About the CPYF

The Calgary Police Youth Foundation is a registered charity with a purpose to educate children and youth about good citizenship, safe communities, policing and avoiding victimization and criminality. We accomplish this goal by supporting child-youth programming and community initiatives that provide education, prevention, early intervention and risk reduction resources for children and youth ages 5 to 18.

These seven programs are delivered by the Calgary Police Service (CPS) with the help of community partners such as the City of Calgary, Calgary Neighbourhoods, and Alberta Health Services.

We believe that the crime prevention, education, and intervention programs delivered by the Calgary Police Service and other community partners are best in class. They provide a blueprint model for other police services across Canada to follow and CPYF is proud to collaborate with Calgary Police Service for the benefit of children and youth in our city.
