The Community Police Station (CoPS) program is a policing initiative first introduced to North Delta and Ladner in May 1992. In July 1994 the Tsawwassen CoPS office was added to the program and in 2007 Tsawwassen First Nation CoPS.
The strength of the Delta Police CoPS program is our volunteers who, along with the Station Constable, staff a store-front station. Working with the community, they focus on crime prevention and awareness and address crime issues such as vandalism, minor theft and youth problems. The volunteers and Station Constable also provide accessibility to the police and policing services in Delta. The CoPS offices help make policing accessible to the Delta community.
The ultimate goal of community policing is to provide our citizens a safe and pleasant place to reside.
As of 2013, North Delta CoPS has 149 volunteers, Ladner CoPS has 30 volunteers, and Tsawwassen CoPS has 39 volunteers. In total, Delta Police have approximately 218 volunteer community members which allows us to offer a wide range of programs to our community. These programs would not be as successful without the dedication and commitment from our volunteers.
