Marco Veronesi Biography
Strike Force Sergeant – City of Vancouver Police Dept.
I have been a Christian for 35 years and have seen the hand of God on my life. I am a graduate of SFU (criminology), have been married for 18 years and am the father of 3 children. I currently serve as police officer in the City of Vancouver and have done so for 20 years. During my policing career I have served in Patrol, Human Source Handling, Beach Patrol, the Emergency Response Team and Strike Force. I currently hold the rank of Sgt in Strike Force and have received 3 Chief Constables Unit Citations for bravery when faced with danger from my time in the Emergency Response Team. I love the City of Vancouver and count it a joy and a privilege to serve its citizens.
I have served on my Church Board (Glad Tidings Church) for 8 years (including 1.5 years as chairman) and I currently serve on the Board of Pacific Academy. One of the accomplishments that I am proud of was when I managed a $200,000 school building project in Uganda East Africa that was completed in 2013. I enjoy hunting as a form of connecting with the outdoors and I stay very physically active in my day to day life. Jesus is at the center of all I do and while we all struggle from time to time, I believe that the true test of a man and his character is how he responds during these struggles.
