Investigation - Public and Private 20th anniversary

Graduates of the Investigation - Public and Private program have been helping ensure the safety of communities and businesses for almost two decades. Alumni, past and present faculty, community partners and current students of the program marked this milestone at an on-campus celebration earlier this month. Among the guests were keynote speakers and alumni Margaret Goodwin (Investigation – Public and Private, 2012), Front of House manager, Toronto Centre for the Arts; and Dean Correia (Business Administration Certification, 1991), principal, Coreira Security Resources.

Other special guests included former faculty Jean Callaghan (and past coordinator) and Peter Larsen who taught in the program for the past two decades. Former program coordinators Peter Cybulski and Kathryn Cameron were also on hand, as well as current coordinator, Gary Galbraith.

Since its inception, 710 students have graduated from the Investigation – Public and Private program. Currently, the program produces between 45 and 50 alumni each year. Alumni have long benefitted from the program’s placement component which allows students to gain the industry experience that is so crucial to landing employment after graduation. To date, the Investigations program has connections with 40 community partners, several of which were represented at the anniversary event. Alumni work in a variety of areas including public and community safety, loss prevention, law enforcement, corporate security and fraud investigation/prevention.
