For almost five years, our Neighbourhood Police Officer, Jason Doucette, has been building positive relationships with residents, visitors, and businesses in the West End and Coal Harbour. Jason’s care and concern for our neighbourhoods and the people here has been a feature of his tenure, which has helped to build positive connections between residents and the VPD. As he moves into a new role with the VPD, the volunteers and staff at WECHCPC thank him and wish him all the best!
