Vaccination Requirement: 

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to significant health and safety risks in the workplace. SPS has implemented multiple actions, programs, and safety measures to address these risks. The Public Health Officer and other government officials have repeatedly affirmed vaccination as the most effective protection against COVID-19.

SPS continues to implement precautions for the protection of the health and safety of its employees and those with whom they interact from the hazards to health, safety, and life posed by COVID-19.  Vaccination is a key element in the protection against the hazards to health, safety and life posed by COVID-19.

SPS provides a safe and healthy workplace.  As part of SPS’s commitment, it requires new hires to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 as a condition of employment.  An individual is fully vaccinated 7 days after they have received all required doses of an approved vaccine. An approved vaccine means a COVID-19 vaccine that has been approved for use by Health Canada.

SPS is committed to meeting its obligations under the Police Act, BC Human Rights Code, the Workers Compensation Act, and BC Employment Standards

If a job applicant progresses to a step in the hiring process where they will be required to have in person contact with an SPS employee, contractor, or other applicants, they will be required to provide proof of vaccination (i.e., government-issued documentation which indicates that they have been vaccinated with an approved vaccine) to the SPS in advance of that in person contact.


Why Join Surrey Police Service?

We are Safer, Stronger, Together

Be among the first to join the Surrey Police Service where there is pride in service, opportunity to make a difference and redefine community safety, competitive compensation, and a culture that supports health and wellness, diversity and inclusion.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are critical to our success. SPS is a diverse, modern and innovative police service that reflects the community we serve. As we recruit and hire the most qualified police officers and civilian staff, with a broad range of skills, knowledge and abilities, we will do so with a lens of diversity.

In our commitment to provide a safe, healthy and inclusive work environment where everyone is valued and is able to fully contribute to the SPS’s mission, the Surrey Police Board has established a Human Rights and Respectful Workplace Policy.  Our diverse and equitable workplace is free from discrimination, harassment and disrespectful behaviour (including bullying), and is supportive of individual dignity, positive self-esteem and mutual respect.

Everyone has a role in meeting this commitment, including job applicants, so please take the time to review the Policy as you seek a career with SPS. Foundational to our Policy is the belief that we will treat each other as we wish to be treated, in alignment with the SPS’s values.

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.
