Workshop Day for Potential Applicants


The CPS Recruiting & Selection Unit is now offering potential applicants a day of mentorship through our application process.

The Calgary Police Service (CPS) is excited to host our first ever workshop day for potential applicants. This full-day program takes place at CPS Headquarters and will be facilitated by members of our recruiting and fitness units.

Throughout the day, participants will take part in instructional and physical activities related to the Alberta Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police Officers (A-PREP), the Behavioural Descriptive Interview (BDI) and the Alberta Police Cognitive Ability Test (APCAT).

This is a great opportunity to take advantage of several programs in one day!
