Want a career where every day is an adventure? Looking to be part of an extraordinary team with job security, great pay and a chance to make a difference in your community? If becoming a Police Officer is right for you, the Ottawa Police Service (OPS) has what you're looking for.

Policing is about working with people to ensure public safety through crime prevention and law enforcement. It's also about building relationships in the community and making a difference in the lives of people. Working as an Ottawa police officer demands both physical and mental skills. It's much more than a job - it's a rewarding career and lifestyle choice.

At OPS, we are continually looking to improve our capability to deliver service that is effective and responsive to the needs of our community. As such, the OPS is looking for men and women from all backgrounds and walks of life, including people of various races, cultures and religions or sexual orientations. Everyone who has a strong interest in becoming a police constable, and who feels that she/he meets the qualifications, is encouraged to apply. 

Before you apply, make sure you have visited either the New Recruit or Experienced Officer page to ensure you have all the proper documents ready. 

Please note that when you apply, you must answer all the questions and upload ALL documents in one session. Failure to do so will make you ineligible to re-apply for one year.

All applicants - new applicants and experienced officers - are required to use our
quick and easy online application.
