Vancouver Police – NOW

The Vancouver Police Department’s Neighbors on Watch (NOW) volunteer program engages community members to serve as the extra eyes and ears for police during highly visible and non-confrontational patrols.  NOW was formed in 2008 and many early Academy recruits remain in the program today.  Our mission is to reduce crime and make Vancouver a safer place, improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods, shopping centers and parks and increase collaboration between community members and police.  NOW volunteers have served our community through patrols, call-outs for missing people, identifying stolen vehicles and more.  While our main function is to serve our community during patrols, we also have long and short-term projects to suit all skills and physical abilities. 

“The Vancouver Police Department’s mission is to partner with the community to preserve life, protect property and enhance livability through equitable law enforcement and effective use of resources.  Volunteers help us work toward this mission every day.  The volunteers in the NOW program represent some of the best characteristics our community has to offer: resilience, service and dedication.  The Vancouver Police Department is proud to highlight and thank our volunteers during National Volunteer Week.” – Lieutenant McAvoy Shipp
