Recruitment and Selection
The Port Moody Police Department’s Recruitment and Selection practices ensure we use and maintain a consistent recruitment and selection process. These practices comply with employment legislation such as: Collective Agreements; Workers Compensation Act; Provincial Human Rights Code; and the Employment Standards Act.
A recruitment strategy is developed for each vacant position. This strategy includes advertising both internally and externally for interested and qualified candidates. External advertisements may consist of a wide range of advertisements such as: advertising on our Department’s website; local newspapers; provincial newspapers; and networking within the police community.
Short-listing and Interview Process
For each advertised position, a Selection Panel is appointed and will consist of at least two individuals. The Selection Panel will review all submitted job applications and create a short-list of 3 to 5 best candidates. These candidates will be interviewed by the Selection Panel and subjected to a competency-based interview process. The Selection Panel may conduct multiple interviews with the short-listed candidates to determine the overall best suited candidate.
The Selection Panel will then submit their recommendations for hiring to the Deputy Chief Constable. If approved by the Deputy Chief Constable, the successful candidate will be asked to complete a Support Staff application form and the police background checks will commence. Only individuals who pass the police background check will be offered the advertised position.
The following Support Staff positions are available:
