Welcome to West Vancouver Police. Our Department is made up of 79 sworn police officers, 23 support staff members, and 75 community volunteers.

The jurisdictional boundaries of the Police Department span 89 square kilometres running roughly from the Squamish Nation Reserve and Capilano Road in the east to Horseshoe Bay in the west, and north on Highway 99 to the District of West Vancouver boundary at Montizambert Creek, south of the Village of Lions Bay.

The Department not only provides local police service but is also a participant in a number of regional integrated police teams with other municipal police organizations and the RCMP that address law enforcement issues that affect all British Columbia residents.  

Integrated Services of West Vancouver Police include the Integrated First Nations Unit, Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, Integrated Road Safety Unit, Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (Anti-Gang Squad), Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service, and Integrated Forensic Identification Service. 

We are continually evolving to meet the changing needs of the community using intelligence driven crime suppression techniques that result in West Vancouver continuing to be a much desired place to live and visit.
