Welcome to the CSPD Civilian Careers website. The CSPD offers opportunities and excitement for those choosing to serve our community.  Since our humble beginnings in the late 1800's, the CSPD has maintained a standard of excellence that you would be proud to join.

We embrace a proactive policing or Community Oriented Policing philosophy, rather than only crime response.  We seek to understand and focus on why crimes are committed and find ways to remove the conditions that are most likely to lead to criminal activity. We expect our officers and civilian staff to exhibit this philosophy and actively create community and police partnerships that identify problem and craft solutions.
