District Community Police Offices (DCPO) – Volunteers

The Delta Police Department appreciates the energy, time and commitment given by our volunteers. Without their assistance the Delta Police would not be in a position to provide the wide number of programs and safety initiatives currently underway.

Our District Community Police Offices (DCPO) work with community members to promote safety and protect their neighbourhoods. The Delta Police Department has 3 District Community Police Offices located in North Delta, Ladner and Tsawwassen. These offices are a focal point of community engagement and continuously conduct community outreach for each District.

The DCPO have an assigned District Liaison Officer (DLO) along with Civilian Staff and Volunteers. The Civilian Staff and Volunteers work with the DLO to better solve community concerns and assist with various community initiatives and programs. The Volunteers work in programs such as Community Crime Watch, Speed Watch, Cell Watch, Bike Patrol, etc. Our Volunteers are a critical component of all our DCPO offices and contribute to making Delta a safer and better community.
