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.
Who's Watching It....When You're Not??
Distracted driving is now the second leading cause of car crash fatalities – ahead of impaired driving – and is the leading cause of rear-end crashes which often result in injuries. Police will be increasing enforcement throughout the province, and community volunteers will be conducting “cell watch” deployments to remind drivers to leave the phone alone. We can all do our part to make B.C. roads safer by leaving our phones alone and remaining focused on driving. You can show your support by displaying a “not while driving” decal on your vehicle as a reminder to yourself and other drivers to leave the phone alone (available at any ICBC driver licensing office or participating Autoplan broker locations).
Tickets are now available for the WECHCPC fundraiser "Murder at the Sands". This year we return to a Murder Mystery Dinner and your ticket includes dinner, an interactive show, raffle, and silent auction featuring the very best of the West End and Vancouver. The event will take place on Thursday November 6th at the Best Western Sands Hotel, 1755 Davie Street. Doors open at 6pm. To get your tickets for only $75.00, click the picture above, or call 604-717-2924.
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 email@example.com 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.
