Unlike some other similar volunteer programs, we have a very selective and rigorous recruiting process for our volunteers. Our experience is that the extra time and attention we put into selecting our volunteers ultimately leads to a successful team environment. Having said that, it does take longer to process volunteer applications as a result - we thank you in advance for your patience.
Top 5 Reasons To Join Waterfront CPC:
Unique: We are the only Transit community policing centre in North America.
Mentorship: Volunteers get to work under the guidance of Constable Miles Teitelbaum and many other police officers at the Metro Vancouver Transit Police
Public Safety: Through visibility and education, volunteers are able to contribute to a safe public transit system in Metro Vancouver.
Accessible Locations: Volunteers report out of our office at Waterfront Station as part of their volunteer patrols.
Community Engagement: Waterfront CPC volunteers attend numerous events every year, where they gain meaningful connections with the diverse communities within Metro Vancouver.
In just over two years of operations, we have had two volunteers hired as police officers with the Metro Vancouver Transit Police, two with the Vancouver Police Department, one with the West Vancouver Police Department, one with the New Westminster Police Department, two with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and one Sheriff with the British Columbia Sheriff Service. An incredible accomplishment for a young organization!
