Police aim to connect with aboriginal youth | Vancouver Sun

Uniformed organizers of The Blue Eagle Community Cadet program hope to help youth aged 12 to 15 to form bonds with officers. The two-hour weekly sessions will feature a mix of fun activities, cultural practices and exposure to other policing units. The program is being run in partnership with the Vancouver Police Department’s diversity, inclusion and Indigenous relations department and Vancouver’s Aboriginal Policing Centre (VAPC), and is put together “by Indigenous people, for Indigenous people,” said Norm Leech, executive director of the VAPC and member of the St’at’imc Nation. The program starts in March, and will provide Indigenous youth of all genders the opportunity for culturally connected mentorship, leadership skills and opportunities.  ___ About: Since 1912, the Vancouver Sun has cast a watchful eye on the events, issues and politics of the day – all with a unique West Coast perspective.
