POLICE CHIEF KASH HEED: REACH OUT TO YOUNG PEOPLE, PLAY MORE POSITIVE AND ACTIVE ROLE IN THEIR LIVES

By RATTAN MALL

West Vancouver Police Chief Kash Heed on Tuesday appealed to South Asian adults to take a more positive and active role in the life of a young person.

Addressing a large South Asian audience at the 2nd Annual Celebration of Education and Family in Surrey, Heed, the first Indo-Canadian chief of police in the country, said: “It could be your son or daughter, your niece or nephew, a young neighbour, or even someone you meet through a program such as Big Brothers and Big Sisters … it doesn’t matter. It is all about building positive relationships. This is how we as a community are going to leave the greatest legacy. Extending an olive branch is what needs to happen before we can expect our young people to reach out in response. It is on our shoulders, not theirs, to make that first move.”

The event was hosted by the SASAT (South Asian Student Advocacy by Teachers) committee, a standing committee of the Surrey Teachers’ Association, and interested teachers from the Delta School District. It was jointly sponsored by the Surrey Teachers’ Association and the Surrey School District.

Heed, who’s been an outstanding role model for Indo-Canadians, spoke of his struggles, hardships, and triumphs. He noted: “It has taken me 30 years of law enforcement experience and blood, sweat, and tears to get to the position of police chief, and I owe much of my success to my family.”

POLICE CHIEF KASH HEED: TAKE A MORE POSITIVE AND ACTIVE ROLE IN THE LIFE OF A YOUNG PERSON

Recently West Vancouver Police Chief Kash Heed delivered the keynote address at the CORSA Foundation at its annual Kohinoor Diamond Ball in Vancouver where Attorney General Wally Oppal presented scholarships to South Asian youths, as reported last week in The VOICE.

Heed, who is an outstanding role model for Indo-Canadians, had some valuable advice for Indo-Canadian parents and their children, and The VOICE urges you all to read his address very carefully:

It has taken me over 28 years of law enforcement experience and my blood, sweat, and tears to get to the position of Chief Constable, and I owe much of my success to my family.

A Warrior’s Religion – teaser clip

March 27th, 2008 mani

In mid January I was asked to speak at a forum on Gang Violence being held at Langara. I was asked to speak out on the issue as well as showcase some of my footage. At first I was reserved as this would be my first live showing of any of my footage. Ultimately, I decided that this would be a great opportunity to show youth that you can use art along with activism to convey a strong message.
