What are you waiting for?
Saanich Police Application for New Recruits
All applicants will begin a through and detailed process of screening and suitability. This will begin with submitting a comprehensive package of personal information and hopefully ending with an offer of employment. If you are successful you will attend the police academy at the Justice Institute of BC in New Westminster for basic training, which is called Block I training. You will then return to SPD for Block II where you will be field trained by an experienced officer. During this training, recruits apply knowledge and training learned in Block I to real life situations and calls for service. All field trainers are experienced and trained to provide effective coaching, mentoring, and support to this very important developmental stage in a recruit’s career. Upon completing Block II field training all recruits return to the police academy for Block III. Upon successful completion of Block III you will graduate with your class and return to SPD where you will begin your career in our Patrol Division.
