Commercial Drive Business Society Donates $2,000 to The Grandview Woodland Community Policing Centre

As part of their Neighborhood Safety initiatives, the Commercial Drive Business Society makes an annual donation of $2,000.00 to the Grandview Woodland Community Policing, and this year was no exception.


The Grandview Woodland Community Policing spends its days providing crime prevention assistance and education to the Commercial Drive corridor and surrounding area, but one of the highlights for the community is its annual community outreach event, Cops, Kids & Commercial Drive, held at Grandview Park.  This annual signature back-to-school safety-oriented event for children and their families, held in partnership with the Vancouver Police Department is a huge draw and a fun filled day for all.


A long list of participants no doubt; it really does take a big community to make this event a such a success. 


Cops, Kids & Commercial Drive includes visits from VPD patrol officers with their emergency vehicles, the Motorcycle Squad, the Marine Squad, VPD and Transit Police Dog Squads. 


Vancouver Fire and Rescue, BC Ambulance Paramedics, Park Rangers and many other partner agencies including E-Comm. 9-1-1, Child ID, ICBC the City of Vancouver’s Neighborhood Emergency Preparedness Plan and the Vancouver Police Museum all set up engaging activations to be enjoyed by all those who attend.  A huge thank you goes out to the entire passionate group of community driven professionals and citizens who selflessly give their time to make this day possible.


Next time you pass by 1977 Commercial Drive, drop in to the Grandview Woodland Community Policing, and say hello to the some of the great people that help to keep The Drive safe.


See you next year for another arresting experience!
