Community Outreach Officers
The Vancouver Police Department is committed to a community policing philosophy which involves outreach and relationship building with members of our community. This includes building relationships with communities that are often under served or disenfranchised due to various barriers such as language, cultural differences, cultural misunderstandings, mistrust or fear, or limited access to information.
The Vancouver Police Department has a team of Community Outreach Officers who act as liaisons to various community leaders and residents to build relationships, increase trust and provide important information about law enforcement and the Vancouver Police Department. These officers often work with members of the Chief's Diversity Advisory Team to connect with the various community members that may need their assistance. The Community Outreach Officers take on this responsibility as a collateral duty to their regular assignments within the department.
