The men and women of the Whittier Police Department take great pride in providing quality law enforcement services to the residents and businesses in the communities of Whittier and Santa Fe Springs. We have a long standing tradition of providing policing services in partnership with the members of our community.

The Whittier Police Department has a variety of professional positions available to qualified men and women who seek a challenging career and stable future in law enforcement. We are looking for applicants who desire a career in public service, believe in community oriented policing, enjoy cultural diversity, and are willing to be part of a top-notch team.

Law enforcement however, is a unique and challenging career choice. This job is not for everyone. It is not a job you simply “try out.” If you have never researched police work before and know nothing about law enforcement, we highly recommend you take a detailed look into what we really do, how we do things and what it takes to do them. The job of a police officer is complicated and requires swift decision making, compassion, shift-work, personal sacrifices and the ability to handle complex life threatening situations.

A career with the Whittier Police Department will mean many things to you: opportunity to make a real difference to the people in your community; variety of work and assignments; satisfaction with your career; and pride in being part of an outstanding progressive law enforcement organization.
