HASTINGS SUNRISE COMMUNITY POLICING CENTRE

Welcome to the HSCPC, where volunteers help you deal with crime and safety concerns, clean up trash and unwanted graffiti, promote the safety of young and old, and lead the way toward a better Hastings Sunrise for all.


Big Night with the Vancouver Giants

New season, new coach – but the same great deal for Vancouver Giants fans who support local youth programs by buying special tickets to the annual Big Night With the Giants game at the Pacific Coliseum on Friday, Nov. 21.

The special tickets are just $18 – for a package valued at $35 including hot dogs, refreshments and excitement for allages at a pre-game Hastings Sunrise Community Celebration starting at 6pm. Activities include a hockey-shoot-out for kids, face painting, balloon animals and more.


Who's Watching it Campaign

Although Vancouverites have experienced an overall decrease in crime over the last decade, thieves continue to prey on people not keeping a close eye on their belongings.

The most commonly stolen items include wallets, purses, and cell phones, as owners leave items unattended in libraries, coffee shops, night clubs, mall food courts and parks. Bicycle thefts continue to rise, up 19% in 2012, 11% in 2013 and almost 13% in 2014, compared to the same time last year.


Distracted Driving Campaign

Distracted driving is a leading cause of car crash fatalities in our province. Police statistics show that about a quarter of all car crash fatalities in B.C. in the last five years (2009 to 2013) were related to distracted driving. That’s an average of 88 deaths per year, making distracted driving now the second-leading cause of motor vehicle fatalities in B.C., behind speeding (105) and narrowly ahead of impaired driving (86).

The B.C. government banned the use of personal electronic devices (including talking on a hand-held cellphone and text messaging) while driving as of January 1, 2010.
