JIBC grad credits relevant degree for her career success

Navi Dosanjh’s JIBC Bachelor of Law Enforcement Studies degree not only helped her secure a job with BC Corrections but it assisted her in her volunteer role as a reserve constable with Abbotsford Police Department during a hostage situation.


Navi Dosanjh has applied her education when she’s needed it most both as a correctional officer and as a reserve constable, where she helped to resolve a dangerous hostage situation.

Navi is a graduate of the Law Enforcement Studies Diploma (LESD) and Bachelor of Law Enforcement Studies (BLES) programs at the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC).

She has wanted to work in law enforcement since childhood. Prior to attending JIBC, she worked in the security field. She learned about the LESD program through her online research.

The Law Enforcement Studies Diploma program was one of the few, if not the only program that provided courses that were directly relevant to law enforcement, she said. In addition, JIBC is the institute that trains all BC Correctional Officers and municipal police officers in BC.

“I knew I wanted to be in that type of learning environment.”

While completing JIBC’s two-year LESD, she was recruited as a reserve constable with the Abbotsford Police Department.

During a shift on duty with an Abbotsford police officer, she attended a call involving a suicidal male threatening his family members in their home. read more »
