The Kitsilano Fairview Community Policing Centre (CPC) is a place where our volunteers and police officers meet with residents and business owners to discuss concerns and crime prevention. Our foot patrol, bike patrol, and office staff organize crime prevention programs in the community.

Our Neighbourhood Police Officer (NPO) can regularly be found patrolling our area.


Volunteers are the heart of our organization. Without the dedication of our volunteers, we would not be able to launch the programs and projects that help protect our community.

Our volunteers currently come from all over the Lower Mainland, and with many different backgrounds, but they all share a common desire to make our community a safer and better place to live and work.

We are currently looking for volunteers so we can expand our programs and hours of operation. Call us for more information.

Volunteer Guidelines

  • 18 years of age or older
  • be of good character
  • consent to and pass a criminal records check
  • available for approximately two to two-and-a-half hours per week (eight to ten hours per month) volunteer time


Staff, volunteers, and our Neighbourhood Police Officer record and respond to citizens’ crime and safety complaints and concerns.

We accept found property and provide information and referrals to community resources. We also receive valuable information about crime in the area, which has led to several arrests of known drug dealers.

We also work closely with City staff on civic-related complaints and concerns, like graffiti, garbage, abandoned vehicles, noise complaints, and damaged public property.

Community Outreach and Special Events

We go to many community events throughout the year at schools, community centres, and neighbourhood houses to give presentations, and to provide crime prevention and community policing information.

Foot and Bike Patrols

CPC volunteers patrol our neighbourhoods on foot or riding their bikes to increase presence in problem areas, and to record and report suspicious and criminal activity.

Volunteers do security checks of vehicles, looking for anti-theft equipment, and to see if they are stolen or abandoned. They also distribute crime prevention information, crime alerts, and information on CPC services.

Speed Watch

The Speed Watch program is run in conjunction with ICBC. Our volunteers set up radar equipment at “hot spots” throughout the community, where residents and concerned citizens have reported speeding vehicles. Vehicle speeds are displayed to motorists, and are recorded and forwarded to ICBC and the VPD to be analyzed.

Police officers often join us and pull over vehicles that continue to speed after being clocked on our radar.
