Bui has been with the Toronto Police Services since 2003. He worked in the Organized Crime Unit and on the Homicide Squad. He welcomes his most recent position as Staff Sergeant.
“I believe it is important for our Community Response Unit Officers to forge new partnerships and strengthen existing ones.” – Tam Bui
Looking at his Twitter feed, he supports many community events like school watch presentations, charity fundraisers, safety seminars, and catching the odd sporting events like the Grey Cup or a Raptors game. There is a personal connection for Bui here too in Liberty Village. He once called our community home.
“Our second home was here in Liberty Village. We chose this neighborhood becuase it is a downtown ‘city’ neighborhood. I come from a family of graphic designers and the artistic undercurrent of LV is exciting!” – Tam Bui
