CFSEU-BC’s Gang Intervention & Community Engagement Team
Policing is a partnership between the community and those we serve
As part of its mandate, the CFSEU-BC is committed to a community policing philosophy which involves outreach and relationship building with all members of our community. As such, the CFSEU-BC’s Gang Intervention & Community Engagement Team, which is a part of the CFSEU-BC’s Community & Public Affairs Section and the End Gang Life initiative, was established in 2016 to positively promote the unit and engage the public. This includes both building relationships with individuals and communities as well as supporting police agencies across the province in the wide spectrum of engagement, prevention, education, intervention, suppression, and enforcement strategies.
The CFSEU-BC Gang Intervention & Community Engagement Team
Policing is a partnership between the community and those who serve. We are very fortunate to have many interested and active community partners who wish to work with police as we work to make British Columbia Canada’s safest province. We actively support and work directly with a number of community organizations to address the many underlining issues which are at the heart of many gang-related crime issues which exist today.

Sgt. Jag Khosa
Sergeant Khosa has been involved in policing for the past 12 years in both B.C. and Alberta; and originally was member of the Organized Crime Agency of British Columbia in 2005, before joining the Edmonton Police Service. He came back to OCABC in 2011.
As an OCABC member working within the CFSEU-BC, Sgt. Khosa has been a part of many investigations relating to homicides, international drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, and other activities of organized crime groups in order to disrupt and suppress gangs and organized crime groups across Canada.
In 2016, Sgt. Khosa transitioned into the role of Gang Intervention Officer for the CFSEU-BC. He wants to put greater emphasis on raising public awareness by educating parents and youth with knowledge and arming them with the appropriate skills in order to make our communities safer. He believes that it is imperative to spread the message that we as a community can take an active role at a preventative stage and no one has to fight this battle alone. Helping youth make positive changes starts with one-on-one intervention. Parents who become involved with their child’s life from an early age have a better chance of keeping their children away from the negative influence of gangs.
In his current role as the Gang Intervention Officer for the CFSEU-BC, Sgt. Khosa is responsible for building stronger relationship with communities and other partner agencies to develop a wide spectrum of engagement, prevention, education, intervention, suppression, and enforcement strategies.
