Good Day Block Watch Captains, Co-Captains & Participants,

West Vancouver Police have responded to 406 calls for service since our last update.

Youth Violence

If you have not yet done so, please review a media release this week by West Vancouver Police Communications Officer Cst. Nicole Braithwaite regarding a concerning increase in incidents of youth violence in our community.

If you see activity of concern, please don’t hesitate to call West Vancouver Police. Call 604-925-7300 for non-emergency matters. Call 9-1-1 in an emergency, including events that involve an immediate threat to a person or property or to report a substantive crime in progress.


Again, just one Break-in reported this past week, on a residential construction site in the Westhill area. Thieves were able to easily pass through unsecured site fencing, then stole numerous handheld tools & other construction supplies. If you are planning or undertaking a construction plan or major renovation, please have a proactive discussion with contractors or site managers regarding security, especially for periods prior to the structure being closed-in & secured with security cameras or alarms re-installed.


A difficult week for theft reports, two vehicles stolen, one with keys believed to have been inadvertently left inside, along with five reported bicycle thefts, & four thefts from auto. Happily, one Caulfeild area resident noted a theft from auto in progress through their home surveillance system. and was able to provide details of the suspect, including vehicle identifiers. The suspect was subsequently identified & detained by officers checking the vehicle for an unrelated matter in Vancouver.
