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?

The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) has what you're looking for.

At OPS, we are continually looking to improve our capability to deliver service that is effective and responsive to the needs of our community. 

Working within the field of law enforcement can be both physically and mentally demanding, highly visible, unpredictable, and requires a great deal of resilience of both our Sworn and Civilian members.

A career in policing as either a sworn or civilian member is incredibly rewarding with lots of variety, opportunities and the ability to give back to the community in which we live, work and play.

We encourage you to look at the opportunities available on this website to see what may suit you.
