About the VPD
Beyond the Call
The Vancouver Police Department celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2011. For over a century-and-a-quarter the VPD has been keeping residents of Vancouver safe with a combination of innovative crime prevention techniques and old-fashioned police work.
The men and women of the VPD believe in a level of service that routinely goes “Beyond the Call.” They embrace standards of performance that include Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence (ICARE).
Our vision is nothing less than making Vancouver the safest major city in Canada. Our plans to achieve that goal are outlined in our Strategic Plan, or learn more about the VPD by browsing through other areas of this website.
