Career In Law Enforcement

“The police are the public, and the public are the police” are words once uttered by the father of modern policing, Sir Robert Peel, during his rein as Home Secretary for the United Kingdom in the 19th Century.  These words are as relevant today as they were then! 

For the law enforcement community of the 21st Century to continue to meet its obligation of providing a safe environment for our citizens to raise their families and our business community to conduct commerce, it is vitally important to continually recruit the best men and women from all walks of life.   

The Seal Beach Police Department is committed to recruiting only the best officer candidates and support staff to meet our obligation to provide professional law enforcement services to our community.  In doing so, we continually assess our organizational goals and objectives and balance them with the needs and concerns of the community we serve.   

The Seal Beach Police Department actively recruits from only the top regional law enforcement Academies, Universities, Colleges, and associated law enforcement agencies for those willing to dedicate their professional lives to providing only the best law enforcement services to the citizens and visitors of Seal Beach.
