The City of Edmonton is a rapidly growing, vibrant city of more than one million people. To keep up with this growth, the City’s main police agency, the Edmonton Police Service (EPS) has grown as well. Today, the EPS is better trained, better educated and more diverse than at any other time in history. We are proud to have an engaged workforce that is committed, motivated, and efficient.
We are a leading police organization that encourages creativity, innovation, exploring new ways of working, and implementing better processes to increase output. Our technological capabilities allow officers and support staff to be better equipped and intelligence-led when problem solving and dealing with day-to-day responsibilities.
The EPS has approximately 2,500 employees (both sworn and non-sworn) committed to ensuring that the City of Edmonton is a safe place to work and live. With more than 1,780 police officers, the EPS provides around-the-clock safety and security to Edmonton residents.
