The president's message

Community involvement and volunteerism are the keys to enhancing understanding and cooperation between the Chinese community in Vancouver and the Vancouver Police Department. We are fortunate to have as founders the Chinese Benevolent Association, the Chinese Cultural Centre, Vancouver Chinatown Merchants Association, the Chinese Freemasons and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Through their continued involvement combined with a team of enthusiastic and hardworking volunteers we are able to deliver many programs. These include programs designed to improve safety, address safety issues for different age groups and , because we are located in Chinatown, we take an active role in making it a more vibrant and attractive place for residents, visitors and businesses. Success leads to growth and this growth comes with financial challenges. Although we receive government funding, this is contingent on us raising money on our own and we are always looking for sponsors, donors and volunteers to enable us to continue our work. Please look at the safety tips, look at the type of programs that we offer and look at the testimonies from our sponsors and volunteers. I hope that you too will be inspired to volunteer, make a financial contribution or in some other way support us.

Finally, or perhaps this should come first, I want to encourage you all to personally take a more active role in making our community safer by reporting to us, or directly to the police, if you have any concerns regarding an ongoing activity involving criminal or suspicious behaviour. This is our community. The police can only do so much and we need to do whatever we can to assist them. If you see a problem and do nothing you are condoning criminal behaviour. Reporting is easy and confidential and can be done right from this website under "Reporting". Thank you.
