Working together to build trust, hope and pathways forward

Sex Industry Liaison Officer, Constable Linda Malcolm, has worked with the Vancouver Police Department for 41 years. For most of this time, she was in plain clothes and working on the streets, predominately in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. She has worked with at-risk women and men for the last 16 years and with her infectious smile and warmth, has built an unprecedented trust within the community, providing a link between sex workers and the police through support and intervention. Four and a half of these were spent investigating Robert Pickton as part of the Missing Women’s Task Force.
