WVPD Youth Committee (SWAT)

The West Vancouver Police Department’s Youth Committee’s objective is to create a safe environment where youth feel that they belong, are valued and free to share their perspectives with others in the group. Our group is open to and supports all of our community’s youth and strives to be barrier-free. The primary focus of the committee is to develop the ability of our youth to communicate, lead and self-regulate at school, work and in social settings.

We support our youth to develop:

  • Team-building and social skills
  • Relationships with community role models
  • Confidence and resiliency
  • Compassion for others, and
  • A broader world view

We achieve this by meeting with community leaders, volunteer activities that support the community, police related learning opportunities and outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and canoeing with an emphasis on being barrier free. For application and/or information, please Email the Community Services Team.
