The West End-Coal Harbour Community Policing Centre is managed by volunteers under the direction of two full time employees. A Board of Directors governs the operations and the Vancouver Police Department assigns a Police Constable who assists with the programming within the catchment area. This Constable is called the Neighbourhood Police Officer or NPO.
The WECHCPC currently has volunteers from all over the lower mainland who are interested in making a difference in a community that matters to them. Applicants to Law Enforcement and First Responder departments find volunteering a great asset to their future career choice. If you have a few hours a month to spare and are interested in making a difference, please visit the Volunteer section for more information about the volunteering criteria.
