Our Story


YouthLink Calgary Police Interpretive Centre is a cutting edge police museum unlike any other in North America. We are a non-profit organization where crime prevention, community policing, and history are at the heart of everything we do. We are proud to have earned awards for our innovative approach to crime prevention and public engagement.

At YouthLink, we’re passionate about teaching the community the information needed to protect themselves from crime. We strive to prevent future victimization and criminal behaviours and are proud to be a key pillar in the Calgary Police crime prevention and early intervention strategy. Our approach to education and our programs serve as a great foundation for educating families and youth in the community.

As a registered museum, our visitors are invited to explore several exhibits that focus on the historical and modern-day role that police play in our society. Our team and volunteers love to educate about all things policing, crime prevention, forensic science and true crime. Additionally, YouthLink houses the archives and collections of the Calgary Police Service and is a key research centre for police history.
