Crime Prevention











Hastings Sunrise Community Policing Centre (HSCPC) is committed to reaching out to the community with our crime prevention programs.


To ensure your safety and the security of your loved ones and property, remember that there are three components necessary for a crime to occur:

  • Victim
  • Offender
  • Opportunity

If you take away the opportunity, you will significantly reduce your chance of being a victim. You can control that opportunity.


Available resources include:

  • For crime prevention tips, visit the VPD Crime Prevention Tips website
  • Constable David Krenz of the Vancouver Police Block Watch has made a web series with many crime prevention tips. To go to his Youtube page, click here.
  • The Competition Bureau has also published a booklet called the Little Black Book of Scams that has a lot of information on how to protect yourself from the most common scams.


We encourage you to review the resources we have available so you can minimize your risk to crime and assist the VPD and HSCPC in making our district a safer place.


We are always interested in answering your questions about crime prevention and safety. Call us at 604 717 3584 or email
