viewpoint where too many instructors had little or no hands on experience in the field as a law enforcement officer.

The academy has assembled an impressive group of people with a wide variety of expertise, including current and former employees of the following agencies:

Winnpeg Chamber Of Commerce Member
  • Winnipeg Police Service
  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police
  • Canadian Pacific Police
  • Canada Border Services Agency
  • Attorney General Department
  • Corrections Branch, Manitoba Justice
  • Canadian Police College
  • Ontario Provincial Police
The Downtown Watch and Northwest Law Enforcement Academy have enjoyed a professional relationship over the years. Human Resource personnel from the Watch attend and speak to our Classes about volunteering opportunities as Ambassadors and employment opportunities as Outreach Patrol members.

Many of our students have and continue to take advantage of these opportunities in gaining valuable experience on their path towards careers in Law Enforcement.
