Diversity Career Exhibition
The Winnipeg Police Service recognizes the need to provide opportunities for our growing Indigenous and diverse communities to serve in law enforcement. 
The Recruiting Section, in partnership with the Community Support Division, is hosting a two-day Diversity Career Exhibition on July 26th & 27th, 2018 at Winnipeg Police Headquarters. The event hosts Indigenous and newcomer community members interested in a career in law enforcement. 
Members will be providing information regarding volunteer, cadet, civilian and police officer career opportunities within the police service. The event includes an overview of the Winnipeg Police Service and a formal presentation outlining our selection and hiring process. The workshop aims to expose participants to a number of unique opportunities such as the physical abilities test, information sharing, demonstrations from specialty units and writing the police applicant exam. Participants will also observe first-hand, the day to day operations of the Winnipeg Police Service Headquarters Building.
Sixty-five people from in and around Winnipeg have been selected through a rigorous application and selection process and will be exposed to various aspects of policing as well as the testing process for being hired.
