Welcome to the Community Advocacy Alliance (CAA)
Who We Are:
The CAA is a benevolent organization, founded in 2015 by concerned citizens committed to providing support to individuals adversely affected by governmental actions, bureaucracies, and agencies.
Established in 2015, the CAA originated from the partnership of former Police Chief Commissioner Kel Glare AO APM and former Police Inspector Ivan Ray. Both, even well into retirement, passionately believed in the value of programs benefiting youth. Kel Glare introduced the Police in Schools Program, and Ivan Ray introduced the Blue Light Disco.
The CAA evolved from this partnership and has broadened its function to address a wide variety of issues of concern to the community. This evolution brings together the unique skills of former police (600 years of experience) and a range of professionals from various disciplines.
Membership is open to individuals with good character, excluding serving police officers to maintain impartiality. Our diverse membership includes retired executive police officers, business executives, legal professionals, psychologists, medical experts, academics, and entrepreneurs.
We represent broader community concerns related to law and order matters, functioning as a service of last resort while remaining strictly non-partisan.
What We Do:
Our work spans various categories, including legal, law enforcement, mental health, military veterans, road safety, illicit drugs, and corruption.
Service to the Community:
Operating for nearly a decade, the CAA provides an average of 8-900 hours of service to the community each month. All our services are offered at no cost to recipients, reflecting our commitment to benevolence.
Join us in making a difference. Explore our website to learn more about our mission, services, and how you can contribute to the community through the CAA.
