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.
The WECHCPC Foot Patrol-What We Do
We are looking for 16 and 17 year old youths to join our Youth Action Initiative Program. We are the only Community Policing Centre in Vancouver with a program designed specifically for youths to assist with crime prevention and personal safety activities. You also get to do the fun stuff too - walk in parades, go to barbecues and volunteer appreciation events, and meet some great people from the Vancouver Police Department. Go to our Programs Page and search out Youth Action Initiative for information how to join.
Visit our office with your bicycle and in 5 minutes capture everything you need for the police and the community to help find your bike if it goes missing. With the app you record your serial number, which proves ownership and will help police locate you. Capture unique elements on your bike to make it easier for people to spot if it get stolen, and receive a 529 Shield – a tamper-resistant sticker that helps identify your bike.
The West End - Coal Harbour Community Policing Centre is a non-profit organization. We are core funded by the City of Vancouver, but our expenses reach far beyond. Without the support of the community, fundraising, and donations, our office wouldn’t be where it is today. If you would like to sponsor or donate to our organization, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or use the Paypal button above. 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.
