The Burnaby RCMP organizes the City of Burnaby into four districts for operational purposes and as a way to consult with the communities about specific public safety concerns unique to their communities. These geographical areas are defined by Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest and have a Community Police Office (CPO) within each of the defined areas. The district boundaries are defined by the following borders:
District 1 - Between Burrard Inlet to the Trans Canada Highway and Holdom Avenue west to
District 2 - Between Burrard Inlet to Trans Canada Highway and from Holdom Avenue east
to North Road.
District 3 - Trans Canada Highway south to Marine Drive/10th Avenue and from
Gilley/Sperling Avenue east to North Road.
District 4 - Trans Canada Highway south to the Fraser River and from Gilley/Sperling
Avenue west to Boundary Road.
Each District Community Police Office (CPO) in Burnaby has a senior police officer overseeing the daily operations of the Community Response Team (CRT) police officers assigned to that CPO and a City of Burnaby employed Office Coordinator, who supervises and coordinates the volunteers and citizen-based programs.
Each CRT works collaboratively with citizens in the community, local, provincial, federal agencies and City of Burnaby Departments to address public safety concerns. Under this community-policing service delivery model, these community-based police officers, office coordinators and volunteers serve as a primary crime prevention and law enforcement resource for the citizens in the four districts they serve.
These districts also play an important role in the Detachment’s Crime Reduction Strategy. It allows the Crime Analysts an organized way to track and relay information about crime and disorder to all members, volunteers and City staff of the Burnaby RCMP.
