Join us, we're hiring

The Ottawa Police Service is committed to having a workforce that reflects the community it serves. To achieve this, we recruit and retain the most qualified police officers, civilian members and volunteers, while addressing the need for diversity (e.g. gender, race, language ability, sexual orientation and knowledge of other cultures or religious beliefs).

Please review this website and attend one of our recruitment information sessions.

By having a diverse workforce, we increase our chances of being able to police successfully in a society that consists of multiple ages, faiths, races, lifestyles, needs, abilities, beliefs, opinions, genders and sexual orientations.
