In response to the opioid crisis and the dramatic rise in overdose deaths, a group of concerned citizens, in consultation with the Vancouver Police Department and neighbourhood residents, started the process of opening a Community Police Centre in Strathcona with the help of available civic funding.
The Strathcona CPC opens to the public at 872 East Hastings.
