Diary of a Vancouver Beat Cop

I would like to introduce you to Steve Addison.

Steve, a Vancouver Police officer, has launched a gritty new blog about the life of an officer assigned to work in the city’s Downtown Eastside.

His blog,  Eastside Stories: Diary of a Vancouver Beat Cop, is a hard look at the area through his eyes and is definitely worth reading.  Steve has managed, in his first three posts, to cut right to the heart of the matter.

I worked in the Downtown Eastside for the first eight years of my career in law enforcement, and am very glad Steve decided to tackle this very important angle of providing the public with a view of what the Downtown Eastside is really like.

To Steve – kudos for sticking your neck out there.  It’s gutsy to be so honest, and for that, I applaud you.  I’m looking forward to reading what you have to say.

To everyone else, you can check out Steve’s blog at www.beatcopdiary.vpd.ca
