Funding Innovative Policing Programs in Vancouver
Through generous donations made by our community, the Vancouver Police Foundation funds innovative, creative, and inspiring policing programs each year. These programs fall outside of the regular operating budget of the city and aim to build bridges with the community.
Whether it is reaching out to at-risk youth, assisting marginalized women in the Downtown Eastside, protecting seniors and others from fraud and many more, the VPF funds programs that will directly benefit our city.
We fund programs that support those most vulnerable– like youth at risk of being recruited into gang life, helping seniors avoid fraud, empowering women through personal safety courses, and more. We fund programs that increase public safety and help VPD officers build bridges with the community, one person at a time.
Our board meets annually to review proposals submitted by VPD members. These officers are passionate about policing and serving their community. Funding these programs through donations shows them that the community truly appreciates their dedication.
