The CCRA is very fortunate to have Kazi Anwar as our police liaison chair. Kazi’s experience as a civil servant within various levels of government spans over 20 years in senior management. His skills are widespread as he has worked in all aspects of both policing and investigation over the years.

Kazi brings an enormous amount of knowledge regarding public safety to the CCRA. Each month he attends a 43 Division community police liaison committee (CPLC) meeting in order to stay on top of policing issues in our community and neighbouring communities. These meetings are open to the public.

“I encourage everyone to attend at least one of the monthly CPLC meetings to learn about the public safety and initiatives within their community. Public safety is paramount in our society in building strong, cohesive, vibrant and safe communities,” he said. If you are interested in attending a CPLC meeting, please go to our Instagram page ccranews where you will find a link to 43 Division.

His reports are submitted and discussed with our board members at each CCRA executive board meeting. These detailed reports are also posted on our website under the “Reports” heading. Kazi has served as an executive board member with various not-for-profit organizations. He has been a guest speaker at many seminars and forums where he has delivered lectures about policing, public safety and its oversight at various educational institutions.

Kazi is the father of two young children and he loves living with his family in the Centennial community. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing. He also loves walking and bike riding along our beautiful waterfront trail.
