What do they mean “racialized”? 
 

ra·cial·ize: make racial in tone or character.

"the ways in which language is used to colonize, racialize, and commodify the Other"

categorize or divide according to race.

"a highly racialized society"

It’s more timed-down on their website -

“The Ottawa Police Service continuously strives to deliver service that is effective and responsive to the needs of our evolving community. As such, we are looking for people of various, diverse backgrounds and experiences to complement our service as we strive to reflect the community we serve.  Everyone who has a strong interest in becoming a sworn member of the Ottawa Police, and who feels that they meet the qualifications, is encouraged to apply.”

Nothing new, just the way Ontario is diversifying it's Police forse since decades in order to have representation in the diverse community. 15 years ago the OPP was looking to add officers who new another language besides English and French.

Being bilingual is a deployable skill. Someone’s sex or skin color not so much.

Canadian police have a /real/ problem with treating First Nations poorly, they've got a history of dumping them out in the middle of nowhere and leaving them to freeze to death in the cold. Adding more diversity might help nip that sort of behavior in the bud and bring some honor back to the profession.

Wrong. With a diverse population we need diverse police represantation. Hell we even hired a few years ago one ugly and one fat cop.

Could you elaborate on the “deployable skill” someone’s skin color is?

Deployable is your interpretation. Is there any line in the text you posted that this is what they are exclusivly looking at?
