    Abdirizak Karod Executive Director | Somali Centre for Family Services

    I have known Abdul as a young man when he volunteered at our center helping new Canadians adjust to their new home, and when he joined the police service in Ottawa, he became a champion for community and police relations.

    Matt Skof Former President | Ottawa Police Association

    Abdul and I met many years ago when we were both in policing. His professionalism and strong work ethic never wavered; he has applied these characteristics to every endeavour he focuses on.

    Cameron MacLeod Executive Director | Carlington Community Health Centre

    I have known Abdul for almost 20 years, and have followed his career from youth worker to a police officer to his latest venture into consulting. He is a straight-shooter: determined, honest, and hard-working. Abdul is a community leader – respected, trusted, and committed.

    James Malizia Retired RCMP | Assistant Commissioner

    I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of working with Abdul during his time with the RCMP. His community based approach and advice was invaluable in enhancing relationships and trust with our diverse communities.

    Mohamed Mostefa Former President | Assunah Muslim Association

    Abdul and I go back for more than 20 years. And over these years during my work with our Muslim community in Ottawa, I always benefited from his solid guidance, advise and feedback.
