At the outbreak of WWII Don Brown left high school and enlisted in the 12th Field Company, Royal Canadian Engineers, serving six years in the army. Before going overseas he married Helen Birch in 1939. In 1947 Don Brown joined the B.C. Provincial Police which was absorbed by the RCMP in 1950. He worked as a police officer in Burnaby from 1947 to 1954, and then was transferred to Ottawa (with a stop in Regina) for nine and a half years where he attended Carleton University to study forensics. In 1963 Don Brown was transferred back to Vancouver and bought and moved into a house on Watling Street in Burnaby where he still lived in 1990. Another transfer took him to Edmonton for five years, returning to Burnaby in 1975.

History/Biography
George Jeffery was a well-respected Burnaby police constable, having served first as a solider. Upon joining the police force in 1912, he was appointed to patrol the Central Park district, a position he held for twenty-two years. From his experiences confronting young shoplifters, he realized that the reason groups of boys were getting into trouble was due to a lack of recreational activities on offer. To combat this, he single-handedly organized the Burnaby Athletics Association in an old barn behind the Royal Oak Hotel, turning it into a competitive boxing ring and gym. Harriet and George Jeffery lived most of their married life in Central Park district with their three daughters; Patricia (married William Poole) a teacher in Burnaby prior to her marriage, Winnifred (married Fred Shaughnessy) Burnaby's 1929 May Queen, and Elsie (married Art Winterford) who excelled at badminton. In 1935 when the B.C. Provincial police replaced the Burnaby Police, Constable Jeffery quit the force (in order to stay in Burnaby) and instead worked at Oakalla Prison farm, retiring in 1945.
