Anne Larsen, Outreach Services Coordinator, Olympia Police Department

Anne Larsen is the Outreach Services Coordinator at the Olympia Police Department (OPD) where she manages the Crisis Response Unit and Familiar Faces program. A Minnesota native, Anne moved to Olympia in 1992 to attend The Evergreen State College (BA & MPA) and never looked back. Anne strongly believes in the power of employing peers in her programs to create supportive relationships based on trust and respect in an effort to increase empowerment, improve personal success, and build linkages to needed community resources. OPD’s progressive and innovative approach to policing and community service rely on the truth that changed people change people, and our OPD models have the potential to not only help transform individual lives, but to change the culture of law enforcement from the inside out.
