Metro Vancouver Transit Police are looking offshore to fill at least a half dozen vacancies.
The search will be focused on officers in the United Kingdom who have transit police experience.
Transit Police spokesperson Anne Drennan says there's a lot of competition among all police detachments to find suitable new hires.
"Both municipal departments and the RCMP all across the country are dealing with the same pool of applicants and it is a finite pool so it can be very challenging for all departments to try and fill the spots they have vacant."
Transit police are tweeting the opportunity: "You'll receive excellent pay and benefits - you won't be disappointed!"
