How do I...
If the crime you are reporting is an emergency, call 911.
If the crime you are reporting is not an emergency, you can call the non-emergency line at 604-525-5411 or attend our Front Counter at 555 Columbia Street, New Westminster, BC.
Take a positive step towards a better New Westminster by volunteering for one of the many programs that the Crime Prevention Unit has to offer. Volunteers’ involvement is not only essential to the success of the community, but also rewarding for those who participate. Volunteers gain a real satisfaction knowing that they play a key role in making their neighbourhood a safer and more enjoyable place for everyone.
If you have any questions you’re welcome to call us at 604-529-2528. We are not accepting applications at the moment, however, your name can be added to a wait list and we can contact you when we recruit volunteers again. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to the wait list.
