More than 1,200 guests were treated to a unique Night Patrol experience in support of essential policing services and community outreach programs at the sold-out Vancouver Police Foundation Night Patrol Gala. Premier Christy Clark, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson and singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan joined VPD Chief Jim Chu, along with a list of the city’s most philanthropic and illustrious personalities.
The evening was co-chaired by Peter and Joanne Brown, and Ryan and Cindy Beedie, and raised over $2.3 million, including $892,000 in support of the new VPD Cadet Program. “We recognize the need for the public and private sector to partner with the police in providing this very necessary funding at a time when government budgets are under stress,” said VPF chair Peter Brown.
