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.
April 25, 2015 is the 20th Anniversary of 'Keep Vancouver Spectacular'. Are You In?
On June 28, 2015 the WECHCPC is competing in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge. Our goal is to raise $10,000 so our organization can continue to bring you the quality services we have been known to deliver. WECHCPC volunteers will be walking or running in the Scotiabank 5K and running the Half-Marathon. Please visit our fundraising page to donate either to our general fund or to sponsor one of our run/walk participates. Your contribution is invaluable. To donate, click the Scotiabank logo above.
Beginning May 26th, the WECHCPC will host its annual Bike Safety Days monthly across the West End, Coal Harbour, and Stanley Park. Visit us at any -or all - of our Bike Safety Day locations for free bike ID engraving, information and brochures about safe cycling in the city, and to pick up a free mini-tire pressure gauge. The first two events will take place during Vancouver Bike To Work Week: May 26th at Nelson Park and May 28th at Devonian Harbour Park. Both events will take place from 3:30pm to 7:00pm.

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.
