Become a naps officer.

The Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service serves 35 First Nation communities in the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation Territory. Our officers police an area that equals two-thirds of the province of Ontario, from the Manitoba border up the James Bay Coast over to the Quebec border. The Service has grown considerably in the last five years and will continue to do so in the near future.

NAPS is looking to hire individuals from the Aboriginal area we serve, or those individuals who have a demonstrated knowledge of NAPS and for the First Nation people and culture. Applicants are expected to be academically and physically strong and well prepared for the requirements of the Ontario Police College. We expect our officers to relocate to their assigned posting and invest in the community; in turn, NAPS will offer constables the opportunity for growth and development not readily available at other services. NAPS does not pay for officers to fly in and out of their communities on their days off, nor do we hire constables for two-year contracts. We are interested in hiring people who are serious about a policing career with our Service and who have truly considered what is required to be a NAPS constable.
