Both calendars are proudly produced in partnership between the VPD Canine Unit / VPD Mounted Unit, and the Vancouver Police Foundation and are also supported by the Vancouver Police Department. Each calendar features 13-months of stunning photography, courtesy of local photographer Davin Manky, with design and layout support from local designer Yumi Simonson.
CANINE UNIT CALENDAR DETAILS:
The 2024 Canine calendar is a 13-month calendar featuring images of all 15 VPD Canine Unit dogs and their handlers that highlight various modes of transportation around the city. We would like to thank Grouse Mountain, Vancouver Canadians, The Skys No Limit – Girls Fly Too!, and the many internal VPD Units who supported calendar photography. All proceeds directly support BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and the BC Cancer Foundation. Since 2010, the calendar has raised nearly $550,000 dollars for BC Children’s Hospital and the BC Cancer Foundation. The Canine calendar was originally created in 2
010 in honor of the late Candy Anfield, who passed away from cancer. Special thank you to Constables Dennis Jesus, Chris Hudson, and Allan Bridges who champions this project from the Canine Unit.
MOUNTED UNIT CALENDAR DETAILS:
2024 marks the exciting introduction of this brand new VPD Mounted Unit Calendar, featuring all nine VPD horses and their riders, plus adorable barn-cat, PC Cheddar. The Vancouver Police Mounted Unit, established in 1908, patrols Stanley Park and the city of Vancouver on horseback. In addition to community and ceremonial events, they expertly manage crowds and enhance public safety. All proceeds from the Mounted Unit calendar will directly support the Vancouver Police Foundation in our efforts to fund VPD officer-initiated programs that enhance community safety and engagement. With over $14.5 million provided to nearly 300 programs since 1976, the VPF funds initiatives led by dedicated VPD officers who identify gaps and needs in Vancouver’s neighbourhoods.
The Vancouver Police Foundation supports programs and initiatives that fall under one of four pillars: Youth Programs, Mental Health & Addictions, Community Outreach & Engagement, and Technology & Special Equipment. You can help build a safer Vancouver by donating to the Vancouver Police Foundation.
