About the Asia Advisory Board

We are volunteers from Asian communities in Calgary who come together to advise the Calgary Police Service (CPS) about various matters, and work collaboratively with the police towards the collective goal of bettering service for Asian Calgarians.

The Asia Advisory Board is composed of community members with cultural knowledge, lived experience and relationships who assist CPS in improving their service to all Calgarians. The board performs an independent advisory function to the CPS membership about community needs and communicates progress back to the community. The board works with the CPS to ensure they are serving all members of the community equitably, and works to help change policing culture to value diversity through communitydriven solutions
