Dynamic and Team-Oriented Workplace
Calgary Police Service (CPS) is the third largest police service in Canada. The demographic of the organization is one that is young and innovative, providing compassionate and respectful service to the citizens of Calgary, a community of over 1.3 million. The composition of the service mirrors that of its citizenry. The work performed by the members of the organization is community centered. CPS members are proud of and, at the same time, humbled by the fact that year over year polling has confirmed that over 90% of the community is very satisfied by the service provided. Responding to over 800,000 calls for service, the 2200 member organization provides a high level of service. Shifts are fast-paced, often dynamic and call for leadership, courage, as well as, superior communication and problem solving skills.

If you are looking at Emergency Services, consider the Fire Department or RCMP
You will be working alongside some GREAT people. However, with the good comes the bad. This organization has significant internal bias issues to work through. Although HR reform was promised, it has never materialized. The organization is slowly crumbling internally. This will impact public safety in the long run. STAY AWAY!!

One rotten apple ruins the bunch
No process in place to hold a bad supervisor accountable for his actions. Employees are not treated with dignity and respect and have to choose to leave their positions because of this.

Good place to work
Spent 22 years at CPS; great people. Regardless of the current political climate, there will always be a need for police, and CPS is a great place to work!
