Community Policing

Port Coquitlam has two Community Police Stations that are operated in conjunction with Coquitlam RCMP and offer a variety of community-based programs and services.

Staffed by volunteers, the stations are places where people can get help reporting minor offenses or learn about crime prevention and community safety. The stations do not provide emergency services.
