Metro Vancouver Transit Police is pleased to announce that the successful Blue Eagle Community Cadets program, launched in 2021 in partnership with Vancouver Police Department’s Diversity, Inclusion, and Indigenous Relations Section and the Aboriginal Policing Centre, will expand to Surrey.
The program, free for youth ages 12-15, focuses on Indigenous culture while building leadership skills in a safe and supportive environment. Currently operating out of Britannia Community Centre in Vancouver, the program has offered unique experiences to the young participants with the help of community partners, including a tour of Vancouver by airplane, camping and survival skills, attending local sporting events and participation in many activities that celebrate Indigenous culture.
In partnership with the Surrey RCMP, Surrey Schools, Options Community Services, and Surrey Crime Prevention, we are now proud to announce that the program will launch in Surrey at A. H. P. Matthew Elementary School on Thursday nights, starting with an Open House on January 27, 2022, 5:00-7:00pm. Everyone is welcome, and we hope to see you there!
