Careers with SPS
We're looking for people with a passion for community policing
Surrey Police Service (SPS) is looking for experienced officers, new recruits, and civilian employees who are passionate about community policing. People who are excited about the idea of building an innovative new police service from the ground up that is taking the best practices in policing and customizing them for Surrey. Individuals who are driven - like us - by the values of honour, integrity, respect, courage, compassion, and inclusiveness.
At SPS, we're fueled by a desire not only to maintain safe neighbourhoods, but to be engaged with the community we serve - to establish the partnerships that will make us all safer and stronger, and help to address the social issues underlying systemic problems. We're building a progressive police service that is responsive and accountable to its community and employees, founded in a strong culture of support and respect.
Over the next couple of years, SPS will be hiring over 800 police officers and a number of civilians. Most of the officers we hire will be experienced but we anticipate hiring and training roughly 100 new recruits as we grow.
We're looking for people who want to shape the future of policing in Surrey.
SPS has attracted experienced officers from across Canada. See why these team members joined.

SPS will hire in phases
SPS is building its team of officers and civilian employees in phases, both to effectively manage the large-scale recruitment effort, and to align our hiring with our phased deployment into police operations. In November 2021, during the first phase of Surrey's policing transition, the first group of experienced SPS officers began working in the community alongside the Surrey RCMP, and in 2022 the first group of new recruits began training.
Our job postings will be phased accordingly. If you don't see the position you are looking for among our current opportunities, please check back often and follow us on social media to stay up-to-date on our new postings. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
