We’re looking for talented and driven people to fill the diverse and challenging support positions in our police service. Support staff roles include analystis, court liaison officers, information management, administrative and managerial roles, and more.

Positions range from casual, part-time, full-time, temporary, and permanent in several unionized, exempt, and contract roles.
