RCMP – Coquitlam Detachment

Policing and community safety-related services are provided by the Coquitlam RCMP detachment, which is shared with Port Coquitlam, Anmore and Belcarra. The Coquitlam RCMP team is made up of sworn police officers, civilian members of the RCMP, municipal staff and thousands of volunteers.

The City of Coquitlam shares the Coquitlam RCMP's costs and services with the City of Port Coquitlam – a partnership that provides both communities with effective, efficient and affordable policing.

Focusing on three long-term strategic outcomes - enhancing public safety, promoting community engagement and achieving organizational excellence - the Coquitlam RCMP's projects, programs and initiatives fall into the following three categories:

  1. Reactive and response-oriented policing includes responses to calls by 911 call-takers and uniformed General Duty and Traffic Services officers, as well as the work of support sections, such as Major Crimes and Victim Services. Most of the Coquitlam RCMP team either does this work directly or supports those that do.
  2. Strategic and proactive policing. Teams, like the Uniformed Crime Reduction Unit, the Community Response Team and Youth Section, go beyond policing's "enforcement" mandate to work on preventing and reducing crime and disorder as opposed to responding to incidents that have already happened. Partnerships with stakeholders in local government and community organizations are vital to the success of this work.
  3. Regional and integrated policing. Working with other law-enforcement agencies allows the Coquitlam RCMP to more effectively address "borderless" public safety, such as organized crime and gang violence, and access specialized services that require specific and costly training and equipment, such as police service dogs and forensic-identification services.

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.
