The Ottawa Police Service Youth Advisory Committee forms part of a broader youth engagement strategy and encourages 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.

YAC can also come out and meet with your youth group: If you are a group of youth who want their voices heard — YAC would love to talk with you. The OPS wants 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 them. Call 613-236-1222, ext 8676 or send an email to:
