An Oceanside Police Officer enjoys the benefits of working in a growing and diverse beach community. We are one of the last Southern California cities where you can live, work, and play all in the same community.
A variety of opportunities are available within the Police Department, giving a department member the ability to serve our community within a variety of career paths.
The Department fosters an environment of unity, family, and continued self-improvement. Tuition reimbursement is available for those wishing to further their education, shift-differential pay for particular work schedules, and additional pay for some specialized assignments. Additionally, the Department participates in a Citywide mentoring program designed to enrich employees’ work experience and provide for personal and professional development.
