Community Policing and Volunteer Programs

Coquitlam RCMP's community and crime prevention programs are based on the belief that police can only be effective when engaged, informed citizens get involved in the safety of their homes, businesses and neighbourhoods.  Volunteering with the Coquitlam RCMP is a great way to:

So whether you are a young adult considering a career in law enforcement; a retiree looking for a way to use your skills and experience to give back to your community; a recent immigrant wanting to meet new people and get to know your new home; or just someone who wants to help the police create safer, healthier neighbourhoods the Coquitlam RCMP has volunteer opportunities that will help you reach your goals while supporting the police working to reduce crime and enhance public safety.

To apply for a volunteer position fill in the attached document and return in-person to 2986 Guildford Way, Coquitlam. Bring valid, government photo ID or email Coquitlam_Volunteer_Recruitment@rcmp-grc.gc.ca. An actual-size, colour scan or photo of your valid photo government ID must be included.
