The Community Outreach Program covers a broad base of initiatives and helps strengthen the Strathcona Community Policing Centre’s relationship with the community, and community members relationships with each other. A community that knows and cares for each other and watches out for each other, is a safer one. A role of the Community Outreach Program is to promote robust community engagement and to provide a bridge between the community and the Vancouver Police Department.
