The Ontario Police College and the Canadian Police Knowledge Network have adapted the Advanced Patrol Training Course (APT) program into an e-learning course.

Occurrences of domestic violence are unique and police officers must be adaptable in their response to these situations.  This module addresses procedures and preferred practices to follow when responding to domestic violence calls, arrest issues, victim assistance services, as well as options for search and seizure as they relate to firearms and other weapons.

This is one of eight modules in the Ontario Police College’s Advanced Patrol Training course.  As such, some portions of this course are specific to Ontario jurisdictions. Interested participants from outside of Ontario are encouraged to contact CPKN for further information.
