Officer Career Development

Kingston Police is one of the largest of the medium size services, allowing Officers to have the best of both worlds – an organization small enough where everyone knows your name and yet large enough for Officers to have many opportunities for career development.

There are many specialized units within Kingston Police. These units are not direct entry and require specific training. Vacancies for these units are posted and officers who meet the eligibility and requirements may apply. Although there is no mandated length of time in these units, officers can expect multiple movements during their career to ensure there are opportunities to grow.
