Civilian Beneifts
  • Step 1: Apply online

  • Step 2: Application Screening
    • Applications, resumes and cover letters will be reviewed to determine the applicants' qualifications in relation to the advertised job posting.
    • Applicants may be scheduled to complete job related testing.

  • Step 4: Interview
    The purpose of the interview is to determine whether the candidate has the qualifications necessary to do the job and the competencies needed to do the job successfully. The behavioral-based interviewing model is used and the interview panel consists of 2 or more members.

  • Step 5. Background Investigation
    The background investigation is a one-on-one interview held with a Police Investigator assigned to the applicant. The interview is approximately three hours in length and is conducted in a private office setting. Prior to the interview, the applicant will be provided with specific instructions as to what documentation he/she will be required to submit for their interview. This is not an interview that an applicant can prepare for. The Investigator will delve into various facets of an applicant's personal and professional life. Given the high level of confidentiality and the integrity, trust, and professionalism expected of all our members (police/civilian/volunteer), this interview is comprehensive and relevant. Upon completion of the interview, the Investigator will commence their investigation into an applicant’s suitability for employment with the Winnipeg Police Service.

  • Step 6: Applicants may be required to pass a medical examination or psychological assessment.

  • Step 7: Final Selection
    There are many factors that are taken into consideration when selecting the most suitable applicants. Selected candidates are offered employment, not selected candidates will be advised in writing of their eligibility to re-apply.
