The Council has facilitated the identification of 18 behavioural competencies – knowledge, skills and abilities for successful performance of general policing duties. These are detailed to 5 levels of proficiency, defining the expected behaviours as work increases in complexity and scope.
List of Behavioural Competencies found in the Competency Dictionary
Developing Self and Others
Planning and Organizing
These competencies are used in developing Competency Profiles – the profiles define the policing roles using some combination – usually 8 or 9 – of critical competencies drawn from the 3 competency categories.
Role task lists capture the work and competency profiles capture the “how” the competencies are applied to ensure the work is done well. Competency profiles function as occupation standards.
