New Year, New Career

Opportunities Await at OPD

Many professions are struggling to fill positions and unfortunately, we are too. Having a full workforce is so vital to providing not only quality, but timely service to our community. It also gives us the necessary capacity to create new programs and expand existing programs so that we can improve connections within our community.

As someone who grew up in Oceanside and still lives here, I want to encourage our residents to consider a career with the Oceanside Police Department. Doing so, you will join a collection of very hard working, caring and compassionate professionals that strive to provide a high level of service throughout our City.

Please visit JOINOPD.NET to learn about job opportunities. We are currently hiring Cadets and Police officers and soon will be looking to hire Dispatchers and Records Technicians. There is so much career variety within the Police Department that we really do have something for everyone.

For High School and College students, we offer an Explorer Program and Internship opportunities that provide great introductory experiences in Law Enforcement. You can help make Oceanside a great place to live, play and work.

Lastly, thanks to the addition of our new Public Information Officer, Jennifer Atenza, we are making great strides on our social media platforms to help keep our community informed. Please navigate to OceansidePD on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube to follow the latest information from your Oceanside Police Department.
