The Citizen and Youth Police Academy is a great opportunity to learn directly from police officers about how different units and specialized sections at Surrey detachment work together on crime prevention and investigations, says Inspector Harm Dosange, Community Support and Safety Officer.
The course offers participants a unique insight on policing in our city, while helping to strengthen relationships between the community and police as part of a shared objective to enhance public safety.
