Bridges to Brighter Futures
Bridges to Brighter Futures is a child and youth crime prevention, education and intervention Program which includes multiple and targeted community engagement initiatives led by the Calgary Police Service in collaboration with the Calgary Police Youth Foundation.
The commonality among all these initiatives is that there is an opportunity for children, youth, and their families to connect with the Calgary Police Service in a positive way in the communities where they live.
