Community Response Unit

The community services department of the Cobourg Police Services is the responsibility of Acting Sergeant Brent Allison who oversees the activities and conducts the following programmes:

A/Sergeant Allison is also the Media Liaison officer for the Cobourg Police Service.  

Values, Influences and Peers (V.I.P.) - This program is only provided to Grade Six students over eight sessions in each school year. 

This program covers issues such as Bullying and Drug Awareness. It is delivered in conjunction with other Youth resource organizations.

The Child Proofing is also done by select volunteers and consists of fingerprinting and photographing the child (with consent of the parents)

Police volunteers assist with the delivery of the Elmer the Safety Elephant program along with the Operation Lifesaver (railway safety) program.  

Criminal Investigation - Youth Crime

The Cobourg Police Service assigns one full-time officer to run the Youth Crimes department. This department works closely with the three high schools in the area and other social agencies that serve youth.

Our Service investigates all crimes that originate with youth: bullying, drugs and local theft, for example. The Cobourg Police Service feels that assigning one officer to the responsibility ensures efficiency and continuity, as local knowledge is essential to successful investigation and monitoring.

Liaising closely with the staff of the local High Schools and parole officers, and even sitting in some 'restorative justice' sessions, the Police know that by keeping in close touch with vulnerable youth and their teachers and mentors, we can keep as near as possible to youth crimes, thus ensuring a quick resolution of problems. Cobourg is well served by this process.
