How Do I?

Apply Online

The Abbotsford Police Department is constantly evolving and expanding to meet Abbotsford's needs. We accept applications from qualified individuals and experienced officers year-round through our online application system.

We're looking for members who are team players but also independent thinkers; who are level-headed, resilient, positive, and willing to challenge themselves; who understand the important responsibility that comes with being a police officer and can embrace and uphold our values. We want people who share our goal of making Abbotsford the safest city in British Columbia.

Important: Please do not complete the online application process if you do not meet all of the applicant minimum requirements or if you are not prepared to fully commit to all stages of the process (outlined on the Selection Process page).

Please be aware that completing the online application does not guarantee entry into the selection process. After your online application is submitted, it will be reviewed by an APD member in the Recruiting Section. Competitive applicants will receive an email advising them they are moving forward in the selection process. Non-competitive applicants will receive an email advising them they were not successful in the process and the application will be closed.

Depending on the time of year your application is submitted and the ongoing needs of the APD, a response to your application may take several weeks. Email is our primary mode of communication during the initial stages of the selection process, so please ensure you provide the correct contact information and a valid email address when you complete the application. Also, ensure that your spam or junk mail filters are set to accept emails from @abbypd.ca. If your personal or contact information changes, please notify the APD Recruiting Section immediately.
