The Vancouver Police Board and the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) announced that Clark Wilson partner Bernard Pinsky has been selected as the recipient of the 2021 Jim and Vicki Chu Community Safety Leader Award for his contributions toward crime prevention and community safety in Vancouver.

According to a press release from Clark Wilson, a long-time volunteer and community safety advocate, Pinsky became the founding chair of the community security advisory committee established by the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver in 2015. Forming a committee of subject matter experts, academics and community leaders, Pinsky worked with community organizations to receive federal government funding to improve overall security measures and practices.

Pinsky, whose practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions law and securities law, has spent significant volunteer hours creating a culture of community safety and fostering a closer working relationship with the VPD.
