The City of Coquitlam contracts the RCMP to provide police services. Coquitlam shares these services with the City of Port Coquitlam, a partnership that results in a top-quality, seamless and affordable police service for both communities.
Using a comprehensive service delivery model, the Coquitlam RCMP team engages in a broad range of projects, programs and initiatives aimed at reducing crime, disorder and calls for police service while enhancing public safety and satisfaction with police.
The three components of that model are:
- Reactive and response-oriented policing activities like general duty patrol, the investigations undertaken by the Serious Crimes Section, and the on-scene and post-incident support provided by Victim Services Unit. These programs and services ensure that responding to calls, investigating crime and supporting victims and witnesses of crime and trauma are top priorities.
- Proactive and strategic policing initiatives like the Crime Reduction Strategy, the Community Police Station program and the Community Response Team. These approaches recognize that in order to identify and effectively resolve important public safety issues, police have to be connected to and working in partnership with the communities they serve.
- Regional and integrated policing teams like the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT), the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) and the integrated police dog and forensic identification services. These teams ensure that borderless policing approaches are in place to effectively and affordably address the borderless crime and safety issues that affect all communities in the Lower Mainland.
The Coquitlam RCMP team works in partnership with the City and its staff to make Coquitlam a healthy, vibrant and safe community for residents, businesses and visitors.
