Civilian Members:

Civilian members play an important role in the Greater Sudbury Police Service. Civilians hold positions in several branches such as Administration, Crime Analysis, Communications, Records, Human Resources, Courts, Finance, Planning, and Information Services.

Civilians are employed as permanent or temporary staff in both full- and part-time employment. Some positions involve two or three rotating shifts; therefore, in such cases, applicants must be prepared to follow a rotating shift schedule. Civilian careers are attractive to those interested in working within a policing environment, but not necessarily interested in becoming a police officer. The Greater Sudbury Police Service offers a professional environment where career development and advancement opportunities are available. An internal job posting system provides civilian members with an opportunity to apply for a promotion or a career change.
