Created specifically for police officers this new 3 day program offers the opportunity to learn about some of the world’s major religions.

You will:

  • Meet religious community leaders

  • Engage with colleagues about best practices for connecting with diverse communities

  • Tour houses of worship and learn about sacred spaces and traditions

  • Take part in interesting classes and discussions designed to enhance your knowledge and comfort with religious practices and communities 

Taught from a non-sectarian perspective this program helps you connect with colleagues, community members and friends who practice various religions.

Police officers who have attended Encounter’s Discovery Week have raved about the value of the program both professionally and personally.


“I had the opportunity to take the course in Summer 2022 and it gave me newfound appreciation of the impact religions have on our daily lives. Brian is a wealth of knowledge and his lectures were easily digestible.”

Gul Mohammad, Niagara Police
