Thanks to his JIBC education, Jordan Zanotto, 21, is well on his way to a successful career in law enforcement – a goal he has had for as long as he can remember.

“Working in any law enforcement agency provides a great opportunity to help people and serve the community. That’s why I have always wanted to become a law enforcement officer,” he said. “The most rewarding thing for me is knowing that I have the opportunity to help someone in need.”

To reach his goal, he applied and was accepted into JIBC’s Law Enforcement Studies Diploma (LESD) program, which is a unique academic program that provides prospective law enforcement officers with the applied skills and specialized knowledge needed to be sought after candidates in a highly competitive recruitment process.

Jordan was three courses away from graduating from the LESD program when he was successfully hired to become a deputy sheriff with BC Sheriff Services in January 2015.

He credits the education and experience he gained through the LESD program for helping him become a sheriff. read more »
