Port Coquitlam’s Uniformed Crime Reduction Unit hits the streets

Port Coquitlam’s UCRU a new crime-fighting tool

Four-member team of Coquitlam RCMP officers will be focusing on crime hot spots in PoCo. Port Coquitlam’s Uniformed Crime Reduction Unit (UCRU) has hit the streets to shine a light on the city’s hotspots. The four-member team will increase police visibility in the downtown core and throughout parks and trails, and will assist general duty Mounties in PoCo when they’re busiest.

 

Port Coquitlam Launches New Arts and Culture Plan – TCCTV

New cultural roundtable starts as city unveils Imagine Port Coquitlam

More festivals and events, public art and stage plays are coming to Port Coquitlam. At least that’s what the public wants from the city, which last week officially launched Imagine Port Coquitlam – a new high-level document that aims to shape the arts, culture and heritage scenes over the next decade.

 

Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore doesn’t see the need for a regional fireworks ban.

“A lot of communities … use fireworks to bring the neighbourhood together on Halloween,” Moore said. “There’s definitely some benefits to it.” Moore also points to the fact that regardless of where people buy fireworks, they still risk hefty fines if they don’t follow the bylaws in their municipality.

Is it time to ban fireworks across Metro Vancouver?

It’s that time of year in Metro Vancouver – when some neighbourhoods sound like war zones and pets cower under kitchen tables, plumes of smoke wafting into homes. That’s right. It’s Halloween, which means it’s fireworks season.
