The Hastings Sunrise Community Policing Centre (HSCPC) is a non-profit volunteer organization that works in partnership with the Vancouver Police Department (VPD), the City of Vancouver, and community agencies. Our purpose is to develop and operate programs that address crime and safety issues in order to foster and maintain a safe and healthy community. Volunteers take part in a variety of programs and activities to engage the community, promote leadership, and assist with crime and safety concerns.
The Community Clean-up program is a year-round initiative that mobilizes volunteers and supports community members to remove litter and graffiti from Hastings Sunrise. Partners in the program are the City of Vancouver (COV) and the Hastings North Business Improvement Association (HNBIA). Volunteers will be responsible for conducting graffiti removal initiatives for local businesses in the Hastings Sunrise area. It’s a great way to make new friends while making a difference in the community.
