Paulson's first posting was to Chilliwack Detachment. He spent the next 19 years in various RCMP postings in British Columbia before being transferred to National Headquarters in Ottawa.

Commissioner Paulson has shown resistance to commenting on proposed changes to the way police deal with marijuana offences. He was quoted as saying "I'm a simple country cop you know. I'm in the business of policing and others are in the business of policy and law. However, the following year he opined "The people that use drugs are not the people we got to be bothering, right? We’ve got to be sort of helping them."

Paulson is scheduled to retire on June 30, 2017 as per memo released within the RCMP.
