Community policing

(Source: Ottawa Police Service)

Community Policing is the process by which police and other community members partner to improve community wellbeing, safety and security through joint problem identification, analysis, response and evaluation.

Community Police Officers strive to be:

  • A primary focal point for problem solving in their assigned neighbourhoods;
  • A primary location of the community crime prevention initiatives and partnerships; and,
  • A hub for information dissemination and referrals.

Vanier’s Community Police Centre is located at 252 McArthur Rd. and can be reached by calling 613-236-1222 x5823. The neighbourhood’s community police officer is Cst. Vianney Calixte.
