The Special Liaison Branch supports community policing with communities that are sometimes underserved. It is composed of the following:
The Special Liaison Unit provides “affiliate” officers on patrol throughout the city. The affiliate officers have volunteered to receive specialized training on diverse communities, their issues, and how to best serve them. They will continue to work in their home district but will receive coordinated support, information, and trainings through the liaison units.

In an emergency, or for immediate police response, always call 911. Once police are on the scene, a request can be made to contact an on-duty affiliate or liaison officer.
For other police services, such as to request that an affiliate or liaison officer attend a meeting or discuss other non-emergency issues, please contact the liaison offices. These offices are not staffed 24 hours a day, but all calls will be returned within one business day.
