Making Vancouver safer for Jesse and Jade

Story of Jesse and Jade

The VPD’s Canine Unit is a remarkable team that responds to the most dangerous calls, putting the lives of the dogs and their handlers in peril every day. July 16, 2022 was no different – and yet, it was. Please watch Constable Jesse Schellenberg reflect on that day. He draws a direct correlation between going home alive that night and the training and equipment he and his partner PSD Jade have received, thanks to the generosity of Vancouver Police Foundation donors.


Please consider making a donation today.

Your gift will help us provide vital funding for training programs and state-of-the-art safety equipment that fall outside of the regular VPD operating budget, but that keeps the dogs and their handlers safe.

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.
