Welcome to the West End - Coal Harbour Community Policing Centre
Crime Prevention By the Community, For the Community, Through the Community
Helping to Make Vancouver Canada's Safest Major City
Since 1997, the WECHCPC has been your local resource for answering the crime & safety concerns of our neighbourhood. No one knows the community better than the people who live, work, and play there. When community members join in partnership with the Vancouver Police Department, it means we can all live more safely and without fear. An active community is a safe community.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." (Margaret Mead)
The WECHCPC is driven by volunteer power; people from the community that have a personal attachment to the area and want to make it a better place for themselves and for others. Our success depends on you, your skills, your knowledge, and your experiences. Together we make a difference.
Don't become a statistic. Pick up your free pedestrian safety reflector while they last!

Without the support of the community, fundraising, and donations, our office wouldn’t be where it is today.

Your donations help us with everything from office equipment, foot and bike patrol essentials, uniforms, and the most basic necessities such as heat and power. Thank you to everyone who supports our Centre.
