Funding Innovative Policing Programs in Vancouver
Through generous donations made by corporations and individuals, the Vancouver Police Foundation funds dozens of innovative, creative, and inspiring policing programs each year.
Whether it is reaching out to at-risk youth, assisting marginalized women in the Downtown Eastside, testing the effectiveness of a new tool, or purchasing a large piece of equipment, the VPF funds programs that will directly benefit our city.
We fund programs that are breaking new ground. Programs that promote research. Programs that encourage public participation and that help the community become more aware of crime prevention and safety. And programs that cement the role of the police in the community.
Our board meets annually to review proposals submitted by members of the VPD. These officers are passionate about policing and serving their community. Finding funding for their programs shows them that the community truly appreciates their dedication.
Because of the funds we raise, Vancouver has a better-equipped, better-trained police force.
