Why Surrey Police Service?
Build • Serve • Protect
Be among the first to join the Surrey Police Service where there is pride in service, opportunity to make a difference & redefine community safety, multiplicity within its jurisdiction (urban, rural & industrial), competitive compensation and a culture that supports health and wellness, diversity and inclusion. We value the health, safety and wellness of our employees and their families.
Diversity is critical to our success; a diverse organization will reflect the community we serve and is the foundation of a modern, innovative police service. As we recruit and hire the most qualified police officers with a broad range of skills, knowledge, and abilities, we will do so with a lens of diversity. We view diversity in terms of gender, sexual identity, ethnicity, education, background, culture and the unique life experiences every police officer and civilian brings to the job.
We recognize and embrace the considerable benefits that can come from diversity: improved organizational decision making, fewer blind spots, broader perspectives and ideas, a different approach to issues, and most importantly, a culture of respect, inclusion, and acceptance.
