The Ottawa Police Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) wants you to get involved in policing by helping with decisions, projects and events that matter.

  • Work as a team with others and police to help make Ottawa safer
  • Make new friends
  • Help make the OPS more youth-friendly
  • Become more aware of youth issues and get involved in solutions
  • Build your social skills and résumé, free food, bus tickets, and other perks!

The Ottawa Police Service Youth Advisory Committee will form part of a broader youth engagement strategy and encourage a police-youth relationship by providing a youth voice to Ottawa Police and facilitate greater input and involvement by youth in Ottawa. Youth-led with police support and resources, the main purpose of the committee is to help the Ottawa Police to gain a broader understanding of youth by collaborating on events, programs and other initiatives.

If you are a group of youth who want their voices heard -- our YAC can come out and meet with you. We want to know what a safer Ottawa looks like to you and hear about your experiences with police and ideas you may have to share with us.
