Coral Springs Police Department Announces Community Ambassador Program

Coral Springs, FL – The Coral Springs Police Department is looking for engaged citizens to serve as ambassadors for the newly formed Community Ambassador Program (CAP). Citizen distrust in law enforcement has increased nationwide over the last year. To prevent that distrust from becoming prevalent in the Coral Springs community, our police department worked to develop CAP. The mission of the program is to engage with ambassadors to build a stronger foundation, develop greater understanding, and improve transparency. As stated by Chief Clyde Parry, “Trust is the bedrock of any relationship. It is important that the public and the police have tough conversations to better understand each other’s point of view. I welcome tough conversations and controversial topics. Having open and honest conversations is the first step to understanding. Understanding leads to transparency and trust. That is what we seek with this program.”
