Mission Statement
"In fulfilment of its public trust, the VPD maintains public order,
upholds the rule of law, and prevents crime."

Integrity, Professionalism, Accountability, Respect

The Department is governed by the Vancouver Police Board under the authority of the British Columbia Police Act. The Police Board, which meets monthly, consists of the Mayor and six other representative citizens of the city. Sworn police officers are empowered to enforce the criminal law, other Federal statutes, Provincial laws, municipal by-laws and to generally maintain law and order within Vancouver.

The Chief Constable is directly responsible to the Police Board and thereby the citizens of Vancouver. The department is divided into four divisions, with a Deputy Chief Constable commanding each division and reporting to the Chief Constable.

These divisions and sections are further divided according to function or areas of responsibility.

Visit Instructions:
To log a visit, you must post a photo of you in front of the building described, with your GPS in the photo. No drive by photos.

I have had NO problems with taking photos of Police stations but please respect the fact that some services may be nervous about having their photo taken and inquire as to why... I have found that once things are explained they are more than happy to let me photograph the building, crest, chief... (they are people too!)
