End Gang Life

Campus Safety & Security Services is dedicated to facilitating a safe and secure environment for all students, faculty, staff and visitors to our campus.  This includes addressing the root causes of criminality that may affect the safety and personal security of our campus community.  

As such, we support the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit-British Columbia in its efforts to end gang life through initiatives in education, prevention and awareness. Our End Gang Life webpage shares some of the valuable educational resources that may prevent young people from joining gangs, and encourage those involved in gang activity to leave that life.  If you or someone you know is involved in gang activity, please also consider referring them to the full list of resources available on the CFSEU-BC website.
