Help Us Build a Safer Community

VPD Cadet Program

The Vancouver Police Department and the Vancouver Police Foundation, along with the provincial and municipal governments, and the Program Founding Partners, are firmly committed to giving Vancouver’s youth every possible chance for a successful and happy life. Through mentorship, we can guide young people, especially those who live in low-income neighbourhoods, toward a positive future.

An incredible $892,000 was raised at the Night Patrol Gala in support of the new VPD Cadet Program. Both the provincial and municipal governments contributed $180,000 each toward the program.

Commencing in September of 2014, the 24-week program will include educational workshops, physical training, and team and life skill building exercises. Sixty (60) participants with diverse socio-economic backgrounds will be included in all levels of programming. Working with their peers and front line police officers, the participants will learn leadership, self-discipline and a desire for personal excellence. By successfully completing the program, the youth will gain a strong sense of self-worth, which is one of the greatest gifts we can offer.
