Get Involved - Community Police Stations

Community Police Station (CPS) volunteers in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam get hands-on experience in many facets of policing from writing reports and meeting the public to patrolling neigbourhoods to championing new initiatives.

The CPS program is a partnership between the Coquitlam RCMP and the cities of Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam. CPS volunteers are on the front lines of public safety working from the four Community Police Stations in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam as well as out in the community at events and on patrol. 
Each Community Police Station is a unique operation that offers a distinct range of public safety-related programs and services but all CPS's offer information on crime prevention and policing initiatives in the community. On a daily basis, CPS staff and volunteers are involved in a wide range of important public safety-related activities, including;

  • Bike and foot patrols to support crime prevention programs like Lock Out Auto Theft and Stolen Auto Recovery.
  • Taking non-emergency police reports at CPSs for minor incidents such as lost and found property.
  • Attending community events to do outreach and education and deliver public safety programs such as Child I.D.
  • Spearheading new initiatives to address real public safety issues, like the Bait Locker program.
