African Community Liaison Committee


The Chief's Community Advisory Council brings together Edmontonians of diverse cultural or social backgrounds to help guide the police service in its delivery of services to the community.

The African Community Liaison Committee (ACLC) serves as a sub-committee to the Council.

Our mandate is to identify, discuss and address common issues and trends which may impact the quality and effectiveness of community policing and public safety.

Please take time to review the links to the right for information about the ACLC, its mandate, upcoming community events, volunteer contributions and more. As new information is submitted, the site will be updated.

Thank you.
