Once again, a young Loss Prevention Officer working for the Downtown Business Improvement Association performs a heroic deed. The LPO officer witnessed a man rip headphones and an iPod off of a woman at a skytrain station. As soon as he heard the woman scream for help, his instincts were to help. He ran after the man and told him he was under arrest. The transit police chief awarded the LPO officer for his bravery with the Chief Officer's Award. A big congratulations goes to him! It continues to impress me how willing our guards are to help others without a second thought and am very pleased to have these people on board with us.

4 Year Anniversary of Moble Patrol
Genesis Security originally launched the Free Community Patrol Program in June 2005 around the neighbourhood of Kerrisdale. As neighbourhoods continued to support this program, more funds were invested into it allowing us to offer this service to more areas around Vancouver. Genesis' goal is to create a safer community for everyone and I am so pleased that this program has increased its patrol area ten times. From starting in Kerrisdale, it now covers almost all Vancouver residences and businesses West of Granville Street as well as Downtown and West End areas. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported this program and continually help it grow.
