The Award winning Blue Mountains Community Policing Committee (CPC) is a volunteer organization that operates in partnership with the Blue Mountains OPP detachment and the Community. This influential and active group is dedicated to helping develop and encourage proactive policing activities and programs throughout the Community including the Community and Neighborhood Watch program (web site).
